If I were a designer, I’d be most successful in bag design. I appreciate high-quality, full-grain leather and the classic shape of satchels, frame bags, and briefcases. I wouldn’t compromise the look of my bags with all the bells and whistles of extra pockets, logo prints, and funky shapes. And if you’ve been paying attention to what’s on the runways and in stores, briefcase-inspired bags have especially been a big fashion trend. Take for instance the highly sought after Proenza Schouler PS1 and the Mulberry Bayswater, both of which run over $1000! But don’t worry. Look at all these beautiful bags I’ve found while browsing Ebay. Ah, makes me want to go thrift store shopping!
