Yoshida x Mug Bag collection

mugxyoshida.jpgWhenever you usually see a bag collection there’s a standout bag and some duds. That isn’t the case with this Yoshida and Mug collaboration. All of the colours are wearable and I’d even consider getting the tote version – although they’re still attached to femininity in my mind.

Making a change from all the Japanese stuff I usually post, this collection is available in England – Dover Street market to be specific. Prices start from around £100.


Arlington leather messenger bag

By admin on May 20th, 2008


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.

Another important point to mention is that this bag costs £65, which is a, dare I say it, cheap price for a leather bag. It’s not Primark prices, but you’re unlikely to see a bag of this quality for this price.

– I refuse to call them ‘manbags’ – Although I just did. Damn. They ask five people ranging from Topman’s design director to NME’s editor about what’s in their bags, what make their bag is and how they feel about the term ‘manbag’.

The answers as to what’s in them are relatively the same; books, notebooks, ipods, phones, everything that’s too big for your pockets. The fuss over ‘manbags’ is a silly one. They’re just a replacement for rucksacks – not an example of a new breed of man emerging. The reason they’re popular is because they’re functional and fashionable, with the emphasis on functional. There’s nothing more to it than that.


Moore and Giles Leather Messenger Bag

As you’ll all know, the little details are
what separate good pieces from great ones. Some would say that the devil’s in
the details – but not Brandish, because that phrase doesn’t make sense. A
perfect example of good detailing is this Moore and Giles leather messenger

Whilst from the picture it looks like any
other leather bag – a bit Dunlop even, if you excuse my French – on the inside
it turns into a picture of perfection.
