Renowned within the fashion industry for his experimental, somewhat avant garde designs; Rick Owens stays true to form with the washed leather messenger bag, part of his latest autumn/winter 2012 offering.
Playing to the designer’s strengths, the bag is constructed from premium washed leather – a material which he has become world renowned for experimenting with.
Staying true to the signature aesthetic of the brand, both the colour palette and design has been kept minimal, allowing the focus to remain on the structure and silhouette.
The innovative accessory manages to fuse elements from a couple of classic bags styles – such as the backpack and messenger bag – into one sleek design.
Spacious enough to hold all your everyday essentials, the main compartment benefits from a suede lining and integrated pouch pockets to store smaller, more valuable items. If that isn’t enough storage space for you, you’ll be pleased to hear that the bag also comes complete with a detachable zip fastening pouch.
With the inclusion of a long side strap, it means that you can sling this slouchy piece over your shoulder at your convenience, for a casual aesthetic that is versatile enough to adapt to any outfit you throw on.
To get your hands on one, and treat yourself to a piece of luxurious new arm candy, head over to Mr.Porter now.
