Anyone remembers Russell from the movie Up? (Russell would definitely love that Donald Duck appliqué!) Well, how could anyone forget that over-enthusiastic boy whose very mission was to collect all the embroidered pins to complete his almost-filled pin sash? This Gucci backpack replete with appliqués would seem like the perfect camping backpack for him. It even has enough space on its body to pin on even more when his sash eventually runs out of space!
On a serious note though, the backpack is good enough for a day trip out, or the weekend, for that matter. It has several compartments and handy leather loops on the exterior, which makes for easy access and storage of an additional bag at the base. Beyond the two leather buckles, the bag opens via a nylon drawstring closure and is lined in cotton linen with a simple interior pocket to keep your important essentials. Comfort seems no problem with this one, with padded web straps and a thick mesh back to ease the shoulders and cushion the back.
What’s also interesting is the feature of several Gucci stores on the appliqués – to give the impression of a seasoned traveller. Priced at GBP2734 (around SGD4696 after conversion) and available now via Mr Porter, you can also head down to Gucci stores in Singapore and do a Russell after getting this backpack. ‘The wilderness must be explored!’
