The duffle bag is a menswear must-have that’s proudly stood the test of time, owing much of its popularity to its inherent versatility. This Monogram Nylon Duffle Bag from Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh is the perfect embodiment of that sentiment, being able to confidently switch between being a weekender, carry-on luggage, a gym bag and more. Of course, Off-White has made sure to leave its own indelible mark on this most classic of wardrobe classics with an all-over monogram motif in a smart, monochromatic tone.

Christian Louboutin Black Loutote Beach Bag
Beach bags often have the misfortune of being considered somewhat of a wardrobe afterthought; for some, merely a last-minute pickup before they set off on their sunny adventures. Well, we think this is a crying shame and if Christian Louboutin’s Loutote Beach Bag is anything to go by, Mr Louboutin does too. With iconic spike embellishments, striking red trimmings and other quintessential features of that trademark Louboutin charm, the Loutote inspires you to take pride in your beach accessories once again. The tough, ripstop nylon shell is more than a match for the often abrasive beachside conditions, ensuring that Loutote is more than just a pretty face.

Valentino Garavani Black VLogo Signature Leather Tote Bag
This VLogo Signature Leather Tote Bag is class and style personified and is pretty much Valentino Garavani as a brand in a nutshell. The supple leather body and antique brass-finished hardware are opulent hallmarks of the maison's uncompromising dedication to craftmanship, a standard that few others can claim to uphold. Whether for business or pleasure, we’ve always maintained that a quality leather bag is an essential wardrobe accessory for the modern man and for our two cents worth, you can hardly do much better than Valentino’s latest offering.

Balenciaga Black Army Space Backpack
Your everyday backpack might offer the convenience of hands-free wearability, but they’re often quitting limiting with regard to how much they can hold. Conversely, the more sizeable traveller’s rucksack can, of course, hold a lot more, but its generally more awkward shape and profile can make it an impractical option for casual use. Balenciaga attempts to circumnavigate these familiar trappings with its featured Army Space Backpack. The reinforced design and surprisingly spacious interiors give you the option to really load up without compromise, all whilst maintaining a relatively sleek and compact profile. It’s the anywhere, anytime bag that you’ve been looking for…
