The first image that comes to mind when I think of a canteen bag, is of a circular bag with a long strap (like the Olympia Le-Tan Disney Dizzie Bags I wrote about not too long ago.) Like an old fashioned canteen. So when I stumbled upon the Marc by Marc Jacobs Canteen Bag, I just had to share it with you all and see what you guys think.
The MARC by Marc Jacobs Canteen Handbag is made of leather in sort of square-ish shape. The zippered opening zips around three out of the four sides. And the zipper pulls are oversized loops of leather. There is a little top handle strap, along with an adjustable shoulder strap. I think it has all of the elements for a camera bag, not really a canteen bag. Technicalities aside, this is a very good looking bag. I particularly like the version I have pictured. I love the pairing of contrasting colors, light taupe and black here, and the casual style.
