Our task for last week was to draw out the handbags we had thought up. These are my simple sketches for the bags in the small range I’m thinking of.
First off, there is a classic design, loosely inspired by the Birkin bag, with two short handles and one long strap to hold from your shoulder or from across the body.
Then there is a basket-like laptop bag, which I would like to make in neoprene. It’s thick, solid, and protective both against bumps and water. Perfect for a laptop bag. It doesn’t look supremely professional, but it depends if you’re a scuba-diving web designer or a cycling city girl… errr… yeah. I’d have said city boy, but I don’t think men would be attracted to this shape.
Next up, the holdall. I love going away, and this is what my ideal duffle bag for a weekend getaway would look like.
Ok, I have no idea what I was thinking when I doodled this. It has pockets though!
