BAGS TO BUILD A BOLDER LOOK

1. The Cross-Body

After a few seasons stuck in fashion limbo, cross-body bags are making a return this year. As seen at Louis Vuitton’s autumn/winter 2015 show, zippered styles – also known as reporter bags – are the ones to keep an eye out for, and a far cry from the fold-over flap designs so reminiscent of the early noughties.

They give off a slightly more casual vibe, so you might want to think twice before pairing one with a suit. You’ll also want to make sure the strap is the right length for the bag to be carried no lower than your hipline – unless you plan on delivering someone’s post.

2. The Backpack

Another historically bland type of bag that’s having a bit of a moment, the backpack has – for several seasons now – been given the luxury treatment by a number of high-end designers.

For those of us on a budget, the good news is that this trend has already trickled down to the high street – meaning you can find buttery leather versions, complete with elegant hardware and exquisite detailing, at much more affordable price points.

An unexpected yet luxurious way to accessorise a suit, the backpack is also the ideal finishing touch to a minimal sportswear-inspired look:

3. The Folio

Smart and unobtrusive, a leather folio is a classic that shows you mean business whether you’re suited and booted or prefer to work in jeans and a wool bomber.

If you’re looking for a design that’s up to the minute (and you’re not lugging around 500-page contracts), then consider a leaner, more discreet style in the form of the pouch – though keep in mind you won’t be able to carry anything sizeable in these slimline versions.

We mean it – as tempting as it is, stuffing a folio with junk instantly ruins its sleek and sophisticated shape.

4. The Tote

Arguably one of the most ‘fashion’ bags alongside the folio, the tote is practical, but really shines as a statement accessory rather than something sturdy to cart your daily essentials around in.

Ideal for storing your phone, keys, a couple of notebooks and a laptop, it’s a stylish alternative to a briefcase that – admittedly – can sometimes be difficult to hold when striding through packed train stations.

Available in canvas and leather predominantly, as well as every colour and print imaginable, there’s a tote to suit every taste. Avoid excessive hardware or add-ons like charms or key chains, and let the simple design and great materials do the talking.

5. The Holdall/Duffle Bag

Hitting the gym several times a week? A mid-sized holdall or duffle bag will fit all of your kit while keeping you looking on-form.

Nothing beats leather when it comes to sophistication but textiles – including canvas, wool and performance materials – work well depending on your everyday attire.

Dimensions matter, so ask for something no larger than 55cm wide (enabling it todouble up as cabin baggage for short trips away) and make sure it’s lightweight enough to be carried with ease. A detachable, padded shoulder strap should also be a priority if you find yourself lugging it around for extended periods each day.

The Right Bag For You

Whichever bag you choose, it’s worth following these guidelines:

When purchasing, keep your personal style and usual colour palette in mind. It’s important to opt for something in a hue and material that can be easily integrated with your existing wardrobe – whether that’s mostly longline white T-shirts and black nylon bombers or sharp pastel tailoring.

Although certain capacious designs offer plenty of room, you shouldn’t necessarily use every last inch of the space available. This is as much a scoliosis warning as a style diktat. Carrying heavy weights is never a good look, while over-stuffing your bag can stretch and wear out the material.

Why should you care what your gym bag looks like? Because despite holding sweaty shorts and dirty trainers, you’ll be carrying it around all day and – irrespective of its pungent contents – if it looks bad, then so do you.

Watch out for shoulder straps when you’re wearing tailoring, as they can cause unsightly creases, and have the potential to ruin the structure of your blazer or coat. Look for bags that offer both hand straps and a shoulder strap so you can switch around to keep your suits looking their best.

Certain styles, particularly handle-free folios, can be a pain to carry for extended periods of time. Even simple tasks – such as taking a call while smoking a cigarette or hailing a taxi while holding a coffee, for example – quickly become laborious, which may mean you’re better off with a more practical backpack or cross-body.

人造子宮動物實驗再獲成功,綿羊胎兒健康存活並出生

星期四,21/09/2017 美國費城的研究人員首次嘗試用人造子宮體外培育綿羊胎兒,獲得成功。如今,澳大利亞的科學家重複了這一實驗,綿羊胎兒在人造子宮內存活一周,之後健康出生。這項技術的最終目的是幫助人類早產兒平安度過發育的關鍵期。不過,出於謹慎考慮,研究人員稱五年內不會進行臨床實驗。 人造子宮是一個充滿液體的塑料袋,裡面的液體模擬真實母體子宮內的羊水。另有一個外界的氧合器(oxygenator)模擬胎盤的功能,負責氧循環。 人造子宮由胎兒的心臟來驅動。隨著胎兒發育,各個器官逐漸長大,在此過程中,心臟被密切監控,確保不會負載過重。 研究人員稱這項技術為「體外子宮環境」(ex-vivo uterine environment)。此前,美國費城兒童醫院用該方法成功培養了綿羊胎兒。現在,西澳大學、澳洲婦女嬰兒研究基金會和日本東北大學醫院的研究人員重複了實驗,並獲成功。 兩項研究中用到的都是 105-115 天大的綿羊胎兒,相當於人類 23 周的胎兒。 在此次重複實驗中,綿羊胎兒在人造子宮內發育了一周,之後健康出生,無腦部損傷。 美國每年大約有 3 …

最新研究结果试图解释月球形成之谜

星期四,21/09/2017 以色列和法国科学家最新发表在《自然》杂志上的报告说,月球可能是在同地球成分极其相似的一个天体撞击地球之后形成的。 这一理论显然有助于解释为什么地球和月球的组成远比科学家先前期待的要相近得多的原因。 科学家同时在《自然》杂志上发表了另外两篇文章,报告了先前不为人知的月球岩石中存在的细微差别。 科学家表示,这些最新的研究结果就月球的形成提供了更为可信和清晰的信息。 以色列和法国科学家在他们的报告中模拟了内层太阳系形成早期的动荡历史,对可能发生的撞击进行了量化处理。 模拟显示,地球在早期可能受到其他可能成为太阳系行星的天体的一系列撞击。 在这一系列的撞击中,最后一次撞击来自一个质量大约是地球十分之一的行星天体,所产生的碎片最终结合在一起形成了月球。 科学家过去相信,构成月球的大部分物质应该来自于撞击地球的天体,而这样的天体成分应该同地球存在着巨大的差异。 但是,事实并非如此。 科学家承认,地球同月球成分的高度一致性是上述大撞击理论所面临的挑战。 参与这项最新模拟研究的科学家表示,撞击地球的行星很有可能具有同地球极为相似的组成,这使得科学家只能在月球材料中发现非常微小的差别。 参与这项研究的以色列科学家佩列茨(Dr Hagai Perets)说,“我们发现,许多撞击行星与被撞击行星的成分非常相近,就像地球与月球的成分一样相近。” …
