Cheerio, cycling chaps! Chrome Industries introduced a new city series, giving two of their most popular bags a makeover that embodies that culture of the selected city. With London as the first destination, the Citizen messenger bag ($160) and Yalta backpack ($140) are updated to reflect the "punk, bikes, royalty and tweed" of the British capital.
The traditional exterior fabric of each bag is replaced with a double-coated herringbone tweed outer shell and nubuck leather panel. The interior fabric sports a cheeky Victorian cycling print from wallpaper producer Flavor Paper. Both bags boast plenty of room for laptop storage; and, the Yalta features side access to get gadgets in a flash. Look out for more cities to receive the Chrome treatment in 2012; but, we can think of no better combination than bikes and tweed.
