If you've tried to buy a weekender recently, there is a sad fact that you know all too well: many of them are dreadfully boring to look at, and the ones that aren't are often so expensive that you won't be able to afford to take them on vacation for at least a year. And then, while browsing Net-a-Porter, I came across the Eddie Harrop Voyager Weekender Bags.
The silhouette of these range of bags is a familiar one; big, roomy, with double top handles and an optional shoulder strap. Plenty of brands leave their travel gear at that, but each of the London-based designer's bags also feature a flourish of some sort amid all the neutral leather: stars, fringe, prints. As you might expect from the contemporary feel of the designs, they're also not back-breakingly expensive; the all-leather bags retail for $1,235 via Net-a-Porter.
