With the premiere of its 2014 spring/summer range of toting goods, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie invites us to “imagine an artist who divides his time between a studio loft in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood and a serene glass house perched atop the Baltic seaside.” Inspired by the beauty of both the urban landscape and natural world, this season blends functional, yet stylish accessories with nature’s vivid array of hues. While the blues and browns conjure up images of deep seas with cliff-side views, bright shades of yellows, reds and greens represent the artist’s rich watercolors, drawing pencils and drafting table. Hallmark silhouettes like the Liberty travel wallet, O’Hare tote, Kastrup backpack, and Barajas portfolio return in innovative materials like rubberized leather and textural woven fibers.
