Joy of joys, instead of a zip it has a snap-closure like an old fashioned frame purse. What's more it has two sorts of strap: one 'cross-body' strap for those 'hands free' moments, and also straps to carry the bag on the shoulder. There are several pockets and compartments to keep you organised, plus it has great detailing - it has boxed pleating used on the front pockets, and a very pretty lining.
Wow, look at that, v smart in jet black.
Milo & Saint has several other styles - the Chantry clutch bag; the Drayton bag which is similar to the Hardwick but slightly smaller and simpler in design, and the main compartment has a zip closure; and the Franklin tote which has a long shoulder strap, and a large zipped main compartment, for totin' around lots of stuff, elegantly.
The bags can be bought directly from the Milo & Saint website.
