If it’s time to upgrade your work bag, let yourself be tempted by the line of business bags at Aigner (starting from Rs30,000, at the Maurya Sheraton, New Delhi and the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai).The Evolution and Bogart collection for men offers a range of briefcases in classic styles made of Vacchetta leather with saddle-stitched seams, available in black and neutral shades. For the women’s Gloria bag, curvy is the buzzword. The bag is available in four sizes, from XS to L, and in metallic, neutral, pastel and jewelled tones. The equestrian-inspired details, such as the horseshoe closure, dress up the bag, ensuring that it moves effortlessly from day to evening.
Another great work bag from the brand is the Marisa. The extra-large pouch-shaped handbag, available in canvas or leather with a brass-studded handle, makes it an ideal accessory for women who have a lot to carry around.
If your bag collection is getting a revamp, the shoe closet shouldn’t be left behind. Italian shoemakers Fratelli Rossetti’s new collection is just out (Rs15,000 onwards, at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai). It doesn’t matter if you wear pumps, stilettos, flip-flops, sandals, boots or moccasins to work—you’ll get them all here. The designs are simple and classic, made from crocodile and lasered leathers that give a snakeskin effect, patent, crust and soft leathers and silk and linen fabrics. The men’s line focuses on classic elegance and uses soft calfskins and hand-aged Napa leather for the moccasins, lace-ups and slip-ons.
