When you step off the ferry at Fire Island, or hand the keys to the porter in Montauk, your weekend bag should be casual, yet elegant. Sporty, yet refined.
It should declaim “No gym clothes were displaced in the packing of this bag.”
Nailing all three with aplomb: new luxury bag collection Fairchild Baldwin, peddling handsome totes, duffels and rucksacks that’ll turn heads during your gallivanting.
Fairchild Baldwin’s helmed by a former Michael Kors PR director and the daughter of W Magazine founder John Fairchild — a tony pedigree for tony, Italian-made carryalls that’ll look at home from Sag Harbor to St. Barth's.
The Bobby Duffel comes in three different constructions: woven Italian cotton, vibrantly dyed brushed wool and supple leather, all with leather trim and nickel hardware.
Those feeling particularly jaunty may even opt for a white iguana-stamped number – you’re on vacation, after all.
Shorter trips are better serviced by the Marcella Grande: lightweight cotton with a slick fold-down leather closure and zippered interior compartments for all your electronic gimcracks.
Also: stylish totes and rucksacks, plus a full complement of bags for the lady.
Because no man should travel alone.
