Here’s what I’ve been crushing on this week. One of my favourite brands, Tod’s recently sent me a picture of their GORGEOUS Double Stripe bags. The Italian brand has named the bag after the double leather stripes that are seen on it. I have always stayed shy of the trend of ‘man bags’, for daily use. I’d much rather use a compact satchel, a messenger bag or, at the risk of sounding plebeian, a stylish backpack. I see myself carrying something like this, though! What I love most about it: its versatility. I see myself carrying it to work, on days that I have to lug heavy files and documents, and I definitely see myself using this as hand baggage during a short break away from the city. Going through the Double Stripe Collection, I discovered weekend bags, a document folio, a satchel with a shoulder strap, a chic briefcase and, my favourite, a messenger. I like the brown and black versions but I LOVE the green, red and blue. I’d pair these bright colours to my classic, dark, office attire. What a statement that would make!
And guys, if you’re looking to indulge yourself in one of these sophisticated masculine accessories, don’t forget to get Tod’s to get your initials monogrammed onto your a leather label.
Bellissimo I say!!!
