Moleskine Bags — Travelling Collection

Hjkl

From Michael Hsu's April 16, 2011 Wall Street Journal review: "It wasn't long ago that our containers were more open-ended, made to hold anything, rather than specific things. A bag was a bag, rather than a laptop bag. A case for a cellphone held most phones, not just the current generation's. The new line of city-friendly bags introduced in Milan earlier this week by Moleskine—a company best known for its impeccably simple notebooks—is a return to that open-endedness of yesteryear, meeting the needs of the technology-laden professional without writing off mankind's centuries-old relationship with paper.

"The messenger bag, for example, has an interior dividing panel (documents on one side; laptop on the other, perhaps) to which smaller pouches can be attached—perfect for cellphone chargers and notepads. Its cover flap folds to create a loop for quick access to a newspaper (quaint) or an umbrella.

"And keeping with the Moleskine aesthetic, the superfluous has been eliminated, or at least hidden: The plastic buckle used to adjust the length of the shoulder strap is neatly tucked out of view. Not surprisingly, the bags have a lot in common with a blank notebook, that sublime container of possibility, proving yet again that the empty is infinitely more useful than the prescribed."
