Valextra's created the sort of handbag I dream about with this mini Boston duffel.
I've always found the classic styling and clean lines of a Boston bag a bit boring, but Valextra's made me reevaluate my stance. The secret is that luxury alligator skin, genuine of course. PETA might not be pleased, but the scaly skin is absolutely gorgeous. I can't imagine any embossing job could look quite as opulent. A coat of glaze over the top makes the skin really shine.
Valextra knows how special this material is, so it's fitted the platform base with protective metal feet. They'll ensure the pale surface doesn't quickly show signs of wear and tear. The rest of the bag may be a different matter as white fabrics often become stained, but hopefully the glazing will protect it a little.
This Boston has some serious limitations. It's on the small side, so while it might suit evening use we'll struggle with it during the day. Its handles are short too. That's not the worst thing on a small bag, but most of us prefer a hands-free carrying option. And the big drawback, this Boston's price. At $9330 it's far too expensive for most of us to consider. But goodness it's pretty!
