Easily one of my favourite bags from F/W13 as far as the boys are concerned, the Raf Simons + Eastpak Satin Backpack is a minimalist’s dream, a soft, silky backpack that has nothing of the fuss, just beautiful clean lines.
Measuring 42 cm in height by 29 cm across, the unisex satin backpacks come in 4 colours/combos, Purple, Navy and striped in Navy/Brown and White/Black. Most definitely lightweight (how heavy can satin be?), I only worry about two things. How much weight it’ll take before it gives way, and will the satin need extra maintenance to prevent it from looking less than pristine over time (do I have to steam iron it?).
And to find out, I probably have to get one for myself; I’ll just need to decide for myself which one. Priced rather affordably, check out Oki-Ni for all 4 designs where they sell for GBP145 each, or Mr Porter for just the solid hues where they go for GBP155.
Which one will you go for?
