Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection

Below: Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection: a brand new leather collection defined by its innovative functionality. With streamlined designs, optimal comfort and smart storage solutions, each piece is thoughtfully crafted to fit in with the lifestyles of those on the go... Love the chiselled edge and metal strip details on each piece, reinforcing the urban appeal of the collection!

Below: The 22 piece collection also include an extensive range of small leather goods with the recognisable and modern chiselled edge detail. All crafted from sleek black Italian leather...

Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection

The year is coming to a close with just 2 months to 2017. So no better time for Montblanc to launch a new collection of leather goods in time for you to reward yourself after a whole year of hardwork. New year = new bags!

The Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection will appeal to guys who wants modern designs combined with optimal comfort and smart storage solution, the modern gentlemen on the go. Each of the 22 piece in the collection is thoughtfully crafted to accompany this driven man, seamlessly from his workplace to the gym, from daily commute to his globe-trotting business endeavours or adventures.

Mirroring the multi-faceted lifestyle of this guy, many pieces in the collection have multiple functions to adapt to the demands of its owner as he transitions from one endeavour to the next. With its retractable handles, the Slim Document Case can serve as either a document case or as a portfolio, while the Tote Bag with its cufflink closure on the sides that allows the shape of the bag to be transformed from a daily workbag to a small duffle.  The Backpack (one of my favourites) is thoughtfully equipped with a side compartment for the storage of a laptop, a dedicated pocket for a phone with see-through holes for headphones, a satellite system, as well as a storm cap to protect the bag from the elements and reflective bands for added safety by night. Furthermore, with a simple and quick adjustment, the backpack can be transformed into a document case.

Also noteworthy, the line features the Montblanc Shield, a special lining added in the internal pockets  that provides protection against unauthorised reading, copying and tampering of personal data contained in the chips embedded in credit cards and passports. So you can travel with peace of mind with these bags and leather accessories.

Made of soft-to-the-touch black Italian leather with a slight waxy matte effect, the high performance collection is the result of the highest level of craftsmanship nurtured at the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence. The collection is also characterised by chiselled edges with a metal strip detail, reinforcing the urban appeal of the designs.

Understated and highly functional, the Montblanc Urban Spirit collection definitely has many reasons to love. I love the compact messenger bag and backpack. These will make perfect companions for work and play while looking sharp and updated.

The Montblanc Urban Spirit Collection is now available at Montblanc boutiques worldwide. For further information, visit www.montblanc.com

Fendi 'Faces' Backpacks For Fall Winter 2016

BelowFendi has a new backpack design this Fall Winter 2016… No I am not referring to the 'Faces' motifs inspired by emojis and emoticons… but the clever design that allows for conventional shoulder carry and cross body sling like a messenger bag! Of course, the kitschy but instagram friendly furry 'faces' version just begs for a good hug:-P
Below: Carry it on your back or sling it like a messenger… all thanks to adjustable shoulder straps that can vary in length to allow for this unique feature!

 Below: It's all about furs for Fendi this Fall Winter 2016 (Fur versions start from £3450)...

Fendi 'Faces' Mens Backpacks  For Fall Winter 2016 

There is a new ‘face’ in town this Fall Winter 2016, thanks to Fendi. Yes, the brand that brought us the quirky and coveted bag bugs has something new and cute to join your bag collection.

The new ‘faces’ collection (Inspired by the millennia generation of emojis and emoticons) cleverly uses hardware to create different face motifs on their new colour block bag designs. Complimented by bold colours, they achieve a very graphic appeal and most importantly, looking exceptionally instagram friendly. And since kitschy is the hot trend now, the more irreverently weird, the more interesting and wallet inducing they are.

However, the one thing that truly appealed to me for Fendi's new fall winter collection are not these surface embellishments. It is one of the very unique backpack design that allows the owner to conventionally wear the backpack on the shoulders and also allow for cross body sling, like a messenger bag. Very cool idea indeed!

Through the clever use of adjustable shoulder straps, the length can be varied for 2 ways to carry. It even becomes the top handle when in shoulder strap mode. A simple idea but highly innovative. I always find backpacks trying at times to retrieve your contents since they can be hard to sling to the front when on your shoulders. So being able to carry it like a messenger when needed (such as rushing up to the bus), the bag instantly becomes more user friendly.

There are many options for this format of the backpacks. Choose from furry ‘Faces’ motif in striking coloured fur or plain leather ones with a detachable clutch/pouch in contrasting colour (reminiscent of the ladies dotcom bag). I also adore the ultra luxurious brown mink version, but only if I am living in a temperate region and will feel so cosy during winter time:-P

Go check out this new backpack! Innovation meets quirky definitely equates a must have in my books:)

Below: If fur is not your thing… then this full leather version (reminiscent of the women's dot com bag) has a contrasting coloured pouch and the same adjustable shoulder straps.(£1860)
