Numero 10 Monzeglio Travel BagAll we want for Christmas is the Monzeglio Travel Bag by Italian luxe line Numero 10. The line features styles for women and several unisex styles like the one above. We prefer the one on the left, as we think they one on the right looks a little like a purse.

Check out Numero 10‘s site for more info and more styles, including our other favorite the Platone Travel Bag in a hot distressed charcoal leather with distressed brown detailing.

Factotum Fall Winter 2010Check out the Fall/Winter 2010 collection by Japanese menswear label Factotum. We love the collection, especially the jackets.

Launched in 2004, Factotum is a Japanese menswear label known for its military and working man influenced styling. The brand’s creator Koji Udo was born in 1971, and is a graduate of Tokyo Mode Gakuen. After college, he worked for Beams Ltd., studied in London, and – with Manabu Yaegashi and Tatsuya Togo – launched the Lounge Lizard brand before creating Factotum.

Johannes Faktotum Spring/Summer 2011Check out the Spring/Summer 2011 collection from New York menswear line Johannes Faktotum — not to be confused with Japanese line Factotum that we covered earlier today.

Johannes Faktotum meaning “jack-of-all-trades” is a menswear line established in 2009 by Johanna Bloomfield. Focusing on quality and craftsmanship, the collection combines modern athleticism and sleek tailoring. Technical fabrics are used in combination with luxe knitwear to create a utilitarian wardrobe that is both functional and innovative.

Johanna began her career in menswear in 2002 when she moved from New York to London to study at the London College of Fashion. She went on to gain work experience in Paris and Berlin, and eventually returned to New York to work on the Ralph Lauren men’s collection. It was here that Johanna gained a true appreciation for vintage construction as well as a passion for the intricate details of knitwear design.

Check out the images from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection below. For more info, check out Johannes Faktotum‘s site.
