You may not be a big-league CEO flying to another business meeting abroad (yet), but you can sure look the part as Michael Kors now offers its men's pieces in Manila.

The aviator shades-wearing designer has become a household name thanks to Project Runway, yet his breadth of work spans so much more than the reality show or the handbags your wife or sister desires. Kors is really known for his laid-back luxury style that mixes tailored and sporty pieces together.

His men's collection is pretty damn cool: Think strolling down Manhattan with smartphone in one hand and a latte in the other. Inspired by icons like Warren Beatty and Steve McQueen, his menswear peices are urban, modern, and luxe yet relatively affordable and easy to wear. It’s these elements that make his men's collection a fitting addition to the local style scene, especially those who want an entry to designer labels.

Pounding the pavement on the regular is no mean feat, especially when you’re hungry for success. Spacious and stylish, the Keith backpack has exactly what you need. The leather bag is designed to withstand the day’s elements and more. You may find yourself squeezing in a crowded train to get home on a rainy day, but at least you won’t have to worry about your bag. 

For The Creative

Michael Kors teamed up with New York City-based artist Candy Pratt for the Jet Set Grafitti backpack. A slight departure from his more austere designs, the bag features the same Kors silhouette, but with a more spirited aesthetic. The designer says he was inspired by the street art in the city when creating the decidedly younger and more urban look.

An update of the workday staple, the Harrison briefcase boasts of a textured crossgrain leather, as well as top handles and several pockets. If you’re catching a business flight, check in with the Harrison flight bag, with the same crossgrain leather, roomy interiors, and adjustable shoulder strap for a cool, jetsetter look. 

The Corporate Hotshot

Yes, killing the nine-to-five requires a bag that’s smart, sleek, and fuss-free, but that doesn’t mean sporting something stuffy and dated. The Odin slingpack's neoprene fabric gives a modern spin to the office bag. It also has an adjustable shoulder strap, allowing you to carry it in style.
