I have been searching for ~the black school bag~ for quite some now. Something that is sturdy and will last me many happy years of use, big enough to hold the many textbooks I'll no doubt be studying through medical school, timeless enough to match my current and  future wardrobe,  devoid of patent leather, plain yet possesses a magical something to avoid it being uninteresting, and most of all, NO OBNOXIOUS METAL HARDWARE SHIT. I don't need dangly chains and annoying tassels and tacky spikes and studs all over my bag! I need something that I can haul my heavy textbooks around in, and with college and medical looming ahead of me, my bag needs to be able to survive many years of heavy use. I've since dejectedly realized that such a bag does not exist, and that my dreams of the consummate bag are nothing more than flights of fancy.

Luckily, Gareth Pugh Fall 2010 has solved this problem for me.

Look at this fucking bag! Unobtrusive zippers! Matte leather! Certainly large enough to hold my schoolbooks as I scuttle around campus. The quilted X design is absolutely stunning, timeless, and suits my gawth sensibilities perfectly.

Sadly, I am positive this bag will be *at least* a couple Gs, far beyond my realm of obtainable covets. I sigh wearily. At the very least, I am pleased that the black bag I have always dreamed of does really truly exist, and that my favorite designer makes it. The irony is that once I'm a doctor and am through with my schooling, I'd be able to afford this bag... but would have little use for something so large.
