Gior­gio Ar­mani’s Pri­vate Bag is a func­tional and time­less piece made with top- notch crafts­man­ship

Some may mourn the pass­ing of the days when men could get away with sim­ply stuff­ing their thick wal­lets, mo­bile phones, and a whole bunch of keys into their pants’ pock­ets. We, how­ever, are more than over­joyed that the era of awk­ward bulges are long gone. No amount of hands-free con­ve­nience can be worth the eye­sore of those in­ap­pro­pri­ately lumpy thighs. In­stead of grop­ing blindly through a mass of loose change, keep your be­long­ings within easy reach in the lat­est cre­ation by Gior­gio Ar­mani: the Pri­vate Bag.

Avail­able in an ex­ten­sive range of clas­sic mas­cu­line colours, this lat­est se­ries of busi­ness bags, pro­duced by the promi­nent Ital­ian fash­ion house, is the essence of el­e­gance and un­der­state­ment. De­signed with the needs of the ur­ban man in mind, it caters to the gen­tle­man who is able to be si­mul­ta­ne­ously dy­namic and re­flec­tive, fash­ion­able yet un­pre­ten­tious, al­low­ing him to keep his ev­ery­day essentials at hand as he weaves through the crowd along the bustling city streets.

Apart from be­ing an el­e­gant style state­ment, the Pri­vate Bag also show­cases Gior­gio Ar­mani’s painstak­ing crafts­man­ship. Ev­ery inch of this bag is made with an ex­act­ing eye for de­tail and boasts the lux­u­ri­ous feel of well- made leather goods.

The Pri­vate Bag is dis­tin­guished by the one- cen­time­tre thick dark matte pip­ing that runs along the edges of the ex­clu­sively se­lected tum­bled calf­skin and croc­o­dile leather. This, as well as the thick thread used for the tone- on-tone stitch­ing, not only calls at­ten­tion to the bag’s sim­ple and pre­cise shape, but also adds a sturdy mas­culin­ity to its look. On the in­side, the bag is lined with cot­ton twill in the same dark colour, with plenty of com­part­ments that will keep all your gad­gets well or­gan­ised and eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble, mak­ing the Pri­vate Bag an amaz­ingly func­tional ac­ces­sory.

Those ea­ger to get their hands on this ex­tra­or­di­nary bag will be happy to know that the Pri­vate Bag col­lec­tion will be avail­able this May. Of­fered in the colours of ivory, taupe, warm tan, red, dark green, dark blue, dark brown, and black, it will be re­tail­ing at se­lect Gior­gio Ar­mani bou­tiques as well as the Ar­mani on­line store.
