Herschel Supply has once again partnered with Liberty of London and has put out an awesome collection of backpacks and pouches with beautiful, artistic color blocked prints from the British fashion retailer’s library. I brought along the classic Settlement backpack style during my trip to Chile last week.

In addition to my In The Bag series, I wanted to start a new one to have something more regular to showcase five different items that can be applied to everyday travels – shot in the ever popular #flatlay style. For my first post of Daily Essentials, items for summertime in the city in blue tones that were selected since it is a favorite of mine and has been noted as being very popular right now (though isn’t always?). To add a summer vibe, torte and hemp also play a role in this set.
The slim cross-body square tote is from Ben Minkoff ($350) and is named the Heath Zipper Tote. I fell in love with it right away for its simple, yet chic design and the sharp royal blue. It is crafted in genuine leather and has a later zip pocket and several open pockets inside. You’ll be seeing it again soon in an Outfit post!
Italian born and bred, Tod’s is best known for its excellent driving shoes. For the 2013-2014 Autumn/Winter collection, Tod’s man is said to be inspired by the interiors of contemporary gentlemen’s clubs, places of impeccable and timeless elegance. “Ideal for the contemporary man and his style: carefully studied, refined and cosmopolitan.”
In the collection below, you’ll find the timeless Gommino driving moccasins (which have a rounded shape crafted from hand-waxed leather), the semi-glossy leather Derby shoes with rubber sole, sunglasses with leather details, textured leather mini iPad case, pebbled leather wallets, and the traveler’s eye candy, the Petroleum blue leather bag and two-tone gray suede sneakers with ultralight rubber sole (pictured above).
Business travel is on the rise again and New York remains the top U.S. destination, so no better location for a business casual look that’s perfect for in the office or on the go—whether it be plane or commuting down the High Line.
If you’re traveling this summer for work, and your hosting office calls for a casual look, have some fun and ditch the khakis or the wingtips and cap-toes. A colorful boat shoe or moc can really put that extra pep in your step, while keeping it prep, and that is what this look was based around.
Business On Top, Party On The Bottom
