The Summer Bag

Give me a sunny New York day and I’ll show up at McCarren Park in my summer pastels, raffia shoes, and this Dries Van Noten bag for a lazy afternoon of frisbee, or people-watching whilst rolling around the park’s dry, balding lawns.  It’s the perfect size for a DSLR, some nibbles, and a flask.  It isn’t quite a tote, nor is it a full-fledged briefcase, and the stripes are dyed and textured in a way that’s vaguely basket-like, and somewhat like pieced snakeskin.  The bag is ambiguously beautiful.

I like that the handles are adjustable, they can be lengthened enough for the bag to be carried on the shoulder.  (I have proportion issues with carrying a bag briefcase-style with my skimpy-loose summer everyday clothes.)  I can already smell fresh leather and sun-baked Williamsburger.  Summer and Summer Bag, please come to me soon.

    The adjustable straps will really be useful considering I too have proportion issues that make me look like bringing a shopper bag instead of a briefcase. I prefer having a tote bag with generous pockets to easily hide and pull out those loose change when commuting.
