Bike Chic - Leather Satchel by Londonderry

You may have mastered a bike chic outfit, but what about your accessories? Somehow that technical nylon messenger bag just doesn't look right anymore.

Instead, feast your eyes on the gorgeousness of the Londonderry Leather Satchel. The supple, caramel-colored perforated leather looks good enough to eat. And with the black trim, you get a really versatile color story that would go with anything.

There's an incredible level of attention to detail. From the gold-tone hardware, to the sunny neon yellow zipper tape, this bag has style.

The bottom compartment is meant to hold an extra pair of shoes, I guess. But now that you've mastered the art of biking in heels, you can use it to store extra accessories like scarves, tights, lingerie, chocolate bars, etc.

Cleverly the Londonderry can be worn many different ways.  As a cross-body messenger, tote, satchel, backpack, and hobo. Oh, and your bike can wear it as a pannier, thanks to the little loops at the top.

Poking around Londonderry's Tumblr gives you a peek into the making of the satchel. I'm totally fascinated by the process of going from concept, to sketch, to prototype, to finished product.

In fact, I've gone back to my roots and started a little design project of my own. Can't wait to share it with you guys when it's a bit more concrete.
