New Accessories for Men: R.I.P. the “Murse”

It’s 2022, which means we no longer must define a bag by the gender of the person wearing it. Murses are dead and every other previously deemed “women’s accessory” is alive; jewelry, hats, sunglasses, belts, chains, scarves, and bags are fair game. And judging by the influx of new products on Impakter Eco, men are playing to win.
