Accessories in menswear are fast becoming some of the most important pieces you can own – and whilst it may be a long time before they are given as much precedent as in womenswear, today it is as much about what you carry as what you wear. Street-style photographers at this year’s London Collections: Men paid particular attention to the finishing details of men’s outfits, with the ‘man-bag’ undoubtedly the most photographed and sought after.
On that note, the latest accessories collection from Santiago Gonzalez is comprised of a variety of bags and wallets that are crafted using only the finest crocodile skins, for the ultimate in men’s luxury. The calling-card of the collection is definitely the black crocodile skin holdall bag, which would not look out of place on the French Riviera or the busy streets of Venice. There is also a briefcase in equally beautiful brown croc skin that also comes in a matching wash bag and wallet.
There is an emphasis placed on style and functionality when travelling, as by all accounts Santiago is himself a very well-heeled man and carries such accessories with him on his travels.
The price tags here are hefty and therefore not for the every man, however some of the lower priced pieces in the collection come in the form of card holders and money clips – providing a nice gift option for your father come father’s day or Christmas. The crocodile cufflink set and box would also make a great gift for a particularly dapper man.
For more than a touch of luxury, look no further than Santiago Gonzalez, available at Mr.Porter.
