Aer Fit Pack | The Gym/Work Bag

posted by on 26/03/2015

Finding a bag that can hold all of your essentials for work along with gym attire that caters to a mobile lifestyle isn’t easy. Everyone hates that one person on the tube with the extra large backpack bursting at the seams that refuses to take it off! The Aer Fit Pack is a kickstarter project proposing a bag that blends clean and understated design with a the functionality required to store and separate everything you need on the go up to 19 litres. I weirdly really like the design for this, I mean sure it’s nothing to write home about –  but the simplicity does it for me. Although with all those compartments, better mind your “essentials” don’t get lost! More of the bag on the flipside.

NOTCH Autumn/ Winter 2015 Lookbook

posted by on 18/03/2015

In previous lookbooks, NOTCH continued to keep it “safe” sticking to the clean-cut, simple style that they’re known for. Inspired by 20th century sculptures and furniture, the British brand have gone down the traditional route for Autumn/ Winter 2015 with the use of materials like corduroy and key pieces like Macs and Bombers. But they’ve managed to retain their modern look and feel where they’ve experimented slightly with patterns and prints more. But again they’ve kept it subtle and in line with their ethos, they continue to exercise the art of clean-cut, well-constructed understated clothing. Check it out after the break.
