Martin Margiela Leather Bags

I’ve always been a fan of dual purpose bags that can pull its weight in both casual and professional attire. Why? Because it might be a tad difficult to defend your sexual orientation when visiting lady friends notice your bag collection dwarfing theirs. All jokes aside, the truth is I’m a huge fan of practical style and I detest the effort it takes to sort my stuff and change bags; Most importantly, it saves serious money for serious watches.

Line 11 Leather Bag

From Martin Margiela Line 11, replica (hell if I know why they called it a replica) shoulder bag with internal pockets. With retro fever going around lately, the vintage-look soft leather will definitely be head turning, not to mention as time passes, the distress look and wear will only add to the character of this satchel [Available at Aloha Rag]. Or if you prefer a leather bag of a more “landscape” nature, you could go for this:

Soft, supple, luxurious, this holdall from Maison Martin Margiela (apparently Martin Margiela has left his own design house) is fully constructed from calf leather. The simple elegance of the bag lends to the classic nature of this holdall, its construction almost looks like a doctor’s bag but the real attractiveness is really the uncomplicated design that allows the leather shine through. The subtle Margiela quad stitch logo only serves to augment and accentuate this stunning all purpose bag. [Available at Oki-ni]

Caveat: These are among the more expensive bags (close to USD1000) I’ve recommended but given that these leather beauties will look better with age, you could conceivably make these luxe investments.
