You’ll Never Guess What This Stylish Bag Is Really Meant For
Toting your necessities to work frequently requires more than one bag. And if you’re one of the many people who bring lunch from home every day, that often means a plastic supermarket bag or some other unappealing adult lunch box option. Taking your midday meal to the office saves money, time, and helps you eat healthier, but we would never have described it as being cute. Well, until now, that is. Enter: Modern Picnic’s Luncher bag.
Launched this past spring, The Luncher is Modern Picnic’s first product and is as stylish and practical as they come. The vegan leather exterior is offered in six sophisticated color ways with an insulated interior. That means it can safely store everything from lunch to snacks to breast milk while you commute to and from the office. At $149, it’s a little more expensive than the Power Rangers plastic box you used a kid, but it also doubles as a “real” handbag and even includes an outer pocket where you can stow your phone. Oh, how times have changed!
Modern Picnic was launched by post-college, lunch-toting commuter Ali Kaminetsky, who wanted a more chic and sustainable alternative to plastic bags. Kaminetsky likes to call her creation “the Birkin of lunchboxes” (minus the five-digit price tag), and we’re inclined to agree. This bag adds instant polish to any outfit, can be carried as a crossbody or by its top handle, and stylishly saves your food — what’s better than that?
Kaminetsky’s fashionable and functional brainchild has made such a splash, in fact, that the brand recently introduced The Snacker, a pouch version meant for — you guessed it — snacks. At $49, it fits the equivalent of a carton of raspberries so you can bring healthy nibbles with you to work, on a plane, in the car… you get the picture.
We’re not sure what the brilliant minds at Modern Picnic will think of next, but if these bags are any indication, the future looks fashionable and food-friendly. Bon appe-chic.
