Man bags have hit mainstream fashion and styles have evolved beyond the conservative messenger bag and hyper-masculine backpack.
This season’s man bag trend began at the Prada Fall 2018 show, where both men and women walked the runway with nylon bags.

Back on our shores, Inga Atelier offers a range of luxury sling bags in monochrome and black. All its products are manufactured in Johannesburg, making buying them even more worthwhile.
