Westime Exclusively Offers Ghisò Bag
Ghisò’s Traveller Postino messenger bag.
For more than two decades, Westime has been the purveyor of extraordinary timepieces. This season, the California-based company extends its offerings to include an array of high-tech gadgets, men’s and women’s jewelry, handcrafted accessories, and leather goods with a new flagship store on Sunset Boulevard. In an age where e-mail has almost completely replaced traditional post, the Traveller Postino mailman messenger bag ($1,550) captures the poetic beauty of a handwritten letter.
Since 1928, Italian company Ghisò has been crafting leather goods with painstaking attention to detail and quality. Thanks to the Ghisò touch (an artisanal hand-polishing), the chocolate-colored, vegetal- tanned leather feels perfectly worn-in, yet the classic shape has modern touches too, namely its minimal hardware and clean stitching. Featuring two large compartments and an external and internal zipped pocket, there is more than enough room to stow away all of your day’s essentials. Available exclusively at Westime. Westime Sunset, 8569 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, 310-470-1388
