Longevity is very important for the design of a bag. Shoes take me to places, while the bag is something like a dear companion that I take along for the ride, whether its the daily commute or the occasional wanderlust. It must be designed for the long run, not only the built, but also its look. That’s why I have a strange habit of selecting bags only after imagining what they’ll be like if the picture was in black and white. A classic design is one that makes magnificent music even in a silent film, just like what you see in the photo above.
WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie (literally “The Essentials of Life”)is a luxury luggage and travel accessories brand from Montreal that focuses on duality, versatility and adaptability.

Amidst the whirlwind spinning with Fashion’s ever-changing fancies, WANT’s bags stand at the eye of the hurricane, demanding your devotion and fidelity with their classic designs.
