The Burberry Pocket Bag is a stunning winner.
To create a new bag for Burberry’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection, Riccardo Tisci headed to the archives. The chief creative officer found a bag in a soft luggage style with leather details, decked in the signature Burberry check, or windowpane check. Sold between 1981 to 1990, it was known as the “Michelle Shopper”.
From this discovery, Tisci designed the Pocket Bag, unveiled on the Spring/Summer 2020 runway. Crafted from premium canvas with contrasting topstitched leather, the chic utilitarian tote features a front pocket that bears the stamp of a logo graphic. You can slip it over your shoulders, or carry it by the sculptural top handles with the shoulder strap swinging or detached.
The combination of equestrian and military influences links back to the house’s heritage, and draws memories of the former logo of the knight on horse.
Available in three sizes — mini, medium and extra-large (fits A3-size documents) — the Pocket Bag is shaping up to be Burberry’s next signature style, as it returns in Pre-Fall 2020 offerings in new colourways and prints.
