Because we know many more chapters in this story are to come!!

So we all know that the choice of the perfect Bag to be carried is no longer only in a women’s prerogative. It is well established and agreed when you look at the multibillion dollar industry that defines the bags that men carry today. You power statement of what looks smart and how you carry your essentials to any place is more now a focus than any other accessory that you could possibly have.

Designs, shapes, details are endless! While most brands do focus on the “Laptop bags” I find the new trend of the Messenger designs,  Duffel style bags, even Mens totes as one of the most amazing trends of the market. The classic strap Sling bags are of course patent styles from many years and evolved in time in shapes and colors. Prints, leather, textiles, polymixes….the library of materials are endless. A man’s bag is no longer defined by being made in leather and in the tones of black&grey! The classic Backpack design has overtaken trends as well and seen in high fashion brands on international ramps and a popular street style option.

Having been rather a BAG obsessed man for many years I thought this story as first edition would be an amazing platform to share with you all some of favorites in the collection over time. From brand purchases, instagram connections and street shopping the sources have been endless. So keep an eye out when you’re out and about because the next BAGCESSORY is waiting for you to pick them up. Here is to a fun start for a series of BAG story chapters.

In the Details… To start with a festive print on a Messenger style bag in vibrant pattern Design from INDI POP. Great place to get some fun eclectic prints and designs especially if you’re looking for that Indian Quirk in your wardrobe.

Closing Chapter 1 is this great Leather roll up Backpack , designed in pure calf leather with suede interiors , its great as a laptop bag as well for lighter travel needs. Although not designed for broader luggage carrying must say due to its structure but the same company also has designs for travel. The magic of the roll down details and long buckle straps are actually very quirky and staple in the designs of the brand called Pelle: The Vintage Garage.
