Rules and stuff:
Carven kills it when it comes to sophisticated, tailored youthfulness. They design for men and women who are willing to grow up — buttoning their shirts up, wearing sharp blazers, and reluctantly joining their family for brunch at the country club — but only so much. We love this bag with its Fair Isle pattern. The result is a wintery and playful satchel, perfect to pack your computer for that ski trip to the Swiss Alps. Here’s a few more Carven bags to enjoy on Polyvore.
