Pingmag asked trend hunter Rene Kurita to go to the fashionable neighbourhoods of Tokyo to document “men wearing (ladies’) handbags, pocketbooks and soft purses.” Rene says:

Why do boys wear bags at all? All you need is money, keys, phone… right? Pockets in your jeans will do… Wrong! One obvious reason is practicability here! If you ever lived in Tokyo, one thing is for sure: everybody spends a lot of time traveling on the train from home to the centre of things (think about the greater metropolitan area of Tokyo – this is not Paris!). That’s why people might not come home after work before sports or party activities (and some won’t even come home for days…).
