Icon of the holidays at the beginning of the 2000s, the sling bag is back as one of the trend accessories in spring-summer 2019, reinvented with new styles, materials and all new technical elements of the latest years.
To pave the way for the sling bag’s comeback, there was the backpack, another must have accessory of the last seasons, whose dimensions and capacity either way don’t fit to everyone’s requirements: for those who love to bring only the most indispensable stuff or some small items as a book, a tablet pc or an ebook reader, the sling bag represents the perfect compromise between the backpack’s practicality and the crossbody-bags dimensions. The longish shape of this accessory furthermore leads ample space to different interpretations of design and material combinations, to create a versatile product fitting for office, free time, younger and older ones.
Within the brands which this season offer an own version of the sling bag, stand out some of the leaders of the sector with travel and business accessories as Bric’s and Piquadro, but also Moleskine and Roncato with a creative and feminine version.
The Monza collection from Bric’s offers a sling bag version with high-tech and elegant style at the same time, made of resistant technical fabric in combination with calf leather: the sling bag presents a capacious shape whose absolute protagonist is the large front pocket made of leather, perfect to contain smaller objects. For all items, which need more protection instead, the bag offers a small pocket at the side of the lightly padded shoulder strap, the ideal place to store a smartphone or a wallet. With its capacious dimensions and different compartments made of fabric, the sling bag from Bric’s of the Monza collection can be used also as substitute of a business briefcase for days during which one needs to bring only a few documents.
Of lightly smaller dimensions are the items offered by Piquadro, ideal as an alternative to the classical shoulder bag. The Piquadro sling bags are perfect to store a tablet pc or ebook reader, made of technical fabric with leather details and offer an elegant color range. The Brief collection is characterized by a more urban design emphasized by steel colored details, while the new Klout collection during this spring summer 2019 season is made of extra light technical fabric, which particularly fits for free time and long walks outside.
Also Moleskine dedicates an own collection to the sling bag, characterized by clear, linear and contemporary design at the same time with the typical Moleskine globetrotter style: an iPad compartment and pockets for smaller objects obviously can be found also in this collection’s items, to allow to the lovers of this brand to bring all indispensable objects for everyday, without missing the brand’s urban style.
Originally thought as an accessory of predominantly male inspiration due to the colors and the offered design, the sling bag is also loved by many women as it is a valid alternative to the classical shoulder bag: the Bloom collection from Roncato indeed is dedicated to all versatile women always in movement and offers a backpack with straps which can be linked with a zip closure and thus become a unique shuolder strap, so that the accessory can be used also as a sling bag. This solution is responsive to the feminine necessity to wear the bag in different ways based on the occasion, and thus is perfect for every dynamic woman who is always in movement and asks for a bag made of light and resistant fabric.
An icon of versatility as also casual and informal style, the sling bag during this season appears everywhere and in always more designs, materials and colors: as also for the backpack, the brands of luggage and business fashion dedicate ample space to this accessory and particular attention to the materials and the equipment on the inside. This lets presume, that the sling bag in future will accompany our travels and daily life for a lot of seasons.
