Well, this is new. I have never seen a handbag that so perfectly mimics a tiny suitcase, that’s for sure. But Samsonite has taken the plunge with their Graviton Shoulder Bag. It is an interesting prospect, especially for those of us that travel a lot or simply have an obsession with travel gear. That said, I, who is admittedly a travel geek, wouldn’t carry this. Why?
It’s just kind of strange- in a way that makes people stare and wonder “How did that girl shrink her carry-on?” But I’m still drawn to it, probably because I like miniature things, but most likely because I’m thinking about the one occasion that I would wear it- if I had a matching luggage set. But we are handbag lovers, and we know one rule of purchasing is not to buy anything that would only work if another desire were fulfilled: so don’t buy it if it would look better if you were taller, curvier, or had a great purple wrap sweater. So I’m letting this one go, but not without extreme curiosity- I can’t wait to see what Samsonite has up their sleeve. Buy through Zappos for $204.
