Hey, check it: THERE’S MORE TO THIS BAG THAN MEETS THE EYE. Sure this Lo & Sons creation looks like a super-classic (kinda-Frenchy) crossbody purse, but it’s actually equipped to hold your DSLR—lens, memory cards, and all. Course, when you’re cool to rely on your iPhone for memory-capturing, it can do everyday bag, too. —erica

This is a camera bag. Oh, you couldn’t tell? That’s the entire point. So impressed with those geniuses behind Lo & Sons. —erica

Emerging Thing of the Week: Lo & Sons

Back in 2010, when we did enough activities not related to Of a Kind to be considered vaguely interesting people, we did a series of posts called Things of the Week. These days we might not know the status of Justin Timberlake’s dating life (the horror) or have a favorite new AMC show (do people still watch that network?), but we do encounter a lot of non-fashion things from very talented up-and-comers that we think are worth sharing.

So, without further ado/rambling…Lo & Sons makes super streamlined, super utilitarian travel bags—or so they say. The fact of the matter is that while the totes would fit nicely into an overhead bin, they are actually the perfect city bag—just the thing you need if you don’t have an office and lug around your computer, a camera, a change of shoes, and a shit-ton of nonsense every day. The O.G. (which was gifted to me) has a shoe pocket. Did you hear that? A pocket. For your shoes. As if that’s not enough, the company’s story elicits the kind of emotions typically reserved for books like Marley & Me or Tuesdays with Morrie: It was started by Helen Lo, who, in her mid-60s, decided she wanted to create this line. So her two boys Derek and Jan quit their advertising and product design jobs to help her make it happen. I mean, stop it. It’s just too much. —erica
