Designer luggage brand WANT Les Essentiels have released their Autumn/ Winter 2016 collection, inspired by the concept of ‘Uni.form.ality’. This translated is the ceremony of incorporating a daily uniform that reflects your personal style while embracing functionality.
Throughout the collection we see sharp lines and futuristic materials with clean styles. Classic WANT styles have been recreated in leather, wool, organic cotton and quilt in a range of subdued neutral colours: Blanket Drill, Navy Wool Mélange, Brushed Olive and Navy, Crimson and Gunmetal.
New styles include the well-constructed and compartmentalised Jackson Messenger bag with 13” and 15” laptop space. In addition, the Florio Computer Folio safely protects any 13” or 15” laptop in a lightweight and soft padded case and for the first time, the brand’s iconic Kastrup Backpack is introduced in a larger 15” size.
Fairly new for WANT is the brand’s footwear collection, again inspired by militaristic design and innovation this season. We see the Stewart Desert Boot- a casual, comfortable style in a combination of matte and nubuck leathers. And for winter warmth and performance, the Hopkins Lugged Sneaker along with the Montoro and Montoro High Derby Shoe are equipped with an all-new weather-appropriate tread. Also, the Marshall Chelsea boot debuts this season, as a wardrobe staple available in brushed black or brown leather.
The WANT Les Essentiels Men’s AW16 Collection is available now at WANT Les Essentiels, wantlesessentiels.com and select retailers worldwide.
