From a briefcase to a backpack, these bags from South Coast Plaza boutiques carry it all—and more.
Go Rogue at Coach's new Made-to-Order Pop-Up

1. Berluti
Add a distinct spot of color to your ensemble with the Un Jour alligator-embossed leather briefcase ($31,000). Precious, luxurious and rare in availability, this bag is made in Italy and sold in small quantities only through SCP.

2. Coach
Like Mary Poppins pulling yet another wonder from her carpet bag, Coach’s revamped boutique has unveiled another surprise—the Made-to-Order Rogue Pop-Up. It’s one of two such temporary spots in the United States (the only permanent location is at the Coach House in NYC), and it’s a place where imaginations run wild. Fans can custom design their own Rogue bags ($795 to $2,600), choosing from three different sizes, a trio of leathers in a dozen hues and two handle choices, for a total of 1 million-plus options.

3. Gucci
Pack your weekend essentials in the fashion house’s new web dome shape duffle ($2,900), with its sturdy shape and supersoft shoulder strap. The patterned denim tote will create conversation with its modern yet vintage feel.

4. Montblanc
The company is known for leaving a lasting impression—whether a bold inked signature to seal a deal or a trusty timepiece to ensure you always keep your appointment. The German-based brand further boasts talent by crafting some of the finest leather accessories, each timeless in style with unending durability. Debuting this month is the 20-piece 1926 Montblanc Heritage Collection, marking the very year the company debuted these venerable leather goods. Using a unique tanning process found only in Tuscany, Italy, vegetable-based tannins give each of the pieces a mature look without the weathered wrinkles. Bag the 1926 Heritage large backpack ($1,850).
