Designer bags come in different styles. Many are only suited to certain occasions. One way to categorize them is by separating designer bags into daytime, evening and multipurpose. Daytime bags are usually either business or shopping bags. Both types should be practical, sturdy and stylish. This is what all of them have in common. Where they differ is the shape, closure systems, colors ,detailing, design, and materials.
Messenger bags are instantly recognized as daytime bags. Their history is long, as they started as utility bags carried by postal workers, couriers and other types of messengers. However, in the last couple of decades, messenger bags became more than mere utility items as they have been noticed by designers. A number of the major, luxury, designer fashion houses now make these bags. Many are made in Europe and shipped worldwide.
The basic shape of a messenger bag is a rectangle with a long strap that goes over the shoulder or across the body. The closure is usually flapped, sometimes with buckles. One of the advantages of the messenger bag is that it is very roomy and the perfect shape for carrying papers, documents and laptops. The interiors are most commonly divided into sections to make organizing easier. Nowadays, most come with special pockets for smart phones as well. Because they can be carried across the body, messenger bags are comfortable and secure. Messenger bags are the perfect solution for someone looking for a young-looking urban business bag.
