Preview AW17: City Backpacks

The humble backpack is not relegated anymore to school days or walks in the countryside. Now you can find very stylish backpacks from designer pieces to high street stores and they fit perfectly in our busy lives when you need to have hands free because your driving a scooter or pushing a pram, among other activities. I've picked few nice backpacks while visiting press events.
*In Store*  You have to look for this gorgeous Next rose gold rucksack in the kids department and it is just a smaller size compared with an adult rucksack that makes all the difference. The adjustable straps can be taken to an adult proportion and with its metallic shine will be great for a night out or just for everyday use.
*In Store*  After rose gold we've got silver for the Farore rucksack with patches by Aldo. It is made of faux leather  with adjustable straps and an external zipped pocket for small essentials or if you don't want to put valuables you can store glasses and lipstick with mirror.
*In Store* I like the Drome rucksack by Dune. Made of faux leather, it has shoulder straps, a magnetic fastening and the double zips at the bottom fasten a compartment where you can put an umbrella so that it won't be together with your stuff. It is available in taupe as well.
*In Store* Orange is one of my favourite colours so when I've seen this beautiful  Blake backpack at Jigsaw I could not resist. It is made of felted wool and leather shoulder straps and details. The backpack is unlined with leather drawstring as a fastening. Here it has been matched with a pair of Olivia trainers in felted wool with white rubber sole.
*Not Yet*  Keep an eye for this lovely velvet backpack by Matalan. It can be the perfect night out bag when going to a club so that you can dance the night away without worrying about leaving your bag on the floor or at the cloakroom. Also it is a great bag for an everyday use. I like the bow and the external zipped pocket where to put small things without rummaging inside while looking for a lipstick or glasses. Check its arrival in store at
*In Store*  This " Monkey" backpack by Paul Smith is amazing. You can find it in the Men' s department but I think it is unisex with its bold colours and the monkey print on canvas with leather trim details. Shop it at any Paul Smith boutique or wait for its arrival at Liberty. Check where its stores are located at
*Not Yet* If you like purple and fluffy, this mini backpack by River Island is for you. At the moment is available a black version made of feathers with a zip around fastening, handle and shoulder strap. It is a fun bag, great for a night out or just being a bit frivolous during the day. If purple is your colour check for its arrival at
