Bottega Veneta Gardena Bag

Below: Hands free bag option... Messenger bag does the trick as well as backpacks and looks way more adult than college kid. And Bottega Veneta's Gardena Bag from Fall Winter 2014 collection is handsome and luxurious all at the same time:-) LOVE!

Bottega Veneta Fall Winter 2014 Gardena Bag

Looking for a messenger bag? Yes, hands free commuting is the best feeling in the world. So go against the flow of the backpack trend, opt for a messenger bag instead. Look less college kid and more grown up style. If you think you are lacking any attractive options, fret not... How about Bottega Veneta’s new Gardena Bag to convince you?:-) I know I am sold.

Featuring subtle intrecciato leaf accents on the buckle straps... the bag oozes BV signature without screaming it in your face. Handsome styling in the form of leather piping with iconic brunito-finish metal hardware...  all adds to the masculine appeal. Of course, functionality ranks top on the design... 2 external front pockets under the flap closure, generous sized compartment with smartphone sleeve means you carry aplenty and yet stay organised.

Comes in a full buffalo leather version (USD3100), or pony haircalf/leather combo (USD3520). But my favourite has to be the light-weight Intrecciolusion print nylon and leather version (USD1700).

Montblanc Extreme Collection

NEW! Montblanc Extreme Leather Collection And Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC

The increasing demands of our fast-paced city life has inspired Montblanc to create a new range of leather goods that combines both ancestral craftsmanship with modern high performance. If you are looking for a sharp and hard-wearing range of leather bags and accessories to take you through your daily urban adventure, then Montblanc’s NEW Extreme Collection is perfect for you!

When I first laid my eyes on the press imagery, my first impression for the Extreme Collection is that they seemed to me like F1 cars but in the luxury leather goods context.

The innovative woven carbon structure pattern in a subtle matte and shiny finish pushes beyond expectations of what innovative techniques can be achieved with calf leathers. Montblanc has done amazing to create a unique leather pattern that not only looked appealing but is also hardwearing with abrasion resistant, water and heat repellant capabilities. All thanks to a unique dressing and finishing technique that provide every piece with additional protection against the elements. Truly befitting the inspiration behind the collection, the Montblanc Extreme Collection pushes the boundaries of technical innovation to achieve new heights in durability and performance.

Other noteworthy details include hardware made of light weighted black anodized aluminium, carefully selected Italian cowhide linings and all tastefully branded with a classic Montblanc emblem featured in the centre of a contemporary black ring.

Take your pick from the extensive range in the collection; from Single Gusset Briefcase, Document Case, Messenger Bag, Rucksack, Tote Bag, Envelope Bag, North South Bag, Clutch Bag to small leather goods of tablet cases (suited for Samsung and Apple), Samsung Note 4 phone covers, wallets and card cases.

Below: For the 10th Anniversary of Montblanc's Timewalker Collection... this new Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC definitely sets the benchmark for the future generations of the Timewalker timepieces! Read on to find out why...

But the creme de la creme of the extreme collection has to be the new Montblanc TimeWalker Extreme Chronograph DLC. At this 10th anniversary of the Timewalker collection, Montblanc launches a new version of this fan favourite timepiece with a “DLC” (for “diamond-like carbon” material) treatment to ensure the utmost toughness of the stainless steel case’s surface. Miniscule glass spherules are blasted under high pressure to give the steel a microscopic texture to which the DLC coating can almost inseparably adhere, thus producing a fine matte finish on the surface. The wrist strap is a technological marvel too with its black “Vulcarboné” cautchouc construction that is highly resistant to breakage, abrasion, water, and fire. And these are just some of the many hi-tech innovations that is imbued onto the manufacturing and design of this amazing timepiece. In short, I am a huge fan for its ultra functionality and masculine styling. Definitely suited for the discerning individual who can both rough it out in an actual jungle or the fast paced concrete cityscapes in any part of the world.

The Montblanc Extreme Collection will be available in stores come September 2014. For further information, visit
