Week In Review ~ 23 March
Welcome to the weekend and the Week In Review, the perfect opportunity to sit back, relax and scope out an upcoming carry collection, some sweet carry candy, a sleek daypack and a minimalist wallet…
Shining the light on upcoming carry
Haerfest is not afraid to get creative with materials and looks, as evidenced by their upcoming Collection E. The collection incorporates translucent PVC, reflective leather and textured canvas and takes inspiration from the 1960s Light and Space art movement and minimalist sculptor De Wain Valentine. The collection includes a backpack, duffel, book sleeve, clutch and card sleeve and will be available mid-2013.
When it comes to versatility the Hemingway carryall has you covered in a variety of situations. Whether you’re heading to your local market or off on a spur-of-the-moment weekend away, it’s got loads of grab-and-go functionality. Designed by theMADLY, the carryall is constructed out of vegetable-tanned leather with a YKK zip, adjustable shoulder straps and a split pocket in the interior.
Expanding on the daypack
Seeking a slim daypack? The MONO Civilian Expander pack may be just the sort of thing you’re looking for. The backpack can accommodate up to a 15-inch MacBook Pro thanks to the internal laptop sleeve, keys can be connected to the interior key clip and there is an interior and exterior pocket for extra organization. The pack can be expanded if you need a bit more space and the Hypalon rubber bottom helps to protect the pack against wear and tear.
Sleek carry for slipping in your pocket
Vvego offers up some clean craft with their Vvault wallet, a nifty bit of pocket carry that can store up to six cards, with an optional money clip free of charge if you want to keep bills separate from the cards. The wallet is handmade out of black, natural or brown leather with a choice of five lining colors.
DIY leather molding
Fancy a bit of DIY leather molding but not sure where to begin? No need to worry, just check out the second post in our Wilboro series where brand founder Will Ficner provides a guide on how to mold leather for his Victory Case (which you can apply to your own carry hack for some DIY awesomeness). If attempting the molding yourself doesn’t appeal, the post is still a great read for discovering what goes on behind the scenes in creating molded leather carry pieces.
