The Bowery Camera Bag

I know there are quite a few folks who read my blog who are either bloggers themselves or just plain old photography enthusiasts, so I thought I would do a slightly different post on my new camera bag. My birthday has just recently passed (and I’m weeping because I wanted to be Forvever 21), and my boyfriend surprised me with this really stunning leather camera bag. I had been lugging the starter Canon camera bag around for the past year and it was making me feel a bit like a n00b, so this was a really unexpected and perfect gift.

It is from a brand called Ona and it is crafted from Italian-tanned leather. The brand is a relatively new start up that focuses on making really high quality camera bags and accessories that blend functionality and style all at once. The bag I own is The Bowery and it is a really heavy thick leather that shows wear and tear really easily, but in the best possible way. I adore that it will show how well loved it will become over the years and I think I’ll really enjoy roughing it up. It is just big enough to fit a DSLR and a spare lens, but also houses quite a few pockets. This makes it really ideal for travelling, as I really won’t need to bring a purse.

If your in the market for treating yourself to a fancy bag or know someone else who is, definitely check out Ona. I am overjoyed with this bag and I’m sure anyone else who is lucky enough to receive it (or ballin’ enough to buy it for themselves) would be too.

  3. I've seen these bags before (either that or a very similar brand featured on A Beautiful Mess) and I was stunned that they were camera bags! They look like chic satchels and much more inconspicuous than the starter bag. Definitely something I want to look into!

  4. I've been eyeing a bag of theirs forever but it's unfortunately just a bit out of my budget at the moment! But I'm glad to hear the quality is good, I'll definitely be making the jump eventually!

  7. That's so nice! I'd love to get one, as I feel like a regular camera bag is just a bit boring, so something cute like this to carry things around would be great.

  13. This is such a stunning bag. I think I have been lusting after an Ona camera bag for a year and a half now. Maybe I can convince someone in my family to buy it for me as a college graduation gift in May lol!

  19. This is such a gorgeous bag! Camera bags are quite unsightly, but this makes a nice difference to the usual ones. I guess you could also use it as a normal little day bag too. It's so pretty!
