In leather goods, all possible shapes have more or less been explored, from the simplest, shopping bag or satchel, to the most unusual, like a heart or a book. Halfway between the classic bag and the sassy bag, there is a category that is both wise and offbeat, inspired by the world of luggage. Rigid like boxes and equipped with a handbag handle, these small hybrid bags borrow the lines of a vanity or a case. Inside, a limited daily necessities are invited instead of toiletries or family jewels. For the spring-summer season, luxury houses deliver their version of this neo-vanity.
