I was recently wandering around Chelsea Markets in the East Village, and stumbled across “Artists & Fleas Pop-Up Shop“. If you guys live nearby, I definitely recommend checking it out (It goes ’till December 17th!). Anyway, one of the designers there especially stuck out to me, with his innovative designs and interesting concepts. I spoke with Tom for a bit, and his shop is known as Sohung Designs. All of the pieces are handmade and originally designed (for both men and women). Take a look at the photos from his collection below:
A recent trend I’ve noticed is the Man Bag. Sure, men have carried around briefcases and backpacks for centuries, but the man bag seems to be replacing both. The reason for this is because bags can carry more than what you can fit in your pockets, a brief case is a bit too formal, and backpacks are rather inconvenient- having to unstrap and stop to get something out is anything but easy. The Man Bag is especially helpful for New York City, where you learn to expect the unexpected. Check out these photos of some awesome Man Purses, er, Bags I snapped recently while wandering around West Village in Manhattan.
