The modern messenger


Dads looking to put some serious style in their life might start with a bag by Malcolm Fontier. Although not designed as a nappy bag, the Director bag has enough pockets, compartments and a neoprene laptop pocket that it would do well for the ‘childcare then straight to the office’ run.

Made from coated canvas and available in black, white or brown, the Director features a neat belt enclosure, setting it apart from the standard messenger bag look. Whilst I’m not sure that the neoprene pockets could double as a comfortable change mat, the Director certainly ticks all the boxes for functionality and style.

The Director is available directly from Malcolm Fontier for US$225 and can be shipped to Australia.
