THE BURBERRY ORCHARD BAG
The Burberry Orchard bag is one of 3 key shapes from the Burberry Prorsum Autumn Winter 2012 Womenswear collection. It is a large zip-top tote inspired by vintage luggage that could double up as an overnight bag. The Burberry Orchard bag is also available in a range of color variations and fabrics.
Shiny gold finish hardware contains approximately 0.2 microns of palladium for an anti-tarnish protective layer. Fashionable oversize zippers provide a metallic highlight that contrasts with the deep autumnal colors of the collection.
Engraved “Burberry” metal tabs inspired by vintage luggage, jewelry-inspired enamel “Burberry” plaques and embossed “Burberry” branding.
Burberry Prorsum grosgrain lining for subtle brand identity
Hand-finished rolled handles with luggage inspired Bombé detail. “Bombé” is a French word meaning “rounded or raised”. This detail requires very skilled Italian craftsmen to inlay cork underneath the leather and stitch the details into place.
