We’ve featured Austrian label hard graft here in the past as they’ve been able to consistently deliver some well-made product that’s extremely functional to boot. Their 2Unfold multi-purpose laptop bag first came to life back in 2007 and since then has been offered up in a few different finishes, the latest being this black shell. As always, it’s handmade by their friends in their small family-run workshop in Italy.
Killspencer has released their Weekender 2.0 in a black vegetable tanned leather shell that looks downright stunning. It features military spec webbing that can hold up to 4,000 lb. and comes with a premium webbing shoulder strap with leather and suede detailing. There’s an interior padded laptop compartment which fits upto a 15″ MacBook Pro and even has a waterproof zipper pocket for the iPad 2. The thought to detail really shows throughout as the exterior has a few pockets which can fit large Moleskine notebooks.
The super large backpack by Martin Keehn is shown here in a navy stripe cotton canvas shell that’s limited in numbers and handmade right here in New York City. Top features include soft adjustable padded straps and a leather “u” shaped patch on the back.
The Novel duffel bag from Herschel Supply Co. has been out for quite sometime now but they just unveiled this nylon shell in both an army green and charcoal finish. It’s limited in numbers and features a separate shoe compartment and padded shoulder strap. The bag’s lined with Herschel’s Custom Fabric and is honestly a great weekend bag if you’re on a budget (and even if you’re not). I personally have it in black with tan leather detailing and the selling points for me were its simplistic design and functionality.
If you’re making your way to some sand this weekend, then we can’t think of a better bag to take along for the ride. This duck bag from LVC is made of selvedge ‘duck’ canvas and features western belt strap handles and lined with two interior pockets. It’s got plenty of space for just about everything you’ll need and then some.
With Memorial Day Weekend here, we’re already looking to pack our bags and getaway but that’s really just a figment of our imagination. Trips will come though and when they do, this trolley from Mulberry will be one companion I’d personally love to take along for the journey. It features pebbled grey-green leather with contrasting smooth cognac leather trimmings. This piece of luggage is fitted with leather carry handles at top and single side and features an extendable pull-along handle to keep it rolling on two wheels when it’s time to spring to the festivities.
We recently had the opportunity to get a closer look at Lexdray — a unique line of bags and cases all of which are inspired by Japanese craftsmanship and modern functionality. Lexdray founder Alex Drayer delivers some fine details with this product. Every pocket on every bag has been measured to hold specific items and every shoulder strap has been designed for total comfort. Aesthetically, the current offerings come in an all-black shell and are limited to 550 pieces per style, with each bag being individually numbered as well.
The collection will be carried at Reed Space in NYC, Colette in Paris, Union in LA , The Darkside Initiative in SF and Concepts in Boston.
Austrian travel goods maker Hard Graft has release these leather sleeves for the Apple iPad and MacBook. This piece is made from super soft premium leather and lined with rich British woven wool. Other details include an over-sized flap and double snap closure. The premium vegetable tanned leather comes in a fine cognac finish and is handmade in Italy.
