The New Traveler’s Bag

by Eyal de Leeuw | 26.01.13

“A new version of a traveler” is how designer ‪Byron Peart‬ defines contemporary men. ‪Byron and his twin brother Dexter Peart‬ are the founders and designers of the new (and much hyped) brand”WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie” (see filmed interview with them below).
As a developed “version of a traveler” our wanderlust generation is carrying new bags with classic looks, often combining leather and canvas, fitting the urban nature and big enough to carry the various extensions of ourselves.
