In the current issue of Azure, we present a trio of big bags that stylishly suit a range of purposes. Here are five more to satiate your hand luggage fetish.
1. Orkan duffel by Krane
Ken Chow, a graduate of New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology and a protégé of Marc Jacobs, takes inspiration from his childhood days designing Remembrance Day posters. This washed calfskin duffel touts hand-rolled and hand-finished handles with studded detailing. ($840)
2. Chester Wallace by Patrick Long
Comprised of vintage canvas or leather from the U.S. and the U.K., and sealed with a waterproof nylon bottom, this bag named after the designer’s grandfather conveniently holds a six-pack of brew. ($125)
3. Mini Luggage Bag by Céline
As classic as the Hermès Birkin and available in almost as many colours, Phoebe Philo’s latest creation for the fashion house transfers seamlessly from work to play. ($1500)
4. Ruc tote by J. Panther Luggage Co.
Designed by British-born, New York-based Johnny Diamandis, this waxed canvas tote also functions as a shoulder bag or backpack. ($585)
5. Reference laptop sleeve by Freitag
Like Freitag’s ubiquitous messenger bags, this one is made of water-resistant vintage truck tarpaulin. Designed to be a bit sleeker – for ‘medialites and urbanites’ – it holds laptops as big as 15 inches. ($200)
