WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie 'O'Hare' Leather Shopper Tote In Cognac

If you have been searching for a reasonably priced leather bag, roomy and understated with timeless appeal... look no further than Canadian travel accessories brand, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie.

Founded by TWINS Messrs Dexter and Byron Peart in Montreal in 2006, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie specialises in bags and accessories, which takes inspirations from the bygone era of elegant travel. Referencing back to mid-century architecture and furniture, the twins created quality timeless pieces that lasts in looks and functionality. Discreetly branded yet distinctive with thoughtful signature detail, that of a bi-colour gold and silver zipper, speak volumes of the designers' understated high taste. Each WANT bag is also affectionately named after a different international airport, further reinforcing the brand's travel roots.

I am now head over heels for this Cognac colour 'O'hare' Shopper Tote. I already own the tote in navy organic cotton (which boast a generous size and savvy design) as part of their tie-up with UK luxury swimwear brand, Orlebar Brown. The above pic from the recent NY Fashion Week SS2012 affirms my want as does Nick Wooster toting the bag a while ago.

Now available at SSENSE for USD795! (More pics on my facebook fanpage.)
