designer lounge: the man bag

This week in the designer lounge I thought I would do something a bit different and look at the latest fashion trends for men..
Although its slightly controversial and some men can pull it off whilst others really can't, the man bag is back and it is quite literally bigger than ever.
The man bag will always remind me of f.r.i.e.n.d.s- when joey decides what his career is missing is a man bag but ultimately it seems the world simply isn't ready for the launch of his new accessory....well things couldn't be more different ten years on!
The craze was apparent on the AW11 catwalk and was favoured by the likes of Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Diesel.
I think this fashion trend really is a test of masculinity- are you man enough to sport the mighty man bag? Or are you more of a keys, wallet and phone in pockets kind of guy?
If you have a phobia of the man bag than relax, as this season they are a lot less feminine and much more wearable and easy to pull off.
Whether you opt for a holdall, duffel or briefcase carry it with the confidence that you are bang on trend. 
Look magazine online have put together a list of the best man bags available on the high street...check it out: High Street Hottest for Men
