If you listen closely you might be able to actually hear me squealing with excitement over the new bag collection by Lo & Sons… CAMERA BAGS. Stylish and functional camera bags. If you’re a DSLR user you know that the word “stylish” is not really an adjective that comes into play when talking about bags used to hold your camera, extra lens, etc. If you’re a DSLR user like me then maybe you say “screw the ugly, bulky camera bag” and toss your precious into a big handbag or work bag (only to later be like, “hmm, the lens cap popped off and why is my strap tanged with my headphones and day planner?!”).
DSLR cameras aren’t cheap and there’s a reason why they give you those ugly bugly bags when you first get one – to keep you from breaking yo camera when you take it anywhere and everywhere… Which is why this is such a genius collection from L&S – aside from how great the bags look in the putty leather and gun metal hardware, the flap openings will make getting to a camera so much easier (than the stupid zippers on the ugly bugly bags) and the quilted interior keeps your precious safe and cozy. And there are some secret compartments for storing extra DSLR goodies – but would you really expect anything less from the people who brought you the O.G. bag? The two styles won’t be available till Fall 2012 but you can join the wait list now for either the Claremont Crossbody or the Melrose Mini Backpack. I love them both but am particularly fond of the mini backpack… Get excited.
