So refreshing to see pics of people with style and a good sense of personal expression at Pitti.
While in London I stopped by the Bill Amberg store: Here are a few cool bags and backpacks:
That is a very nice bag. Hard to beat that size and shape.I have a soft spot for the classic monogram canvas LV Carryall. Yea, the whole LV thing has gone kinda crazy in the last 10 years but there is something about the way the natural leather ages over time that appeals to me.
