It's easy to get comfortable with the bag you own. It carries stuff? Oh, then it's done its job, hasn't it? Well, not exactly. We're here to help you realise that not all bags come equal and sometimes, you just have to expand your horizons a little when it comes to getting the bag suited for all your different occasions. In other words, thanks to Salvatore Ferragamo, which is launching a new collection of bags entitled Bagsxyz, you'll see what thinking outside of the box looks like. Featuring a trapeze shape, the bag comes in a trope of colors (ten) and four materials including calf, tweed, ostrick and lizard. Looking at the bag, one might think it looks something resembling a portable treasure chest and in some is! One reason is the unique-to-each-bag lock attached to each individual piece. That way, not every bag is the same and guarantees greater security, especially if you're the type of person to leave your stuff lying around. And even if you're the kind of person who can be quite careless with stuff, the Bagsxyz has you covered through its two compartments spaces: one zippered for the safety of your important belongs, and the other open for your subtle flex of accessories and items. Meanwhile, the bag also comes in three sizes, with the top handle and shoulder-strap adjustable (and removable). So, whether you're going out for the night and need it attached to the hip, or a casual weekend lunch with family and friends, the bag is versatile enough that you'll have better things to worry about than what type of bag you should be using over the other. Besides, wouldn't it be nice to try something new?
