Drawing on cafe-owner roots, Property Of bag designers Peter Teo and Richard Chamberlain recently launched the brand's first flagship, a "store in a cafe," on Amsterdam's fashion-forward Herenstraat Street.

In addition to peddling the Singapore brand's well-crafted line of shoulder bags and accessories, the outpost will house an array of like-minded magazines and books while serving up Stumptown coffee—as the increasingly popular roaster continues to expand beyond its Portland, OR hometown.

Highlighted here last year for their collaboration with Pendleton Woolen Mills, the label traditionally uses waxed cotton, coated denim or heavy nylon for their range of urban-inspired bags.

Property Of sees the Amsterdam location as the beginning of an expansion program that will lead to shops in Singapore, New York and Tokyo over the following months.
