Skinbag

November 14, 2006

skinbagskinbag

The pictures that you are seeing here are of a laptop bag made from synthetic human skin. A little creepy, a little cool. I’m not sure I would want to own one of these, unless I could touch and feel it to make sure it isn’t so human. Buying a cowhide bag/product isn’t so bad because well, it’s not so cowlike. This bag goes for 500 euro on skinbag.com but you have to be able to read French.

LowePro’s 300AW sling camera bag

I’m not normally a fan of slings but LowePro has got it right. Due out in 2007, this bag is very well designed. And the best feature is that you can access the camera, while you are still wearing the bag, through the side opening. If you are wearing it on your back, there is a quickpull strap which loosens and you slide the bag to your side or front and pull out the camera. This cannot be done with two strap backpacks.  It seems like everytime I have a camera and it’s packed away so safetly on my back it becomes so much of a pain to stop, take off the backpack, pull out camera, and it makes the process just a little more frustruating. With this bag it’s pull out the camera while still walking, pause and take the picture. Done. So easy, and the camera is still very protected. $124.99

New York City in a bag

I couldn’t resist. At least it comes in a bag, but this is a pretty cool toy for kids.

As irresistible to adults as it is to children, MUJI’s New York in a Bag comes with nine wooden city structures and six wooden cars. Included are New York City icons such as the Chrysler Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Guggenheim Museum, and MoMA’s original 1939 building . The wood is from sustainable forests. Recommended for ages 4 and up.

From the MoMA online store $14.

Billboard Messenger Diaper Bag

November 2, 2006

billboard diaper messenger bag

This bag does not look like a diaper bag. This bag looks awesome! And it is awesome:

This messenger diaper bag not only has a front flap composed of recycled billboard material – hand selected by various artists and designers – it also has an uncanny knowledge of how to make life easier for dads. The easy-access wipes window and pockets for diapers, snacks, lotions and toys are separated for cleanliness from the changing pad – concealed in the back pocket. Handy side pockets keep bottles at the ready, while the front flap quickly detaches to hang the bag over stroller handles. It can be worn on both the right and left, and it�s designed so Dad can feed and change baby without setting the bag down. Bag imported. Billboard made in Denver, CO.

It is made of vinyl, $129 at Uncommon Goods.
