    Your favorite, Plain Jane satchel (often featuring a neon twist) has gotten a fairy godmother, or should we say, godfather, in the form of menswear designer Christopher Shannon. For spring, he revamped the simple satchel for an over-the-top capsule collection that was inspired by '80s pop star, John "Jellybean" Benitez.
