London, Oct 2 (ANI): This season's "It Bag" is the new wine-filled handbag Vernissage, which features a cunningly concealed easy-pour tap from which you squeeze a cheeky drink.
It's available in three "designer" colours and varieties - chardonnay viognier in white, black for syrah cabernet shiraz and a pink one for rose.
The design is Swedish but fortunately the contents are French.
And experts even claim that boxed wine has the advantage of keeping vino fresher than in a bottle.
One Swiss creator took it upon herself to redesign the traditional handbag and make it fit for the modern woman - and it even comes complete with a special compartment for a bottle of wine, the Daily mail reported.
Swiss creator Claudia Eicke said she had the idea while thinking of a bag that would hold all the items needed for a whole day.
And with women whose lifestyle is a constant race against the clock, she needed to invent a bag that would be suitable for work as well as shopping trips and parties.
The end result, called the Envoyage Taschen Weekender, solves the problem with a special tunnel compartment at the base.
The useful space is just the right size for a standard size bottle of wine, as well as a pair of high heels, perfect for that mad dash to an event after work.
"The idea was based on the things women do in the day - working, shopping and going to a party," she said.
The bag measures 34 by 27 cm and is made of French goat leather.
It is currently on sale for 863 pounds and can be ordered through the Envoyage website - www.envoyage.ch (ANI)
