Lo & Sons: Claremont vs. Melrose

The fact that I love my camera and all its bells and whistles should come as a surprise to no one.  It's not exactly enjoyable to lug around everywhere, but hey, it comes with the territory.  One thing that would make it a bit more enjoyable to tote around though, would be something other than the big, boxy, not-so-pretty bag it currently resides in.

Enter Lo & Sons. They have two camera bags that aren't just tolerable, they're beautiful. For starters, they don't look like camera bags.  They look like actual bags that a non-photographer would carry. Need I say more? I'll let the bags speak for themselves.

The first bag pictured is The Claremont and the second is The Melrose. The inside of both bags are padded and have a compartment for both the body with an attached lense and one compartment for an additional lense.

The same thing that draws me to The Melrose also draws me away from it - the trendiness. Sure, backpack purses are acceptable right now, but I think we all remember how long they stuck around last time, right? 

So, what do you think? Are you a Claremont gal or a Melrose gal? Or maybe you're a neither gal? Let me know what your thoughts are!

I've been wanting a new camera bag for two years. I can't say though, that I would want either of these Lo & Sons bags. They are beautiful but simply don't appear to have the room that I am seeking in a bag. Of the two you are showing, if I had to choose,I would probably select the backpack style. :-)

I just got a bag from Ephinanie it's about $250 but it seriously adorable and looks like a massive purse with padding.

The Claremont is definitely my favorite. I'm not a 'backpack' kind of girl and I love how the Claremont looks like a fabulous purse!

I'm definitely a claremont! I'm moving to Scotland for grad school at St. andrews and thought it would be perfect for my move! Luckily for me, my parents saw me lusting over it and got it for me. It's even more beautiful in person!

I love Lo&Sons! They have such cute bags that are perfect for travel :)

I like the Claremont, just because I think it you might get more use out of it since it looks just like purse! (And a cute, trendy-yet-classic purse at that!) But as far as the Melrose, backpacks are making a comeback lately. I just think a cross-body bag might be more convenient!

Taylor Green said...

Wow, these bags are AMAZING! I'm the same way - I love my camera, but it can be a huge pain in the butt to carry around everywhere. Thanks for sharing, Morgan!!

Those bags ARE pretty! I hate lugging around my heavy camera, but I agree, it's worth it. Thanks for sharing these nice camera bags!

Amanda said...

Such a genius idea. The bags are gorgeous. Im a sucker for a good cross body bag so I'd have to go with the Claremont. But both are adorable!

What a GORGEOUS camera bag! Much better than my heavy, hideous, black Canon one! I think I like the cross body one more than the backpack but both are a-ma-zinggg!

Claremont looks awesome!! You're totally right about the backpack limited "trendy"-ness. But it kinda makes more sense for a photographer to carry a back pack because the bag might swing in the way while crouching or bending??? Still Claremont looks cuter haha
