I'm really loving Marni spring summer 2010 mens bags from the recent Milan men's fashion week. The bags are highly unisex decorated with what i call 'ordered embellishment'. The rows of flat studs lined up on this shopper make it slightly masculine, whilst the rest of the clean lines of the bag make it very understated.
Whenever i look at this image below i keep thinking that the guy is wearing Pjs, popping down to the shops for an asprin or something. Actually he is sporting the latest mini mans clutch which i have been going on about recently.
Small details such as the loose / unstitched down lower panel make this bag interesting despite the fact that its pretty minimalist. The flat zip pocket is enough detail to say 'i care' whislt the luxurious looking tan leather takes me back to the internal office envelopes of the 90s.
Understated feminine is the feeling of this collection. Interesting draw-string closures and soft nappa give the range of bags a very chilled out but expensive feel.
Even this print which looks slightly japanese inspired is summery enough to say beach bag without going to crazy and i have always been a sucker for the outsidey-hangy bags, so this one really gets my vote.
On this one, please note the lowered side zip tab right at the base of this sporty tote. The metal zip with off white zip track and wide opening make this more interesting than you're average holdall.
