Be it the bag of the season or an investment piece to last a lifetime, #TheOne bag can be hard to choose. That’s why we spent some time with different bloggers around the world, to find out what #TheOne bag is for each of them. Is it a bag for a spectacular evening or the perfect bag for a weekend getaway?
Each of these worldly beings has a different perspective on what the one is for them. We explore their personal choices, how they use #TheOne bag and where they go when using it.
This Maison Margiela backpack is #TheOne because it infuses a rugged and understated luxury with the practicality of a backpack. I call that a win-win! My job is very hands-on so keeping my hands free is important to me. This Margiela backpack is a no-brainer for my on-the-go lifestyle without sacrificing my signature style.
I'm a creature of habit so I usually wear the same backpack until wear-and-tear forces its retirement. While looking for a new bag to sport, I immediately fell in love with the casual, undecorated structure of the backpack - plus, I'm a big fan of the Maison Margiela brand!
Like all my favorite bags, this backpack will become an extension of myself as I navigate that ever delicate balance of work (back-to-back meetings) and play (weekend excursions).
No doubt a man of the last few season thanks to his work at his own brand and with Loewe, JW Anderson’s Pierce bag has become such an iconic bag. I love the classic shape and the added touch of the gold barbell. The leather is luxurious while the gold keeps the look modern and sophisticated. Perfect for dressing up a jeans and t-shirt look or using as a clutch for a date night/girls night out look. Here I’ve teamed my black JW Anderson Pierce bag with a silk striped shirt and ripped jeans for an easy day to night outfit. Perfect for a day in the office or running errands, then out for drinks with the girls. Just add some extra gold jewellery, a pair of heels and a bold red lipstick and I’m ready to go.
My ideal bag is one that's small enough to wear out at night but fits enough of my things to bring around during the day. I also love one with a removable strap so you can create a different look. And this Balenciaga bag accomplishes all of that (plus the neutral blush color is everything!) I wear it almost everyday, I travel with it -- there's really no occasion this bag doesn't work in...which is why I like to think it's #TheOne.
'Stepping into spring always proves sartorially challenging with drastic changes in weather happening almost hourly and of course a change in season brings the inevitable style changes. To ease this transition, I like to phase out my previous seasons clothing by fusing together lasts season’s classics with something new season. In this outfit, I have paired my denim jacket simply with a plain white tee and tan chinos. For such a simple look, accessorising what you are wearing with a bag will totally transform your look, in fact its essential which is why this tote bag is #TheOne for me. Luxurious and versatile, this tote bag from Zanellato Postina is my go to bag from a weekend away to heading to the gym. Choose to buy in black, grey or brown colours and it will suit every outfit making it #TheOne and the perfect all-season, everyday bag that offers style as well as functionality.'
I consider myself lucky. I get to wake up every day and walk to work, but more than that, walk to something that I helped create from the start, something that I love doing. As I walk along the Sydney streets on my way to the office and I couldn't be happier. I’ve always had a passion for design, culture and style and I’ve managed to turn that into my everyday life. I love what I do, and I love my daily commute. My morning walk gives me time to set the mood for the day, think of what I want to achieve, and at the end of the day, the walk home is the perfect way to clear my mind.
Being co-founder of online magazine Man of Many, means that my work practically travels with me on my laptop, in my bag. So for me, the perfect bag for the perfect commute is the Loewe Wide Briefcase. #TheOne. I love the ruggedly textured of the calfskin leather and the bold stainless steel zips, but not only does it look great, it can actually carry my stuff. Being both practical and uber stylish epitomises what “Man of Many” is all about.
'Spring always calls for the retro vibes and romantic mood. This time, I was inspired by Jackie's style but wanted to add a modern twist to my 'vintage look'.
Amongst many others, a big weakness of mine is statement bags. I feel that the look is not finished until you add at least one bright detail to the ensemble. I am a huge fan of Les Petits Joueurs bags, and I absolutely adore how playful and at the same time elegant their bags are, they always remind me that you’re never too old to play with toys. I opted for their iconic 'Love' Lego bag - it looks perfect with most of my casual denim looks, but I also like how it perfectly finishes that retro-inspired outfit and make it truly Parisian.'
