When I look at a bag I’ve never seen before for the first time, the first thing I always try to imagine is where I’d take it. Accessories both need and provide context in various …

Duffel Bags

Every couple of seasons, bag shape trends shift. Remember when everyone carried hobo bags? That was a real thing that happened. Over the past couple of years, everything from ladylike top-handles to small crossbody bags …

I also wish that I had the extra cash to go out and scoop up the Santiago Gonzalez Crocodile Duffel Bag – but would I choose grey or brown? (Ok, I’d choose grey, that wasn’t even difficult.) (more…)
