Tommy Ton teams up with Club Monaco to sell bags (and oddly, not shoes)
It was recently announced that Tommy Ton from Jak&Jil blog (oh, and GQ photographer and host of fashion parties) has teamed up with Club Monaco to produce a women’s messenger bag and a men’s backpack to debut during New York Fashion Week. The retailer will gift the bags to a select few of Ton’s favourite street style subjects (though we can’t exactly picture Anna Dello Russo carrying such a quiet messenger bag) to be shot during NYFW, with a gallery show of Ton’s shots on March 20 in its New York City Fifth Avenue flagship. On the same day, the bags, priced between $198 and $225, will arrive at the Bloor Street store in Toronto, just days after the city’s own fashion week—dubbed Canadian Catwalk—comes to a close. Which Torontonian fashion plate will be the first to be spotted with one?
