Imagination is in the bag

FEB 27, 2019

Travel light, move fast and have fun

These bags are for men on the move, stirring the imagination while serving the very practical purpose of carrying everything we need as we dash around town in this Year of Play. We love that, while these bags are designed for functionality, they are bold and expressive. Here is our guide to the best bags for A Year of Play, and how to carry them.

Fendi’s drawstring bag


A functional essential from fendi is aimed straight at the style-conscious urbanite. This shoulder bag is ideal for when you need to keep your essentials within easy reach.

This backpack looks equally at home at the gym, on the way to the office, or in the overhead locker in business-class. It is, after all, a bag for a man who means business, but who thrives on informality and playfulness.

Dior’s iconic bee logo has been playfully revamped by Brooklyn-based street artist KAWS for this belt bag. It’s perfect for those who want to keep their hands free to express themselves freely while on the go.

A stylish man knows how to hold himself, but how does he hold his bag?

We love satchels, they can be swung over a shoulder or carried low and are versatile enough for everyday use or, if you travel light, they can accommodate everything you need for for an overnight trip. This piece by Balmain is both rugged and elegant, while Kenzo’s clutch bag is characteristically attention-grabbing.

These backpacks by Louis Vuitton and Balmain display a daring flash of colour while referencing the shape of utilitarian outdoor gear.

Fendi’s belt bags are slick and functional

Belt bags used to be something that would only be worn with a tracksuit, but these bags from Fendi look stylish whether they’re combined with a sharp jacket or a comfortable overcoat.
