It’s time for another roundup of my favorite man bags, the ones that have recently inspired me. Not only to do some shopping for the men in my life, but to get in touch with my tomboy side. Minimal and functional, sensible and stylish: they’re all about simplicity.
Ahhh, London, home of the Sex Pistols, Vivienne Westwood, Tilda Swinton, and the British Monarchy alike. I can always count on London to bring the unique and creative (if at times wacky) to Fashion Month. Not to mention the eclectic. Bags out of the Spring 2014 collections ran the gamut from the immaculately structured and ladylike (Mark Cross’ Grace box bag) to the whimsically furry, fluffy, and appliquéd (à la Burberry Prorsum).

Alessandra Ambrosio carried her Mulberry Beige Mini Alexa Bag while out and about recently in Santa Monica. This leather messenger has a chic textured scale pattern and rose gold-tone hardware giving it just a hint of color. This is a perfect bag for running errands as it holds all your goodies but won’t slow you […]
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is ready for summer. With a pale washed jacket and aviators, the Brit beauty transformed into a classic California girl, but one accessory was still distinctly English – her giraffe haircalf Mulberry Del Rey (at Mulberry for $4,200). Even with its timeless shape, this bag has a wild side, just like its inspiration […]
