There is something less masculine about a man carrying a bag – NOT TRUE!

I bring my laptop, mobile phone, wallet, house and office keys, my digital camera, my lined and plain moleskine for some random doodling and notes everyday and just where am I supposed to equip all these? There’s only so much capacity my skinny Viktors can offer.


Never underestimate the value of a good tote! Two months ago, I met Oopatham Ratanasupa, a Thai national who is currently based in Paris taking his masters in Urban Design at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d' Architecture Paris La Villette carrying a nice black canvas tote with really nice leather straps. the bag was perfect for just about anything and can be used beyond the 9-5. Basically the type that you could just throw your stuff in and you’re good to go.

(It also never hurts when they’ve got just as much style to match. Oopatham and his bag collection - envy!)

Oopatham (Ome)also founded BKKER, an independent retail shop in Bangkok and is a professor at Silpakorn University in Thailand.
