John Galliano Autumn/winter 2008/9

I am really feeling men's bags at the moment, these bags are hot off John Galliano's autumn/winter 2008/09 catwalks in Paris. They are rough and tough and very masculine. This is a returning trend - the ultra-masculine, coming through both in mens and women's fashion.

The leathers are dry and textured with imperfections. The colours are tough and the cuts of the bag look like they have been made by cavemen. (as do the models)

Raw edges and torn finishes with roughly placed studs and buttons make the look raw and wild.

This elongated messenger looks like it has a sheep skin interior lining worn across the body either at the front or back. The hardware has a hammered brushed finish and looks like it could have come from an old gate.
