Whether it's a canvas tote or Givenchy, a day bag you love is essential. It doesn't have to be a fashion It bag of the season, either.
I believe I've got the best of both worlds - a modern man with old fashioned values. I'm happy to be a house husband but won't let my wife carry her own bag.
There's something to be said for a disregard of fashion, but it has to be a carefully curated disregard. It works best, I think, on someone under 18. After the age of, say, 40, you can end up looking like a bag lady.
If I could be reincarnated as a fashion accessory, it would be a shopping bag.
I carry the Sun in a Golden Cup, the Moon in a Silver Bag.
Fashion fades, only style remains the same.
