I have always liked J.Crew’s collections. They are trendy yet simple; unique, yet functional. On top of that, the products are reasonably priced. I especially like the brand’s new Campo collection. The collection features earth-toned bags that are very modern, and yet they have this classic feel to them.
My favorite from the Campos collection is the messenger bag. It is made of smooth oiled leather with gold-tone hardware. The oil allows the leather to practically repair itself. According to the website, this means light scratches will work themselves out with wear. Or you can opt to buff out the light surface scratches with a soft cotton cloth. The bag has an adjustable shoulder strap, hidden magnetic closure underneath the fold-over flap. It has a wide front-wall pocket under the flap, and an interior front-well split-patch cell pocket, center zip divider pocket, back-wall zip pocket to store all your gadgets and other stuff. Inside, the bad is lined with twill lining.
The bags dimensions are: 12 1/2"H x 12"W x 4 3/8"D. The shoulder strap can be adjusted up to 22". This bag will go perfectly with a dressed-down ensemble. What I love most with this bag is that it is the type that would age well. Its unique color depth finish and [atina ensures that the bag’s appearance will improve with wear.
The Campo messenger bag is available at J.Crew’s online store for only $350.
