I get ideas about what’s essential when packing my suitcase – Diane von Furstenberg
Long gone are the days when for a weekend away a few T shirts and change of underwear were thrown in a bag with not much thought for what was actually practical or needed, 2021 are different times, people think more about no just what they may need but also the essentials of packing for a weekend away. One of the first things to consider is the bag itself that will be used for the weekend away. Questions need to be asked such as; Is it going to hold everything I need? Is it going to be sturdy enough? Will it look good? Does it suit my style?
Once these questions are answered, thoughts about what you may be doing need to be taken into consideration and what to take need to be decided on. The modern man is well groomed these days and thought is given to what may be needed for the practicalities of say, beach walks but also thought is given to what can be worn in the evening that is diverse enough to be classed as smart or casual for wherever you may end up dining, whether it be at the Fish Market or one of Whitstable’s Michelin starred restaurants. Toiletries are thought about, the essentials such as shampoo, shower gels and moisturisers are packed without hesitation along with personal grooming products such as, hair gel, hair spray, make up, make up removers etc.
Made from full grain cow leather, with a volume of 35 litres and equipped with a detachable non-slip shoulder strip, this weekend bag is perfect for fitting everything you could possibly need for your sea-side adventure including all the extras you pick up during your stay.
And if you were wanting to make your bag more personal to you, here at Vintage Child you can add one of our name tags to your bag with your chosen initials indented in.
