Mauro Bianucci never set out to be a "green" designer. The 35-year-old architect and founder of Carga, a line of wool felt bags, didn't have soil pollution or Al Gore on his mind when he made his first prototype about a year ago. "I was searching for a bag to carry my things around in, and I had some industrial felt left over from a project," he said.
Bianucci's androgynous, logo-free satchels ($175 to $375 at retail) are simply constructed, using gray industrial wool felt, aluminum rivets and vegetable-dyed leather straps. The aesthetic is urban, minimalist and functional.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
