Burberry Gets Knighted

I love when a luxury designer can recognize that its claim to fame is getting old and then comes up with something fresh and new. As ‘classic’ and ‘timeless’ as they are, I was getting tired of the Burberry check bags. So I was thrilled to see a recent magazine ad full of punk style and edginess, so much so that it took me a second to even realize it was Burberry. Creative Director Christopher Bailey launched the Burberry Icons collection for Fall 2007 and the Knight Bag is the coolest, newest addition to this line.

The inspiration comes from British luxury and the Burberry equestrian knight, and the bag incorporates medieval influences all over. It’s a tough black leather satchel with pyramidal nickel studs covering the body and front ruching – it’s the most edgy piece I’ve ever seen Burberry create. The price is a stretch (£1,595.00), but if you have it to spare, I think it’s worth it – though embellished, it’s a simple bag that works well with anything.
