When’s a black backpack not just a black backpack? When it’s an Alexander Wang Explorer Backpack, of course. Taking something as ordinary as a simple backpack and giving it a spin that ends up being so detailed is no mean feat, especially when it looks so simple (and dare I say, plain?) at first glance.
Part cowhide, part suede, the black tone-on-tone backpack packs a lot of surprises of its own, from the large zipped opening on the top that’s easily concealed by the front flap, as well as allowing both sides of the zip opening to be clipped down at both sides of the backpack, giving you not just 1, but 2 layers of security especially if you’re out and about sightseeing in the region.
Then there are the more ergonomic bits, from the slightly padded backpack straps to the top handle for ease of use, as well as interior pockets galore, including a large zipped pocket on the inside for a small laptop or cash and passports, depending on what you’ll need it for.
Priced at USD1050 (or around SGD1300 after conversion), you could get the 33 cm by 48 cm backpack online via Alexander Wang where they do ship internationally. Handsome, functional, plus it won’t burn too huge a hole in your pocket, which means this could be the one you could be rewarding yourself with this Christmas. Or ladies, if you’re reading this, a great gift for your men as well this festive season.
