Sprayground's Gold Brick mini duffle bag

I ran into Uncle Ess coming out of the FUSE building and the first thing that caught my eye was the NUGGET of a backpack he was sporting.  Foil-y gold and so fresh, it had my name written all over it!

SPRAYGROUND's founder/designer, David Ben David (also known as DBD), knows just how to conceptualize the shape of an ordinary backpack and turn it into an element of modern and whimsical design. 

His famous fans include the likes of singer/artist Chris Brown, singer Baiyu, rapper Two Chains, and actor/rapper Jaden Smith.

Street Style in Milan, via The Sartorialist

'Janie', shot by The Sartorialist

I feed off of the globe-trotting, fashion-spying eye of Scott Schuman, better know as The Sartorialist, for several reasons-- one reason being his keen awareness of the 'here-and-now' meets 'classic mainstays' of the fashion world.

While in Milan, he came across Janie-- who pulls off a summery, tailored "Boy Meets Girl" style with ease.

My fave(s): Janie's neon yellow belt (and her freckles).
