COS is one of my favourite shops. I love the minimalist designs, the modern cuts and the forward-thinking fabrics. I don't shop there often, but when I do I look for a future classic.
This leather bag ticks that box. It's simple but ever-so stylish (note the flash of gold on the zip, buckle detail and detachable strap), its deceptively plain shape conceals three interior compartments and the soft, supple leather promises to age and improve with wear.
At £89, it's a classic that's worth the cash. I especially like that it complements both smart and casual wardrobes. And, it goes without saying that I love the separate sections which help keep the contents of my bag organised. Carry it like a satchel or cradle it like an oversized clutch.
As well as burgundy, the bag also comes in black with a silver zip, buckle detail and detachable strap. Btw, the Uniqlo coat is the one I blogged about earlier this month. As you can see, I decided the black version was the keeper. After all, my Zara cape fulfils the camel quota!
