We found the perfect multi-tasking bag for your next getaway
R2R’s Spring/Summer 2015 Collection is made up of multi-tasking marvels that we’re now officially in love with
(SPOT.ph) Many will agree that one of the hardest parts of traveling is the packing. Is that bag you packed going to match all seven of your carefully planned outfits? No? Maybe you could bring seven different ones to match with each look and stuff all your back-up bikinis and accessories in them! But then you realize you don’t have enough arms, and not enough luggage space.
We came across "Viaje," the Spring/Summer 2015 collection of Rags 2 Riches (R2R) and, well, we think it can solve that perennial travel dilemma. The summery five-piece collection features patterns and weaves from three different communities, including a Mangyan tribe, the Development Action for Women Network (DAWN), and R2R’s urban artisans from Metro Manila. Each bag is available in five different colors and can be worn in many ways. Check it out:
Cecilia Hobo (P5,249)
Wear this expandable hobo bag on its own by unsnapping the buttons of the patterned pouch. The bag is expandable, just unzip the side zippers if you need more space for your things. You can also opt to just hand-carry the pouch, or even wear it as a sling bag!
Also called as their "carry-all bag." Functional and versatile, you can stash all your summer essentials without having to worry about space. Wear it with the printed pouch for a trendy, lively look, or if you just need something to hold your cash and wallet, just unsnap the pouch and sling it over your shoulder.
If you consider yourself an overpacker, or simply the type of person who carries a lot of things, then this roomy bag is what you need. Use it at full height when you’re really stashing your entire home, or fold it over if you need not to fill the bag up. Either way, the colors and prints will keep you looking stylish.
Perfect for the free-spirit who doesn’t really need much to survive, this bright, quirky sling blag is enough for a day out with friends. Unsnap the buttons, and you can wear the sling bag plain, or use the patterned pouch as a wristlet.
Transform your look according to your mood-this clutch (may also be worn as a sling bag) comes with three different flaps: the rounded-edged flap with Mangyan ramit weave, the triangle flap with Mangyan ramit, DAWN textile, and hand-stitched leather, and the leather flap with an accent handle.
