BJ Pascual is as stylish as his fashion photographs. The photographer is a lover of style both in front and behind the camera, and has developed a distinct personal style that’s undeniably unique, always on trend, and unapologetically genderless. BJ isn’t a fan of labels when it comes to fashion and is a firm believer that you can wear whatever you want no matter your gender. We’re all for that and that’s one of the reasons we really enjoyed his episode of Designer Favorites.
In the video, BJ talks about his favorite luxury purchases and his black bags stood out, according to the comments section. Most designer black bags would have contrasting hardware in gold or silver but BJ’s picks where beautifully all black with matching matte or chrome black clasps. So if you’re eyeing a designer bag to fit into your all-black wardrobe, here are his favorites below:
Dior Saddle Pouch
BJ describes this version of the Saddle Bag as the one that fits his frame the best, and that smaller bags worn around his chest make him appear taller.

Louis Vuitton Soft Trunk
This matte-black petite leather trunk is absolutely heavenly, and BJ definitely thinks so, too. He admits that this is his most expensive purchase so far, but is quite worth it since it goes with almost any outfit.

Dior Roller Messenger Bag
This bag didn’t make it to the video but one commenter pointed out that the photographer would frequently wear the bag on his Instagram, and BJ actually replied saying, “I used to use it a lot! But after I bought the Dior Saddle [pouch] I kind of stopped using it!” Nonetheless, this cylindrical messenger bag is as stylish and blogger David Guison has one, too!
