Jil Sander Sporty Madame leather tote
Off all the designer daybags available to buy for A/W 2012, Jil Sander's 'Sporty Madame' tote is rising to the top of our most-wanted pieces. Stylish, subtle and suitable for almost all occasions, the tote is one of those 'best friend' bags that you can't imagine ever wanting to let go. It's practical and stylish and just has everything you need from an everyday piece with that little bit of extra Jil Sander chic thrown in for good measure.
The bag is a classic tote shape with a vaguely-retro frame top formation and top handle/strap combo that makes it just the little more practical than the old-style purses the inspired it. Sander's clean lines are evident here, preventing it from straying too far into memory lane territory. A delicate touch of pale pink softens the bag's streamlined sportiness a little, and gives it a feminine quality that we find hard to resist. Definitely one to consider for a long-term investment!
