Leonardo da Vinci once said, “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”.
Often in today's society, the ideas of being “busy” and “in a hurry” go hand in hand. I think we all have those days with hectic work schedules, the never ending to-do list, the need to be in four places at once, and the many other things that can tend to make our lives unorganized, unproductive and over complicated. When we sat down to design The Louis, one of our new messenger bags from The Grand Series, our goal was to create a simple bag that would be useful and helpful in situations like these.
The Louis is handmade from natural cowhide leather and it's lined with a soft grey satin to give the bag a simple and timeless look. While most of our messenger bags have some form of buckle system to ensure the bag stays closed, The Louis relies on a few simple hidden magnets. Once you release the front lap from your hand, it will automatically align and snap shut. Other features include a soft felt laptop sleeve to safely house your laptop and a leather cord strap to keep your cables from becoming a tangled disaster. Another feature that can come in handy is the ability to attach a secondary strap to the back of the bag transforming it into a backpack. It’s because of the true simplicity of The Louis, that is stands out as one of the most sophisticated bags we offer. Whether you commute by car, bus, bike or foot, The Louis was designed to make your life a little more organized, productive and simple.
