Lexdray Autumn Winter Collection

lexdray-2014-fall-collection-2

Ive been a massive fan of Lexdray for a while and my Boulder Backpack has been permanent fixture on my back for a number of years now. Lexdray updated their robust luggage collection once again for the 2014 winter season. Included in the lineup are three all-new styles, namely the hiking-inspired Mont Blanc backpack, the compact yet functional San Diego pack, and the roomy Beijing duffle for weekend trips. Along with the Ibiza Pack with its staggering array of compartments, the styles have been rendered in a new olive colorway and kitted out with custom heather grey nylon linings. The offerings are, of course, weather-resistant, utilizing premium materials such as ballistic nylon, shock-absorbing fleece and military-grade hardware to protect your essentials. A travel tray completes the selection to help you organize miscellaneous items. Available only in limited runs.lexdray-2014-fall-collection-1 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-4 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-6 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-7 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-9 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-10 lexdray-2014-fall-collection-11

Herschel Supply Co. are back on their grind this season with a familiar, fan favourite design — the Walton duffle bag. This time around, they have opted for an eye-catching two-toned colour design in a red/khaki mixture. The duffle has several key features packed into its design, including two large zip closure external pockets, interior pockets, and detachable shoulder strap. But my standout favourite detail is the external shoe compartment. We’ve all been in that situation travelling where even with shoe bags, you just don’t feel comfortable packing them next to your clothing. Available from their website and no doubt every Urban Outfitters in the world.

Ally Capellino Freddie St Holdall

UK designer Ally Capellino has been in the fashion business since the 1980s and holds clear goals when it comes to creating a bag. As her site states, the ideal specimen should be “timeless, but never boring” and “made from beautiful durable leathers and fabrics that only improve with age.” Personally I couldn’t agree more with this philosophy and feel her mantra shines through particularly well in the Freddie St. Holdall.  Better than the flowery alternative your better half would prefer to lug to the beach, its nautical themed washed cotton stripes are perfect for summer escapades where relaxing is involved. Details like a soft leather base and tan bridle leather buckled straps also provide some welcome manliness to the piece as well as durability. All that’s left to add on your end is a bottle of sunscreen, a couple of beach towels, your pad and a good read.
