I’m pretty sure the “Guardian Angel” bags from Amsterdam based design duo Vlieger & Vandam are a sure fire way to get me banned from all banks,airports and a fair few drinking establishments in Glasgow but the embossed gun and knife bags are pretty much one of my favourite things.
I’d spotted them in Brazen many moons ago – buttery goatskin leather – just chilling there, looking fucking fabulous. It’s November so on the run up to Christmas pretty sure I’m legitimately allowed to start dropping seriously pouty faced puppy eyed hints in the direction of the boy?
In 2005 the MoMA in New York featured these guys in an exhibition “Safe: Design Takes on Risk” and as of 2006 the Guardian Angel bags were made a permanent part of their collection. So keep your Birkin’s and your 2.55’s – I want me a Guardian Angel.
Effectively living in stab city think the knife embossment may be a bit too much?
Vliger & Vandam are stocked in Brazen in the Merchant City…which I do not pass every day and coo in the window. We’re looking between £189-£350 for a bag….shall I start saving now then?
