Burberry Patent Beaton Bag

I love going inside a Burberry boutique. It's difficult to explain why. They tend to be on the boring side in regards to interior decor, and sometimes the staff can be a bit like the sales assistants in the famous "Julia-Roberts-hooker-at-a-Beverly-Hills-boutique" scene. So why the attraction? Classic Burberry check-print top coats, cashmere scarfs, and wall-to-wall nova check bags for starters. Going inside one of these British design staples satisfies my cravings for a bit of "northern exposure". Aside from my winter fantasies, Burberry always delivers classic designs, but, as of late, with decidedly modern twists.

A perfect example of Burberry's shift from predictable to chic is the Patent Beaton Bag. Quilted patent leather never looked so hip. Nickel hardware adorns a decorative leather strap with buckle detail, and the satin-lined interior is home to one main zipped compartment, a small rear zip pocket, and several multi-functional pockets. An open top keeps the design from appearing "stuffy". The 'Patent Beaton', which measures a very generous 18 x 12 x 7, is such a fun bag that only the attention to detail and quality craftsmanship would serve as hints to its origin.

Available in the classic Burberry colors black, stone, trench, and berry red (shown), the Patent Beaton Bag comes in at a cool $1975 via Burberry. Of course, I'll go inside the boutique to browse the entire Fall collection for the full "Burberry" experience.
