Arlington leather messenger bag

messengerbag.jpg

For some bizarre reason, I’ve been fixated on finding the perfect leather messenger bag. I really can’t explain why, but I think my subconscious has decided on a look that hasn’t reached my conscious brain yet. Getting away from the inner workings of my mind, this Arlington leather messenger bag is perfect for whatever look my brain has decided for me. It would also look good for those days when you’ve had enough of a black messenger bag.

Monocle x Comme des Garçons: Scent One – Hinoki review

monoclehinoki.jpg

New male fragrances that aren’t endorsed by David Beckham are pretty rare these days, so it’s refreshing to see a magazine like Monocle decide to make one. Given the care they’ve taken in designing their magazine and website, it’s an almost certainly that that Hinoki will be given the same amount of care and attention.

WISHLIST: River Island Marvel Cap

Now I know for a fact that I wasn’t the only one disappointed with Met Gala-attending celebrities lack of Superhero costume inspiration. In fact, Zac Posen was the only attendee who matched up to my high standards of fancy-dress. Therefore, I was delighted when I came across this River Island cap with Marvel Comic decoration (Persil, Armani, River Island- what isn’t Marvel on at the moment!)

Ksubi x Kanye sunglasses collection

It’s rare to see a hip-hop artist so readily accepted by the fashion elite like Kanye West has been. The only other contender is Andre 3000. However, Mr. West is on a level of his own when it comes to designer collaborations. In addition to his Air Yeezys, his clothing label Pastelle also has an upcoming sunglasses collection with Ksubi.

Penfield Oxon bag

Whilst leather bags are great and all, there’s just something very un-summery about them. The material is pretty heavy and doesn’t cope with hot weather very well. Canvas, on the other hand, is a lighter material and copes much better in the sun. If you’ve been trying to complete a couple of looks, then look no further this Penfield oxon bag.

More bags, this time they’re from TANNER. Cut, sewn and handstitched from single hides, the messengers are constructed to be ‘functionally sound, utilitarian, and durable’. So rather good then. Since they’re handmade from scratch, custom adjustments can be made for pocket sizes or stitch colour. Of course, all the fun in owning a bag like this is watching the leather mature over time – well worth the investment.

Comme Des Garcons x Chromehearts

Whilst collaborations are pretty standard,
it’s still interesting to hear of a Comme
Des Garçons and Chromehearts jewellery collection
. Looking at the
collection, it seems the idea of a CDG and Chromehearts collaboration is a lot
more interesting than the actuality of it. The shirts were almost too boring
for words – apart from the words I just typed – and the jewellery is good but dull.

Dolce and Gabbana Watch

Watches that ask philosophical questions
are the new black/brown/whatever the old thing was. If you’ve ever wanted
a D&G watch but felt they were missing that intangible ‘it’ factor, then
this Dolce
& Gabbana High Security watch
is the timepiece for you. It manages the
amazing feat of asking ‘why not today’ whilst showing the time and the date. All that’s missing is a
free call to a life coach.
