When traveling it is important to be comfortable, but at the same time I like to travel in style. In clothing it means flat shoes, lose clothes; as in this look an oversized coat and of course matching bags.
I recently acquired a Leather Weekend bag Mini and a Leather Backpack Mini from Arsante of Sweden. Besides from being stylish the Arsante Weekend Mini bag is functional and comfortable to carry. In my opinion, a normal size weekend bag most often is to big and heavy when traveling on a shorter journey, thus the size of this one makes it perfect for a weekend, when commuting or on a short business trip. “A must have for the frequent traveller”.
The backpacks have become more and more visible in womenswear in recent years and as I like to keep my valuables close, such as keys, wallet and phone, I prefer to traveling with an additional bag. The Arsante Backpack Mini is perfect for this purpose. It is spacious enough to fit your valuables as well as your travel essentials (ipad, headphones, a book, sunglasses, a bottle of water etc). This bag is designed for the elegant woman on the move. As a mother I’m wearing it almost every weekend to pack my sons ‘Must Haves’ when going out – perfect as it leaves my hands free.
Some features of the bags:
- Full grain Bovine leather from Italy
- Lining in high durability cotton
- Italian polished raccagni zippers
- Original zipper puller from the metal of vintage aircraft
