Αυτό το καλοκαίρι είναι ώρα να αγοράσετε ένα σακίδιο!

Να ταξιδευει καποιος, δημιουργει ανησυχίες και άγχος για αυτον τον λογο ένα σακίδιο θα βοηθησει να μιοσης και να ξαλαφρωσεις απο τα μη αναγκαια πραγματα. Επιπροσθετα θα εχεις και τα δυο σου χερια αδεια!

Summers coming, meaning that most of us will be packing our bags and leaving for a hot and tropical country. However holidaying also means stress of airport and packing.

In airports I find myself breaking out into sweats trying to remove my laptop from my suitcase, packing my liquids into tiny plastic bags, juggling my boarding pass and passport all while lugging my over weight carry on suitcase through duty free wanting to buy something that I clearly don’t need and will probably never use, all whilst vowing that next holiday I will pack lighter.

However the answer is buy a backpack, which will force you to pack lighter…. And convince yourself to leave that new writing book you’ve bought at home because you’re probably not going to start a diary or start writing a novel whilst your holidaying in Greece or Hawaii.

Many women hate the idea of carrying a backpack due to the fact that it will make them look like a school kid all over again or an over enthusiastic annoying tourist who bustles past you wacking everyone in their path.

However there are some backpacks that look chic and cool and make you look like the latest instagram kid!

Designer Backpacks 

Us women are obviously drawn to the designer products that will most likely burst the bank and leave us feeling guilty.

Fendi Backpack

Mostly an item targeted to the younger generation, the Fendi backpack adds a quirky and fun side to your wardrobe. The large backpacks retail for around £1500 whilst the mini (3rd) retails for around £1000.

Chanel Backpack

Like most Chanel products when the backpack was released on the Chanel catwalk, fashion lovers went mad. Everyone wanted to get their hands on one, if they had £3000 to spend on a canvas backpack. This is a bag you can’t just stroll into a Chanel shop and purchase…the waiting list for the bag is long!

Gucci Backpack

The Gucci Bamboo Leather Backpack (pink and white below) is a beautifully designed leather backpack that comes in a range of colours with bamboo hard wear. It is a classier and tame backpack compared to both the Chanel and Fendi backpacks. However in true Alessandro Michele style (the creative director) the GG Marmot leather Backpack which retails for £1400 (top right) shows a more fun and colourful side to Gucci.

Louis Vuitton Backpack

Throughout Vuitton’s history there has been a number of backpacks created. However recently under Nicholas Ghesquiere a new backpack has been released called the Palm Spring Backpack in mini, medium MM and large size PM.(left) If you love the Louis Vuitton monogram this is the backpack for you.The Bosphore Backpack (right) has been a classic LV product for many years.

Stella McCartney Falabella Backpack

The Falabella bag by Stella McCartney was on all fashion bloggers radar. It was the hottest bag on the street and still is! McCartney took the classic Falabella bag and reinvented it into a backpack. What makes McCartney different is that her bags are all animal friendly, meaning that none of her products are made from leather or other animal materials.

However whilst we may all want a designer backpack sometimes our budget doesn’t always allow for it. There are still some beautiful non-designer backpacks out there, that won’t burst the bank and we will be less worried about throwing around on the beach.

Stella McCartney for Adidas Backpack

In 2004 Stella McCartney partnered with the sports brand Adidas and since then has been designing a Stella Sports line, which includes items from sports leggings to sports bags. In contrast to her high end designer brand which she tends to use neutral tones for, Stella Sports is full of colour and gives off a 'fun vibe'.

Zadig & Voltaire Backpack

Zadig & Voltaire are known for their edgy and grungy look. So if colour is not your thing why not go for one of these bags (which can be found in the men's section).

Asos Backpacks

If you don't want to spend a lot on a bag Asos is the place to go. Their stock is constantly changing and due to the fact that they take inspiration from high end designers (such as Fendi and Chanel) means that general shape and design are usually very similar to what we see on the catwalk and in designer stores.

& Other Stories Backpack

Being the sister company to Zara , &Other Stories products are usually great in quality as well as being good interpretations of what we are seeing coming down the catwalks at fashion week.
