Nathaniel Cole bag collection


Western Canada's farm trade doesn't necessarily spring to mind sartorial inspiration, nevertheless it's where CrownCap established roots in 1934 with its signature aviator & trapper hats. Since then, the historic brand has branched out to include bags and small leather goods with a rugged edge that nod to the hardworking utilitarian pieces that established the label. While the collection was designed for men, this Weekend Duffle ($264), with it's antique brass hardware, tan leather and heavy-duty waxwear canvas, has a handsome vintage quality that has set this lady's heart a flutter.
