Gola always keeps the retro flame burning, with the 1970s Gola Classics Chevron bags being a recent addition to the range.
The Chevron design was one used on bags by Gola back in the 1970s and it has brought it back primarily for use with its Redford messenger bag, which was probably the bag design most commonly seen when Chevron was used as a finish for bags.
The Redford is a bag I have written about in the past http://www.retrotogo.com/2018/03/gola-classics-6.html and when it comes to retro bags, is one of the most popular out there. Stick on a period-friendly design and it’s even more of a winner.
But the Chevron finish isn’t limited to that bag. Gola is getting good mileage out of it, adding it to other bags that might not be as retro in terms of the style/shape, but certainly look it when the new finish is applied.
So you can also get it on the larger Mitchum holdall, along with a couple of smaller bags – the pocket bag and the drawstring bag There’s even a modern-day rucksack with a retro makeover too.
All are available now at the Gola site and all are reasonably priced as well. £40 for the Redford messenger bags, £50 for the large holdall, £45 for the rucksack, £20 for the pocket bag and £15 for the drawstring bag.
All are available directly from the Gola website.
