Do the Shutterbug
Satchels are quite the hot commodity these days, creating something of a fashion craze for the vintage-inspired accessory. While some designers opt for an “out there” take on the design—with neon-hued and patent leather exteriors, for instance—others stay true to the bag’s stylistic roots.
ONA’s vegetable-tanned leather camera bag elects for the classic look and wears it well. While it looks like a relic from the 1940s, the bag was built to tote around some decidedly modern techie toys. Its roomy body can house an SLR and up to three additional lenses or small camera accessories, while a discreet slit pocket along its back securely nestles an iPad or e-reader. If you’re not an avid shutterbug, simply use it as a everyday purse, durable enough to knock around while giving its leather outer a wonderfully worn look.
With an ethically cultivated, attractive exterior and functional interior, this is one piece you could easily keep around for another half-century without it falling out of style. There’s no need to take a picture for posterity’s sake.
