40 Modern Messenger Bags

From Spaceship Storage Satchels to Poverty-Ending Purses

— January 17, 2013 — Eco
These modern messenger bags provide an update to the classic side bag. This accessory has remained a staple for decades, constantly appearing within the lines of upscale, budget and vintage labels.

The continued relevancy of the messenger bag stems from its practical appeal. It is often conceived of as a suit case-purse hybrid, preferred for the considerable amount of storage space that they contain while also maintaining a professional look about them.

Designers have capitalized on the demand with various updates, seen here in spaceship storage satchels and poverty-ending purses. These marketing tactics have remixed the style while also remaining true to its most basic elements, apparent in the long leather straps, snap buttons, elongated zippers and fold over closures.
