Ever so often I get emails from far-flung locales filled with promise and hope, bringing forth the senders’ best intentions (strangely I’m channeling the Joy Luck Club today). And today’s email happens to be from Bogotá, Columbia (the other side of the world as far as I’m concerned), from a new indie brand called Hasso.
Taking their time and expecting nothing but the best for their bags is the brand’s philosophy, and it can be seen in the meticulously crafted backpacks from their inaugural collection. Available in different finishes, each master artisan-crafted piece comes with all the usual bells and whistles, and from what I can see, oodles of style as well.
I’m particularly loving the one in green with tanned leather trim, but it also means I’ll need to get myself a bicycle to complete the look. And given the way drivers in Singapore operate their vehicles, I’m better off ensconced in my own taxi whenever I travel from point to point.
The Hasso Backpack collection should be available for sale soon once it officially launches, so consider this an exclusive first peek. Stay tuned for more updates.
