Burberry Newest Pocket Bag Has Already Reached Icon Status, Here’s Why...
For the first time in its history, Burberry have launched a campaign centred around one of their bags. Designed by Creative Director Riccardo Tisci, the Pocket bag has already cemented itself as one of the fashion house’s most iconic pieces.
Tisci has proven himself to be a master at taking statement pieces from Burberry’s rich archive and giving them a fresh modern, twist, which is exactly what’s he’s done with the Pocket bag. Taking inspiration from an archival design which had a rigid structure, Tisci updated the tote with leather taping, a front pocket for accessibility, and bold logo detailing.
So how did the Pocket bag become an international bestseller in just weeks?
Well, firstly a certain Hadid might have had something to do with it. With the campaign starring none other than Bella Hadid, the supermodel was shot in a dynamic series of photos taken by the duo Inez and Vinoodh. Taking inspiration from the Burberry Animal Kindom – a house code created by Thomas Burberry and reignited by Tisci throughout his tenure so far – Hadid is shot posing with a Burberry big cat. Upon release the pictures immediately took Twitter and Instagram by storm, propelling the Pocket into our social consciousness.
But even without Hadid, we have a feeling that the Pocket bag would have caught on. A home run for the brand, its equal parts chic and functional with its archival silhouette, user-friendly ‘pocket’ and it comes in a pretty wide range of sizes and colours to choose from. Not to mention the iconic Burberry logo that comes emblazoned on the front.
Functional & Affortable
Like all Burberry designs, the craftsmanship is next to none. Coming in several canvas/leather options, with colours that work well with almost any outfit you have in mind, each design is lightweight to use and it comes with a detachable shoulder strap for a hands-free look. And best yet, the price is one that doesn’t break the bank, especially if you opt for the Mini Pocket Bag, which is actually anything but ‘mini’, measuring 26.5 cm wide and 23 cm high that’s great enough for a day out.
