WEARTO.COM: Pick Of The Week #11

As first seen at BLUEPRINT 2012, 72Smalldive officially launches its first men’s collection, 50, at WEARTO.COM.

50, 72 Smalldive’s first collection of men’s accessory, is a capsule collective of men’s bags designed for commuting and traveling. The collection includes a mini selection of sundry items of belts and wallets which were made for the savvy traveler.

50 is a subtle tongue in cheek response to Paul Simon’s pop-hit that despite the 50 ways to leave a lover, there is only 1 way to make an entrance or exit elegantly.

Subtlety permeates through the collection, and occasionally broken down by the team’s love for asymmetry in aesthetics.

With an emphasis on simple and minimalist exterior, wool felt (sourced from Piacenza wool mills) and calfskin are chosen to amplify the feel factor of the collection; both materials are known for their suppleness and yet resistance to the climate.

Why felt? You may ask. Its many properties are unrivaled by any other single material. Wool Felt is wear resistant, cuts with a clean edge and does not ravel or fray. It can be exposed to the natural physical elements e.g. rain, sun, wind and is a renewable and environmentally friendly resource.

To cater to the demanding and at times complicated needs of our modern city man, the bags interior are created with multiple compartments.

The male urban warrior can fight his city woes with ease.

The 50 collection is now available on WEARTO.COM
