Suddenly there are lots of navy bags around. A bit softer than black, but still goes with absolutely everything. Navy blue leather also ages well, and starts looking as if it's been your favorite bag for centuries, whereas old black bags often look as if they need a good polish, a bit more sloppy than casual. A good one for your Christmas list...
