Dbramante 1928 Leather Laptop Bag

Price: €260

Rating: ***

There is a certain type of business person who takes great pride in having a daily work bag which, although made of expensive leather, looks as if it has been beaten up several times. In fashion it's known as a 'distressed' look.

It is designed to effect tradition and noble non-fastidiousness. But just how do you get this Hogwarts headmaster chic for your laptop bag? The truly classy way is to 'weather' it over time.

Dbramante 1928's satchel case is a good place to start. Boasting two buckled pockets (another approved effect), it can take laptops up to 16 inches in diameter. It's made of pretty high-end leather, so will scuff nicely, with just the right amount of trendy creases. Complete the look with an expensive brolly and a Burberry trenchcoat.
