SWISH AND MINIMALIST CARRYING
TED BAKER STARK $488, tedbaker.com If you must have a briefcase for carrying your stuff, you could do a lot worse than this gorgeous offering from Ted Baker, decorated in a slick micro-perfortated leather outer. The lining is classic TB, with a funky print, and you get lots of pockets within which to stash your belongings. There’s a padded laptop sleeve, which, though designed for a 13-incher, sadly won’t accomodate thicker, older laptops. The chunky handles are great to grasp, and there’s a shoulder strap for added comfort.
