The Thorsten von Overgaard Gallery Store - "Hemingway" Messenger Bag
 
 
     


The new "Hemingway" Messenger Bag. A travel bag, for cameras. Designed by Thorsten von Overgaard and Matteo Perin.

 

The "Hemingway" Messenger Bag

This bag is meant for the storyteller who lives his own adventure on the move in and out of hotels, cars, airplanes and beautiful locations. It's the ultimate flexible bag, and as any great composed story, it gets better with age. Special soft leather make it look and feel as an good old friend from the first moment.

This extra soft bag is meant to be a messenger bag for notebooks, camera, headphones, nice pens and a few other things.
At other occasions, you may put the camera insert into it, and it holds 2-4 Leica M cameras and four lenses (still with space for a notebook, computer and more).



The Hemingway, here shown in Taupe, also turns into a full-on camera bag for 2-4 Leica M cameras and four lenses and all the xtra stuff. Order with the insert to use it as a camera bag whenever you are in that mood. The insert is inserted or taken out, no big deal. And even with the insert, there is still space for a MacBook Pro or iPad and extra things.

 

I like simple things

 
 

Our Italian artisans in Verona, Venica and Milano are part of family workshops which have been doing leather work for generations.

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" bag which was first introduced in 2017, and subsequently tested through my travel to more than 50 countries since.

In most product designs these days, there are a lot of useless things added which 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 intended for.

The sole reason I make camera bags, desk blotters, camera straps and other products was always that I wanted something done 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 have out-of-this-world quality at the same time. And if something is awesome and works, it has to last for a lifetime. That's the simple philosophy.

The Hemingway
Messenger Bag

For storytellers who live their own adventure, this extra soft bag is meant to be a messenger bag for notebooks, camera, headphones, nice pens and a few other things.
At other occasions, you may put the camera insert into it, and it holds 2-4 Leica M cameras and four lenses (still with space for a notebook, computer and more).

Also fits a 16" MacBook and/or reflector when you need something to hold these while walking about, or going from a car to a café, going to work or to a place to photograph.

Adjustable wide and soft shoulder strap. Two pockets inside and one zipped compartment. "Secret" compartment on the back.

Soft Italian calfskin with matching adjustable shoulder strap. With hand-painted orange edging to make it special, and "ALWAYS WEAR A CAMERA" stamped inside so as to whisper inspiration to you in the morning. That's all.

The inside story

The inside of a bag is for you to enjoy, and it should remind you through its quality and aesthetics that this bag was made for your pleasure and long-term use. I’ve always judged a bag on its inside quality: this is where the craftsmanship shows. The interior is for me what the bag “really is" rather than just a pretty exterior to look at. 


The Hemingway has two penholders that are scaled to hold even thick fountain pens.There are eight pockets (four on each side) for passports, business cards, notebooks. The pockets are flat and don't take up any space when not in use, but allow for rather bulky things in them, when used. They don't take up any space but give you lots of space for organizing and storage. 

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

The Von Insert 



The light-weight adjustable insert made of Alcantara is a removable insert and can be bought with the Hemingway Messenger.

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

There is also space on the front and back for a reflector or a laptop. 

There is also space above the insert for a sweater, newspaper or whatever else you may want to carry in the bag. See herehow it works. 

It comes with The Von bag, but can also be bought individually The insert (14 x 3.5 x 9") is also sold individually to use as an insert in any designer bag like Louis Vuitton iCare (14") / Steamer MM (18"), Goyard Ambassade (17"), Gucci, Fendi Pekaboo 16.1", etc. and are used by many because it in itself is the most awesome camera insert ever made.

All my bags have the inscription 'ALWAYS WEAR A CAMERA' upon them. Because, that's what it is about. A lifestyle of traveling and photographing, always creating 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 inside is delicious soft material and features space for two thick pens, eight pockets and one zipper department.

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 smudges or water getting into it from the bottom.
