The trend for replacing a designer handbag each season has become a thing of the past.
Recent times have seen a sea-change in the way men and women buy fashion. A bag 'that works' that will look stylish and have handy pockets for iPads, laptops and personal belongings is seen now as investment-dressing. Still contemporary and high-end but ultimately functional and will cater for all the needs of modern men and women
This exclusive range for Apple by Marshall Bergman is a collection of sleek minimalist designs with inspiration taken from strong architectural forms, to create clean, uncomplicated bags. This pioneering accessory range combines understated luxury with a thoroughly modern 'First lady of cool' look.
The two Marshall Bergman handbag designs in the range are both made from premium Italian leather.. the 'Tahlia' - an elegant shoulder bag (pictured) or the slightly larger 'Alyssa'. Both styles come with quilted internal pockets designed to protect and fit whatever laptop you are carrying.
For men, the 'Theo' and 'Corbin' messenger bag styles come with adjustable straps and a multitude of pockets in choices of black or brown leather or khaki canvas. The Marshall Bergman brand is a fascinating story of old meets new. Co-founder Suzi Bergman's great grandmother Sarak Bergman founded her workshop in Ludwigshafen Germany in 1890. A maker of utilitarian bags, Bergman foresaw a need for a functional bag that carried household grocery items and tools. This was continued by her son Isaac Bergman, a shoe maker in the early 1920's.
Two generations later, Melanie Marshall and Suzi Bergman founded Storksak, a brand that created a new standard in stylish, functional baby bags for parents. Following the global success of the Storksak concept, (with bags now being available in over 30 countries worldwide and seen on the arms of A-listers Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt) Suzi and Melanie spotted a gap in the market for an innovative new work bag brand, and launched Marshall Bergman
Marshall Bergman's premier collection combines handsome classic styling with beautifully designed functional interiors. Every Marshall Bergman bag is beautiful enough to use as your handbag and perfect for your work essentials. The bags are made from the finest materials and crafted to the highest standards.
Marshall Bergman bags retail from GBP65 to GBP250. Available exclusively at www.Apple.com/uk.
