The Von "New York" Camera Bag/Document Bag

I love bags, and I have had many I use as camera travel bags. From the excellent Billingham canvas bags to expensive Hermes and Fendi bags.

A couple of years ago I designed my own "The Von" camera travel bag with Italian designer Matteo Perin, and it's been the center of my travel bags since. It has the right size, the right comparments, it's stylish - and built to last a lifetime.

An elegant and simple carry-on bag made for 2-4 Leica M cameras with 4 lenses and accessories. Also fits 15" MacBook and/or reflector. Adjustable shoulder strap. eight pockets inside and one zipped compartment. Comes with to-die-for handmade insert with adjustable compartment. Insert can be taken out and the bag can act as a weekend or document bag.


I like simple things

The simpler it is, the harder it is to make. To obtain the exact design, style and usability I wanted, we had to continue to work on the details. "It's ready when it is right," was the slogan through countless prototypes, drawings and tests of "The Von" that was first introduced in 2017 and run it's test through my travel to more than 50 countries since.

In most product design these days, there is a lot of useless things added that complicate, or there are ways of doing things the wrong way for the right reasons. Things are seldom put to test in the real world by the people the product was intented for.

The sole reason I make camera bags, desk blotters, camera straps and other products was always that I wanted something in a certain way, and it didn't exist. So I had it made for me. As a general rule, I want simplicity, and it has to be out-of-this-world awesome at the same time. And if something is awesome and works, it has to last for a lifetime. That's the simple philosophy.

The Von Insert



The light-weight adjustbale insert made of alcatar is a removable insert and comes with the Von bag.

When used in the bag, there is space in the ands (to the left and right) for hard drives, chargers, etc.

There is also space on the front and bacck for reflector or labtop.

 

There is also space above the insert for a sweather, newspaper or what else you may want to carry in the bag.

 

j the . It comes with The Von bag, but can also be bought individually (14 x 3.5 x 9") to use as insert in any designer bag like Louis Vuitton iCare (14") / Steamer MM (18"), Goyard Ambassade (17"), Gucci, Fendi Pekaboo 16.1", etc.
For a cheaper solution with similar functionality you can also use the Hadley Pro insert from Billingham ($110).

 

The shoulder strap

The Von comes with a matching shoulder strap that attaches to the bag with durable and long-tested meatal parts (look pretty too). The strap is adjustable in length, intented for having the bag cross body, but you can also have it hanging on one shoulder.

The inside story

The inside of a bag is for you to enjoy, and it should remind you how throughout quality and aesthetics this bag was made for your pleasure and long use. I always judged a bag on it's inside quality: That's what shows the craftmanship, and what "it really is" rather than if it's just a pretty bag to look at.

Eight pockets (four on each side) for passport, business cards, notebook. The pockets are flat and doesn't take up any space when not used, but allow for rather bulky things in them, when used. Thehy don't take up any space but gives you lots of space for organizing and storage.

Two pen holders large enough for fountain pens.

One zipped large compartment for cables, card reader, memory stick, WhiBal cards and all the loose odd parts you don't want to loose or have floating around somewhere else.

The Von is made to live in, you can tell it can't wait to take good care of your cameras.


 

 


All my bags have the inscription "ALWAYS WEAR A CAMERA", becuase that's what it is about. A lifestyle of traveling and photographing, always crating aesthetic photographs. The label also reads, "Handmade in Italy of the finest materials, by the finest people, for the most awesome people in the world"

The "Always Wear a Camera" Calfskin Camera Bag by Thorsten von Overgaard and Matteo Perin


Throw it around: This bag is made for use over many years in the real world. It may be a fashion statement, but it's made for bring thron in and out of card, dragged through airports, get bumped in the overhead compartment, stacked on a trolley, handled by bellboys, and all that. The the things inside stays protected and organized, and the bag is made to be patient to abuse, intented to last a lifetime. The harder you use it, the more patina it will get, but it will hold it together and be your forever.

 


Pretty with orange edges: Orange edging is an old Italian tradition to close the edges and for decoration. An artisan will paint the edges carefully, usually 8-10 times over a day or two to get the right finish and durability.


Handles to die for. Just the right shape and size to be comfortable when you carry the bag, and a decorative design that compeltes the bag when not used. Stury made of soft leather, soft piping inside to give the right size and softness, with orange edging details in the best artisan tradition.

Drop it like it's hot. Five metal studs under the bag so you can park it on the floor in the airport or anywhere else without smudge or water gets to it.

 

Zipper opens all the way so you can easily get stuff in and out fo the bag. Notice in this picture, the space above the insert that allow for a newspaper, sweather, jacket or other extras in the bag.

"It's ready when it is right" is our slogan, and everything is made for me first, used for a ling while, adjusted and used again, then put into production.
