You'll be able to find this pic. on eLuxury.com
Once you find the style of handbag you're looking for
Click on "Alternative Views"

THIS bag Vs. THAT bag
Am considering a new bag for work. The requirements for the ideal bag are:
1. Light
2. Sufficiently sturdy for A4 sized files, diaries etc.
3. Hardy & durable
4. Shoulder bag and hand-held abilities
5. Available in conservative, yet possibly trendier dark colours like Indigo, Dark Chocolate brown or black (last choice).
6. Many internal pockets, especially for the indispensable mobile phone (if at all possible as there are not many bags with this feature)

Would love a Balenciaga Office as I'm always looking for a "legitimate" reason to buy this bag. Need "legitimate reason" because I always prefer small to medium sized bags unless practicality dictates otherwise. Work is one of those uncompromising reasons that demand a big bag! Love the Indigo Office or one of those canvas-leather ones available on Aloharag.com now.

As for the Chanel Cerf albeit in the sturdier caviar-like leather and not the deer skin, the black would be most ideal. The tan/camel and pink colours are less appropriate.

Would appreciate any comments, feedback from those who have experienced the dilemma of purchasing the above-mentioned bags or any other work bags...

i say cerf.
the balenciaga office bag doesnt have a shoulder strap.
its more of a smaller version of the voyage than a larger version of the medium.

The cerf is probably better as your work bag. It's more conservative and business-like.

What about the Hogan shopper bag? I think the cerf is a little too basic.

I kinda like the Hogan shopper in the green they offered when the bag first came out (and in the medium, not the large size). but I think in a regular color it's boring and I'm not crazy about how squishy it is.

I use my Balenciaga office for school and I have to say that it looks fabulous but it's a PAIN to have to lug it around all day using the handles which are too short to comfortably sling over the shoulder. So I'd say yes, get the Cerf tote for the sake of practicality.

cerf. It is more profesional, more useful, and the leather will sustain weight better than the Balenciaga will. Plus, it can be worn on the shoulder and it is far more classic.
