Buyer’s Guide: 20 Affordable Duffel Bags

And we’re back with the first Buyer’s Guide feature of 2014. After a winter of indulgence, both gastronomically and financially, it’s time to reign ourselves in. There’s nothing more bleak than having to consign ourselves to the rest of the winter without any new purchases, so just make sure that anything you buy is justifiable for successful guilt-free shopping. Accessories are far too often forgotten about but the chances are if you have a brand new duffel bag worthy of your gym gear, it just might make you get out and hit the gym a little bit more often. To make things even easier for you and your budget, we’ve found 20 duffel bags all coming in at around $100, which means there’s not a single one over $200.

A Recap of Capsule Berlin January 2014

Following our recap of Bread and Butter Berlin, we present a glimpse of this season’s Capsule show in Berlin. As one of the industry’s most carefully curated shows, brands such as Tourne de Transmission, Libertine-Libertine and Rascals brought over their goods for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2014 season. Among the collections, we saw plenty of pieces fusing traditional sports materials like mesh with dressier silhouettes while monochromatic color scales look to remain just as strong for next season. As always, the outfits worn by both the attendees and exhibitors provided an even better idea of the types of trends to expect come next year.

Mimosa House by Park + Associates

The design brief for Mimosa House by Park + Associates was to create a double volume living space with four bedrooms, while reusing as much of the existing structure as possible. This translated to a three-dimensional box-like design that replaced the original burnt orange brick house, in materials including dark granite, timber, steel and glass. Making the most of the tropical Singapore weather, all of the rooms open up to the outdoors via glass sliding walls and decks, while the master suite situated on the top offers views of the surrounding neighborhood due to a glass and steel construction. In some areas of the residence, the original burnt orange brick was re-used in memory of the original house.

Y-3 Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Y-3 showed for the first time during Paris Men’s Fashion Week at the Couvent des Cordeliers on Sunday, January 19, 2014. With a mix of men’s and women’s pieces, the playful, optimistic and surreal collection features a range of retro-esque primary colors, over functional, sporty garments. Presented in a black and white setting with neon backdrop, the show Yohji Yamamoto designed offering was a blend of technical and texture, with contrasting hand-drawn graphics and high-shine leathers, all tying back to an overarching superhero theme. Looking towards footwear, we see men’s multi-fabric trainers, Chelsea boots, desert moccasins and tribal-motif high tops. Also of note: the show was attended by Kanye West, who is now also working on his own adidas project.

Saint Laurent Fall 2014 Collection

Once again without any doubt one of the most anticipated collections during Paris Fashion Week, Hedi Slimane presented his Saint Laurent line tonight in the French capitol. While sticking to the look that he created for the fashion house and has established these past seasons, the designs of the 1950s styles included a plethora of interesting English wool fabrics. Furthermore classics, including the varsity and biker jackets, were enhanced with leopard details, studs and other design elements. Overall we spotted a lot of instant classics in the collection. While the line might not seem very approachable at first, we are sure, as usual there will be some fantastic timeless, easy to wear products that will land in stores later this year.

Thom Browne Fall 2014 Collection

Today during Paris Fashion Week, designer Thom Browne presented an altogether surreal take on modern menswear. Known for his theatrical approach to fashion, Fall 2014′s show was no exception with a display of animal masks and massively oversized, if not obese, garments on display across the Parisian runway. Positioned with two distinct sets of garments, the show started with a range of mismatched grey suiting with exposed raw seams, paired with the likes of antler caps and elephant masks, and then transitioned into a blown-up array of blue-toned pieces, most of which were covered in foliage patterns. All in all Thom put on a bizarre, yet fantastic show.
