The Ferrari of Canvas Weekender Bags
- Najib Benouar
At this very moment, thousands of weekend road trips are being dreamed up—so it’s a good idea to have a weekender handy. (In fact, you might want to have a dedicated escape bag at the ready.)
We’d suggest something compact enough to discreetly tuck under your desk, and made, if possible, from the same canvas as your vintage Ferrari’s convertible top. Like the Rosso Corsa bag from Bench & Loom, styled after a nautical duffle and handmade by Ferrari fanatics who restore vintage ones in Modena—naturally, making weekender bags seemed like the most appropriate use of the leftover canvas from the convertible tops. (Yes, the leather handles are also Italian.) The result: a bag sturdy enough to withstand the G-force of a hairpin turn and handsome enough to complement the prancing horse.
Though, as you’ve surely noted from our summer must-haves (at left), a vintage roadster of any badge should do.
