Recent events, like a small little royal wedding, have put more British designers on the fashion radar screen. These aren’t new emerging designers either. Some have produced high quality, enduring styles for decades (if not longer). Like Christmas morning, I eagerly watch for these lovelies to become more available to us Yanks, here in the states!
Chapman is one of those rugged, practical beauties the Brits love so much. Handcrafted using natural materials bonded to be waterproof, long-wearing and featuring easy maintenance with simple soap and water. English bridle leather and cotton non-marking webbing provide finishing details.
Perhaps my upcoming trip to Montana has me looking for more outdoorsy styles, but this bag really caught my eye! The FlyFlysher 16 features a large interior pocket with two exterior bellows pockets, exterior slip pocket and adjustable shoulder strap. While the khaki version reminds me a bit too much of a fly fisherman’s bag, the black has a bit more style for my preferences. A cotton canvas body is finished with the hallmark English bridle leather. For just $250.08 from LUISAVIAROMA you can afford to let your inner outdoorsy side come out to play!
