Jil Sander Spring Summer 2009

These bags belong to Jil Sander's spring summer 2009 collection. They are also available to buy from oki-ni, the small 'show bag' is a whopping £459, and its only made from canvas to boot!

The angled front pocket is a signature twist, a nice quirky touch for a mans bag. Details such as the asymmetric buckle on the handle strap works both for adjusting the length of the bag but also to add a touch of metal detailing.

Shoppers are definitely becoming more of a unisex bag shape which we have been seeing all over the place on the catwalks but i'm still waiting with baited breath to see them start to be worn by straight men on the street.

I'm not so sure about the three angled pockets but its a simple yet effective design feature that in Jil Sander style is paired down and elegant.

Influenced by the lightweight canvas shopper, it will take off soon, probably by this summer, men out there you will find that this bag can fit a surprising amout of crap inside.

This much more commercial courier / satchel style take-down works wonders especially in that electric blue. Wouldn't it be nice if it didn't have to cost £459 though?
