Iterating time-honored tradition with a contemporary twist, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie offers up a taste of Japanese culture for fall/winter 2014.

For this collection, the upscale travel accessories brand explored the natural colors and textures of the Japanese mountains and utilized those elements to rework its signature designs and silhouettes. The implementation of new materials, sizes, and patterns keeps the range fresh, but the adherence to clean lines and earthy color tones keeps it deeply rooted in the label’s tradition.

The selection ranges from wallets to totes and gloves to belts, providing a well-rounded collection that emphasizes daily utility for the modern man. Standout items include the Peretola foldable folio, which features an updated design with thick wools in checked patterns and blanket stripes, as well as the brand’s now-iconic Kastrup backpack, now presented in full leather.

Take a look at the range below, and be sure to pick up your favorite items at WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie’s online store.
