after working for years for a global apparel brand, john van dorst decided to live his dream. driven by an ardent passion for leather, he now designs vandorst, a line of contemporary men’s bags, wallets and diaries with a distinct heritage twist that’s inspired by his adventurous grandparents. bag styles are classic but very compatible with the lifestyle of today’s savvy male. each item is made from the finest hand-picked leathers and displays a quality and craftsmanship reminiscent of bygone days.
at last week’s official launch in amsterdam a series of vandorst trophy bags were given to a number of the designer’s globetrotting friends. interestingly, this select group will document their journeys, and obviously also the bags, in various travel situations and destinations on the vandorst website. the entire vandorst collection will be available online from next february and drop in select stores from next july.
