A brand-new bag has its appeal, but there’s nothing better than the warm familiarity of one you’ve broken in and had for years—which is why we design our leather bags to last forever. But like any long-term love affair, a little TLC is required, so we asked our in-house leather experts for advice.
In keeping with the creative spirit of Art Basel Miami Beach’s 12th annual fair, we joined up with online gallery Paddle8 and asked three of our favorite up-and-coming artists to put their signature styles on our signature Transport Tote. The result is a collection of completely unique leather totes-as-canvases that are so inspired you might want to hang them on your wall—and while we wouldn’t blame you for the inclination, we recommend wearing them instead. (No plane ticket? No problem. Our one-of-a-kind bags are available online here, in addition to our Miami store; details on the launch event below.) The three artists—New Yorkers, all—were putting the finishing touches on their totes when we popped by their studios last week. Click through to meet the creators.
Good news: It’s finally warm enough for those upstate jaunts and coastal road trips you’ve been dreaming about. Even better? The beloved bag you’ll need for all of ’em is now back in stock. Cleanly cut in different shades of buttery leather, it’s bound to look even better as you wear it in. Which is good, considering how many summertime adventures you have ahead.
Get it now before it takes a summer holiday of its own.
