I don't know about you, but the more we're forced into this kind of perpetual, structured lockdown existence, the more I dial up the fashion stakes. I think nothing of sitting around the house in 4 layers and a fashion bucket hat. This is why we're here together, isn't it? Our shared love of accessories?
Anyway, lately I've been really hammering the way you can make a humble shopping accoutrement look like high fashion. It's what I believe is possible when it comes to style. Too much is never enough and it doesn't have to be expensive to be covetable. Let's take a look at the latest from Run To Paradise.
Here my Leo models the Naomi tote, the little sister to the Florence. The grey marle colour way gives it that Melbourne grit, and the natural colourway keeps it closer to the beach side. Added bits and bobs include the small bandana and our bespoke luggage tags, which I can customise especially for you.
The 'Florence' tote takes on a new energy when she comes in dark and heavy. Given that her namesake was a strong and memorable personality, this won't surprise anyone. It suddenly becomes worthy of the quintessential Melbourne black clique and suddenly more men become interested in sporting a man bag with island panache. And why not? I'm teaching my boys to take a bag with them, without it being more than a bag you take to market and not the suggestion of anything else.
