When constructing this look, I thought of the feeling of a new adventure lying ahead of me. The Funktionstasche 1 is the perfect companion for my endeavors, paired with a vintage leather YSL jacket made from soft leather and worn a bit down through the years. It’s warm enough for those windy summer nights but robust enough for any of my hectic exciting days. That’s the reason I chose to wear the Funktionstasche 1 with it; the leather contrasts wonderfully, the 1920’s inspired tool bag is elegant, urban but protects all my belongings.
Do not be fooled by its sleek exterior; every pocket has a purpose and is protected by a zipper and the thick, durable, eco-friendly (this leather needs no extra chemical protection to be water-resistant) saddle leather. There are two sleek outside pockets where I can put my lighter (or currently my disinfectant).
There are credit card slots, a coin compartment, a key hook in extra space ( so it doesn’t scratch your phone screen), and a zipper to ensure nothing gets lost during my city adventures.
Usually, I wear the Funktionstasche 1 as a cross-body bag, but of course, it’s also fabulous as a fanny pack. I got a lot of compliments about it and its excellent functionality in clubs like Berghain. And even a sweaty night, a cigarette burn, or rain can harm this baby because of its eco-friendly use of saddle leather and strong hand stitching.
I paired it with a plain white t-shirt from Uniqlo – I think it’s just beautifully versatile, and sometimes I even carry a spare with me or usually have one that I left at a friend’s place at an after-hour. I typically wear a black ultra-stretch Uniqlo Jeans cause it’s comfortable and still looks very fitting and stylish.
The only accessories I added is the bold, unique Perlenkette 2 that accentuates the vintage leather jacket and my white T-shirt. The genuine pearls encapsulated within the matt black steel are a one-of-a-kind necklace, and the stark contrast is what I love.
I paired them with some vintage YSL boots, but the outfit also goes very well with Adidas NMDs.
