Fortunately thesedays, backpacks come in classic silhouettes, can be stylish and have a grown up influence, especially with the lusture of leather. I found so many functional sizes and colours in my search for the perfect backpack. I managed to narrow it down to these two due to the aesthetics of the bags, the quality of the leather and also after reading some glowing reviews. I figured these both look stylish and have the added bonus of being timeless since they are not too preppy and are rather subdued in solid conventional colours, so will match with almost any outfit.
A backpack is still an aspiration purchase for me and I would say a much needed one for a simplistic and casual, go anywhere bag for my laid back looks. It's a tough choice between these two. Both have earnt a place on my list, but realistically only one will make it to being purchased.
I love how the Alexander Wang Marti backpack has the zippers that allows the bag to expand or compress depending on how much you want to carry, and also how the back straps can zip together, enabling it be carried over one shoulder. It also has convertible straps (a long shoulder strap). The Marti really is ingenious in design and the creased, soft textured leather (including the toffee colour) is beautiful. The Theyskens Theory Ando Osfa backpack is that little more classic though and has great structure. Hmm... any thoughts or preference?
