The Maltby cross-body bag is crafted from luxurious embossed leather to a compact cross-body design and it features expertly hand-painted edging. The vintage-inspired metal oval front feature is hand-wrapped in leather and it adds a decorative twist, referencing retro jewellery styles. For security, the flap top front feature slots underneath the hardware to fasten with a magnet; a subtle functionality that doesn’t interfere with the bag’s otherwise sleek sensibility. Lining is bonded to the exterior, colours have been chosen to complement the primary shade and there’s an internal sleeve pouch and a back slip pocket. But it’s the bespoke perforated leather and studded shoulder strap that’s the showpiece. Inspired by the strap of an electric guitar and designed with an adjustable buckle fastening to allow you wear it close under one arm or across the body, it makes a sleek contradiction to the textured leather exterior and transforms a classic accessory design into something trend-focused.
