With their newest collection, Tano‘s gone for a slightly utilitarian, aviator’s knapsack feel, using a thick heavy leather that’s quite a departure from their sheens of the past. I, for one, love this departure, and my favorite product so far is the Tano Return to Roots Crossbody Bag.
The leather is worn, used, but in a way that implies a stylistic ruggedness rather than just, well, a dirty nylon bag that’s been worn far too long. No, this leather had a quiet sophistication and certainly contains in it a hardiness well equipped to carry bunches of pens, electronics, books, and any other widgets necessary.
The utility of the bag goes far beyond looks; foremost, it is a crossbody, so it’s kind enough to allow the wearer to use her arms and hands unobstructed. How sweet. Plus, the extra pouches and pockets in the front ensure that you’ll never lose your Tic-Tacs in the depth of your hobo again. And that alone is a cause for celebration. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $215.
