The Marc Newson X PORTER shoulder bag is a collaboration with heritage Japanese luggage company Yoshida & Co. as part of their 85th anniversary project. Based on an old Porter model that Marc used to own, the shoulder bag is updated in hickory fabric and with an added detachable eyeglasses case and lens cleaner. The bag features Marc’s signature orange label and the 85th anniversary logo inside.

“The concept of this product is to create an item primarily for men to use in the way women have various hand-bags. I became tired of trying to find a place for phones, glasses and various other items that are needed every day.”
