Man Bags

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-2017-Mens-Bags-14

For most large brands, men’s bags are something of and afterthought. If a satchel or tote design works well in the women’s line, it gets simplified, enlarged and made more neutral in order to appeal to dudes, and that’s about as far as most brands go when it comes to innovative design for their male fanbases.

No matter your gender, Coach’s men’s bags are a collection worth paying attention to, and that’s especially true when the brand reaches out to one of its favorite artists for a collaboration. Earlier today, Coach debuted its Men’s Spring 2017 1941 collection, and for a very limited time, you can buy a selection of the bags, accessories and ready-to-wear straight off the runway, including many pieces hand-customized by celebrated Los Angeles-based artist Gary Baseman.

Father’s Day is this weekend, which means it’s time to start thinking about what to get for your dad, husband or any of the other dads in your life. As a broad demographic group, dads aren’t known to be the most stylish people among us, but even if not all of them are great at picking their own ties, most appreciate something nice when it’s put in front of them.

Louis Vuitton is in an interesting spot right now. Even though the brand has long wanted to put more of an emphasis on its leather goods and deflect a bit of attention from its iconic monogram and Damier canvases, monograms are gaining popularity, and now it has to find a way to both stoke its leather business and capitalize on a conflicting trend in which it already fits perfectly.

Although our primary interest lies with women’s bags, we’ve been keeping our eyes on the Spring 2016 men’s shows currently taking place in Europe, just in case anything particularly worthy of attention pops up. That’s how we came across the Helen Anthony Castle Bags, one of which you can see above.

You can’t really blame us for concentrating almost entirely on women’s bags; they have, for PurseBlog’s entire existence, been much more aesthetically interesting than those made for men. The male-focused accessories market is starting to expand a bit, though, and it’s a great time to be a man in the market for a new bag.

It’s always Fashion Week somewhere. Resort shows are barely done, but last week, the menswear world was traversing Europe, debuting Spring 2016 styles left and right. Most men’s shows don’t put much of an emphasis on accessories, but there is one very notable exception: Louis Vuitton.

Your dad or husband might not exactly be a clothes horse, but in my experience, few men are immune to the charms of something nice once they have it. That makes Father’s Day (this Sunday–don’t forget!) the perfect opportunity to shine up someone’s wardrobe a little bit, and because the menswear market has expanded so much over the past few years, there are plenty of ways to do it, from simple and subtle to expensive and grand.

Louis-Vuitton-Fall-2015-Menswear-Bags-5

While we all sit under a blizzard in New York, a lot has been happening in Paris. Couture shows just started, and immediately before them, the world’s biggest menswear brands opened the Fall 2015 show season.

Gifts for Men 2014

When you’re used to shopping for women’s fashion, buying a gift for your dad, brother, spouse or male friends can be a bit…deflating. Things are getting better in men’s fashion, but the colors, prints, materials and fabrications are still much more limited than those you’ll find for women.
