Aimé Leon Dore x Frank Clegg

ald.jpg

After debuting their pre-fall collection, Aimé Leon Dore presents a collaboration with Massachusetts-based leathermaker Frank Clegg. The collection will feature two bags: a tote and a backpack with styling inspired by the line's clean styling.

Our favorite bag is the Travel Pack with its simplistic yet luxurious look that perfectly combines canvas and tan leather. The canvas is a heavy-duty 22oz material and the tan leather is tumbled and vegetable-tanned. It also had dedicated sleeves for a MacBook and iPad mini and a spacious main compartment.

$400, Aime Leon Dore

Incase Icon Sleeve with TENSAERLITE

Many of us have owned an Incase sleeve or two and while they were great for protecting your device from scratches and slight bumps, they weren't designed from the ground up for impact protection. That all changes with a big update to their signature sleeve, the Icon with TENSAERLITE.

TENSAERLITE is a impact absorbing material that has been built into a lightweight bumper that frames the sleeve to protect your tablet or laptop from drops. They've also made it easier to access your device with a magnetic snap closure.

$59-$69, Incase

Haerfest Camo Shell Backpacks

For a pattern that's supposed to keep you hidden from view, many fashion brands treat camo like oversized, overdone, and overstated branding. Haerfest keeps it subtle with their Shell Backpack styles that uses camo quite tastefully.

The camo treatment wraps around the front and rear of the bag in a dark shadowy blue or an all-black pattern. Both have matching black or dark navy cowhide with a fully-lined interior, contrasting brass hardware, leather shoulder straps, and a low-profile front pocket design.

Oppermann Goswell

This fall, Oppermann London relaunches its luxury accessory brand with an online-only model and of course, a brand new e-commerce shop to match. The collection is inspired by Swedish minimalism and London style and looks to three core tenets when designing their bags: functionality, simplicity, and beauty.

That design language translates perfectly to their latest bag, the Goswell. The Goswell is free of any excessive details or features, just clean panels of beautifully finished vegetable-tanned leather from Santa Croce, Italy. The country is also the source for its zippers and lining and the button hardware is from Germany. Inside there's adequate space for documents and a 13" laptop and they've even gone as far as to brush and polish each tooth in the zipper so there are no sharp edges to scratch your goods.

$332, Opperman

Winter Session x CampWell Log Tote

We're not sure how many of you will actually get any real use out of a Log Tote, but if you've been seeking a better way to haul firewood this tote from Winter Session and CampWell could not be more perfect.

Realistically we like the idea of using their Log Tote for beach days or BBQs and when you're ready to head into the woods, this should more than deliver. The tote is made from a strong 18oz canvas with vegetable-tanned leather handles that should hold up exceptionally well over time. The tote comes in natural waxed grey canvas or unwaxed natural canvas and each tote is handmade in Denver, Colorado.

$85, Winter Session

Paul Smith Blankets

It can get a bit cold up there in the friendly skies and it's always a bit of a crapshoot when dealing with airplane blankets. Avoid them or not? We tend to go with the former and bring our own. Even those First/Business class blankets may have questionable origins.

Paul Smith's answer to all this is an ultra luxe cashmere blanket that'll have you feeling like you're in First Class no matter what cabin you're in. It also comes with a convenient leather case to keep it all nice and tidy and ready to go for your next destination.

$750, Paul Smith

There's just something about nautical goods that adds a certain charm to things. Case in point, Damasquina's beautiful wallets and keychains. A little blue and a beautiful anchor is all it took to get our attention.

From the hand-braided leather keychains with brass hardware to the wallets that are made in vintage blue leather, the designs center around timeless, rustic designs and sturdy leather construction.
