- Can it easily coordinate with every outfit?
- Will it securely carry all the items you need to get you through the day? Plus all the extra things you toss in there in case you are suddenly thrown into unexpected problem-solving situations?
- Does it look on-trend but still classic enough to last past next season and beyond?
- Is it made to endure the train, bus, café floor, being stuffed in a cramped desk drawer, or filled with gym clothes and spare shoes?
