I was searching through my favorite fashion technology blogs and found some designer solar bags way back in 2010. Elle Magazine teamed up with designers such as Tommy Hilfiger, Rogan, Loomstate, and Vena Cava to create ELLE/Portable Light Project bags. The bags are to were auctioned off on Ebay to support the Portable Light Project. Most looked amazing, some were just technology stuck to an old bag design, like DVF. My favorite is the one above by Rogan. 

According to Treehugger,  "the bags were designed in collaboration Sheila Kennedy who invented the Flexible Light and Power pack (FLAP). It has a USB port, LED lights, rechargeable battery, and a flexible solar panel. When the FLAP pack is built into a bag, it can be used to charge your cell phone or used as a reading light"
