WHY: Our judges loved the sleek and minimal feel of this holdall, which also has more than a hint of luxury thanks to its subtle embossed logo and high quality details like silver hardware and a vegan saffiano leather trim. The panel commented in their notes:

The fantastic deep pockets, both external and internal encouraged lots of admiring hand lunges and the simple magnetic easy to open clasp was another feature that our judges loved.
