Companion Piece: Will Leather Goods
It's been a couple of seasons now since the whole Navajo and Native American trend has infiltrated the fashion world. With stylish powerhouses like Proenza Schouler, Opening Ceremony catching on to the trend and the revival of heritage brand Pendleton plus the ever-influential Junya Watanabe hinting at the trend for fall 2011, it's clear that there is no end in sight for these indigenous-inspired prints and patterns. Will Leather Goods, based in Eugene, Oregon and established in 1981 has long been championing the movement, regardless of its standing with the luxury fashion world. In fact, the label's focus has always been domestically-produced, hand-made artisanship with quality materials -- and all that attention to detail shows. Flipping through their catalog is enough tomake us want to take a weekend trip just to use their bags.
But while their bags are stunners, the company also makes a plethora of gorgeous belts and some funky suspenders and beautifully masculine woven bracelets. So perhaps you're a city slicker, but dream of conquering the wild, wild West? Sporting one of these bad boys will definitely show that you're a cowboy at heart.
