Go Gear: shoulder bags

Carry whatever doesn't fit in the boot with style.

Made from corduroy, this large shoulder bag lacks the flair associated with Lamborghini.

A big Mini bag

Adorned with a retro Mini image and the Houses of Parliament in the background, just in case you were not sure that the heritage of the small car was British. The outer fabric is made of PVC, while the interior is apparently twill. Inside the bag are small compartments to store your mobile phone and pens or any other accoutrements you may need for that swinging '60s party. A hip, retro bag to go with your hip, retro Mini.

Grade "a"

Aprilia began life as a scooter-manufacturing company, but the name is now synonymous with speed, as it is the fourth-largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world -though this bag looks like it would be used more by a bicycle courier than a hardcore motorcyclist. It features a large, lowercase "a" on the waterproof exterior and "aprilia racing" in reflective graphics. Inside is a compartment for a laptop. Available from www.maxmoto.co.uk for Dh262.

Night Vision

Made from corduroy, this large shoulder bag has "Automobili Lamborghini since 1963" embossed in a raggedy script on its front side. The navy blue satchel is large enough to comfortably accommodate a laptop, but is perhaps a little plainer in style than one would expect from the Italian marque; we can't see the brand's flamboyant and stylish CEO, Stephan Winklemann, draping this over his shoulder for a business meeting.
