The glossy new saddle bag is the accessory of choice for this year’s tweeds, suedes and leathers. From Michael Kors to Ralph Lauren, the AW15/16 style focuses on equestrian chic. So we were delighted to see this style so beautifully captured in the new D’Inzeo, just arrived in London from Italy. With its softly structured shape and simple details—the rich country colours of dark brown and chestnut, together with black and dark navy, the long leather strap and unfussy stirrup-leather and buckle clasp—this super bag adds instant update to this season’s wardrobe.
Named after the great Italian showjumpers, Raymondo and Piero, the neat little D’Inzeo is designed and made by an established Italian handbag specialist in quality leather. In keeping with the new season’s smaller saddlebag styles, the D’Inzeo is neat, easy to wear as a cross-body or over the shoulder. It is deceptively capacious, at 24 x 23 x 6 cm (9-9 1/2in by 2 1/2in), it easily holds mobile, keys and wallet, along with the all-essential hairbrush, lipstick and makeup.
It is practical and super-secure, with a full top zip closure as well as a broad over-strap, and the adjustable leather shoulder strap allows you to use it as a cross-body for travelling or racing—the exterior full-length pocket give easy access for tickets and other slim items when you are on the go. The interior is lined and washable, with one compartment and a zipped pocket for valuables.
