The Gangster Briefcase

With the small matter of ruthlessly murdering people aside, gangsters, at least sartorially speaking, are pretty damn cool.

So imagine our delight when we stumbled upon these gangster-inspired briefcases from Lanvin.

A similar style to the classic businessman's attaché case, but with a 1960s casino vibe, these bags were key pieces from the French label's winter 2012 collection.

The cases come in two sizes, a larger laptop model, which has a detachable iPad case, passport and wallet compartment, and a smaller version, which fits a tablet. They're also available in different colours, including iced calfskin in dark brown, burgundy or petrol blue or a rubberised calfskin in navy or mastic.

Large case; £1,440, small case; £895. Purchase them here.
