'Bag on Trend' - Sleek Backpacks

🕤 4 min read

I don’t know if you have heard, but here at Pure Luxuries London, we are a little bit obsessed with bags. Summer had us infatuated with crossbody phone bags and beach-approved oversized totes, autumn saw us loving laid-back slouch bags and now, I think we have found the perfect leather companions to see us through winter.

This season, backpacks are showing us they are not just practical, but also beautifully sleek and stylish. Backpacks are perfect for staying organised during the dreaded Christmas shop, carting around all those gifts to family and friends, and even carrying your gym gear (or snacks. Snacks trump gym gear IMO). 

Here are some of our favourite backpacks to see you through the festive season… P.S. forget bottles of wine, you could fit an entire box of wine in these bad boys.

‘Elland’ Grey Leather Backpack

Let’s start things off with the stunning ‘Elland’ leather backpack from the Pure Luxuries London Couture Collection in versatile grey. Available in six different colours to match every outfit, the ‘Elland’ is effortlessly chic, spacious and practical. 

Featuring a zip pocket to the front and an internal slip pocket for plenty of storage options when you are on the go, “Elland” has got your back!

‘Iiford’ Dark Tan Leather Backpack

Looking for something a little different but equally as practical and versatile? The ‘Iiford’ backpack in Dark Tan from the Cultured London Eco Collection boasts a unique design with ample storage space. 

In fact, you have all been loving this design in Dark Tan so much that they have almost sold out! Fear not though, we also have ‘Iiford’ available in Rich Chestnut and black!  Simple, elegant and, you guessed it, bag on trend!

‘Daisy’ Blue Cloud Leather Backpack

Now for my personal favourite, the ‘Daisy’ backpack in the stunning colour Blue Cloud is super spacious, adjustable and expandable, perfect for carrying everything you need throughout the day.

Blue is the ‘in’ colour this season, however, ‘Daisy’ is also available in eight different colours, from rich Pomegranate to Blush Pink (that is a different colour for every day of the week and one extra for luck!).

‘Francisca’ Conker Brown Leather Backpack

A little smaller than our previous favourite, but equally as practical and beautiful! I love the vintage vibes that ‘Francisca’ in Conker Brown is giving, but for those who would like a pop of colour, you can choose from nine different shades!

From the Conkca Originals Collection, ‘Francisca’ is an understated classic that will be equally as stylish in years to come (and the squirrel is super cute!).

‘Marbury’ Vintage Black Leather Backpack

Black isn’t always boring - the ‘Marbury’ backpack from the Pure Luxuries London Vintage Collection features a quirky zip-around top creating a distinctive silhouette, adding a little edge to every outfit. 

‘Marbury’ isn’t just a pretty face! The unique design is perfect for piling your Christmas shopping into and keeping it stylishly secure while you are out and about this festive season.

‘Rubens’ Cherry Leather Backpack

Be bold and make a statement with the ‘Rubens’ backpack in festive Cherry red from the Pure Luxuries London Gold Collection. While this gorgeous colour is perfect for adding a little Christmas cheer to your outfit this season, it will also add a playful touch to your wardrobe all year round.  

I adore this vintage-inspired shade of red, however, if you are looking for something a little more versatile, the ‘Rubens’ backpack is also available in six different colours, so you can find the right shade for you!

‘Alps’ Black Leather Backpack

I'm not forgetting about the gentlemen this time around! The ‘Alps’ backpack from the Cultured London City Collection is the perfect companion to keep your belongings safe and secure throughout the day. 

For the commute to work, a festive weekend away or delivering Christmas gifts to loved ones, this spacious and stylish design will keep you organised and looking dapper!
