Philip Sparks for Danier Spring 2012 Men's Accessories Collection

When Danier recently announced the latest addition to their roster of designer collaborators, Toronto-based Philip Sparks, there was an audible cheer from fashion-conscious men across the country. An accessories collection to call their own, one they wouldn’t have to share with the ladies? Definitely cause for excitement. Today, we got a sneak peek at the collection at the Danier Spring 2012 preview, and it’s everything they – and we! – hoped it would be.

Sparks’ designs for Danier are classic, functional, and downright attractive-looking. “We started with a nostalgic idea of travel and how people once boarded airplanes and train cars with a wardrobe of carryalls, duffle bags and cases,” says the designer. “Then, we updated that mix to include iPad cases and backpacks filled with extra pockets and compartments for contemporary travelers who expect the functionality of five bags in one.”

The results are highly covetable. In fact, I’m disappointed that the collection won’t be available in time for the holidays; a swanky new briefcase would’ve been a perfect Christmas gift for the Mister. Or me, for that matter. Because if the men thought they wouldn’t have to share this collection with the women, think again.
