With the midst of winter upon us, we're looking for one of two weekend getaways: the beach or the mountains. And what every good weekend warrior needs, whether playing in sand or snow, is a good weekend bag.
A.P.C.'s option -- though called a sac, of course -- is perfect in its simplicity and functionality. It's not covered in pockets and zippers, but chicly classic, the perfect size and duffle shape to open up, toss in a few choice pieces and throw over your shoulder for a jaunt off to some place that will allow you to escape whatever it is you need to get away from.
The A.P.C. navy week-end bag retails for $230 and is available by mail order (212.966.0069), at www.apc.fr, or in stores in New York (131 Mercer Street, 212.966.9685) or Los Angeles (619 N. Croft Avenue, West Hollywood, 323.297.0414
