Inspired by man’s exploration of the physical world and the drive to discover, understand and produce, the WANT Les Essentiels Spring/Summer 2017 collection injects luxury into the essentials of every day life.
The perfectly formed, ultra-functional collection provides today’s global nomad with a readjusted sense of comfort and opulence for life’s many journeys. Elevated staples in the season’s timeless colour palette of Cognac, Mahogany, Sand, Grey Caviar, Deep Sea and Navy Suede are designed for the modern explorer as he seeks new horizons while still finding pleasure in every carefully considered detail.
The collection includes new travel-focused pieces such as the Marti, a deep-set open tote, and the Fellini travel case, a roomier version of the brand’s popular Kenyatta dopp kit with cleverly designed zipper compartments. Classic WANT styles such as the Kastrup backpack, Douglas holdall, O’Hare shopper tote and Trudeau computer bag have been reimagined in suede, nubuck, leather, linen and this season’s refined, light gray pebble ultra-suede — all modernist materials inspired by concrete, stone and sand.
