No matter if they are on trend or not, we’ve always been fans of the waist pack. It’s a useful accessory to carry your valuables on long days around the city or during festivals. The piece comes in many forms and if you pick the wrong one, it simply won’t look right.
We particularly love the WANT’s luxurious take on the utilitarian waist pack. Theirs is a combination of french calf leather and soft Japanese nylon. Additionally, the strap is long enough so you can wear it on the waist or across the body. The finishing details include front and interior zip pockets.

One of our favourite pieces from Lexdray‘s Spring and Summer collection for 2015 is their Dubai case. This particular version has been revised to exhibit more sophistication and professionalism. The end result is a combination of black ballistic nylon with a handsome twill fabric.
What we love about this travel case is that it doubles as a toiletry case and a travel case to hold your day to day essentials. If you plan to use it for your toiletry, the interior is coated with an anti-bacterial lining. The finer details include internal hooks, a water-resistant bottom, and snap feature to lay flat when needed.
