Autumn/Winter 11 saw the return of the mighty manbag – but not as we know it. Oozing masculinity, the new versions are worn in various ways and carried with an addictive venom, most prominently at Ports 1961 styled by i-D contributor Patti Wilson. Wilson strapped bags by a leash to the bicep of models as they strolled down the catwalk. An interesting and exciting progression in what was a very considered fashion week. And beyond, there are a myriad of options. Get ready to choose your weapon: it’s man bags at dawn.
