MEn wEAriNg (LADieS’) HAndDaGs

"In other global cities they may still wear ACNE jeans or cardigans, in Tokyo that would be just one of last week’s trends amongst so many others.

Something that can be spotted in every street around Shibuya: men wearing (ladies’) handbags, pocketbooks and soft purses - casually over the shoulder, elegantly on the wrist or firmly gripped on the way to a meeting.

If I were you I wouldn't miss the chance to spend 10 minutes to read a nice article about this new trend: men wearing handbags. Mainly ladies handbags. PingMag, one of the most interesting site over the web, has made an accurate analysis of the phenomenon. Well done.
