Founded in only 2009, Herschel has become a global affair, swarming the hipster population with their retro backpacks and accessories. This season Herschel have focused mostly on their "Little America", a large backpack with two buckles down the front, including a 15'' padded laptop sleeve.
The new range introduces a variety of colours featuring cool green and off-white mixes with blue hues and of course a standard black, creating a colour to suit every occasion and to fit anybody's personal style. So whether it will be used for work, school or just general use, Herschel have got you covered with their new laptop bags that are both tactical backpacks as well as being bang on trend this season.
Having a job that entails using a laptop on a daily basis means I need a casual bag that will easily cope with fitting everything I need in. I love how Herschel bags allow me to bring my laptop into work in a fashionable and comfortable way instead of lugging around your average laptop carry case.
We're excited for the new range of Rains bags, a contemporary brand that was in fact developed by two students back in 2011. This season Rains have chosen to produce bags with a sophisticated and structured aesthetic, our favourites being the "Field Bag" and "Utility Bag".
Due to the simplistic yet sleek design, the Field Bag is perfect for day-to-day, with a 13'' laptop compartment and front zip section, making it not overly big but still the perfect size for your daily essentials. The Utility collection is slightly bigger in size, with a 15'' laptop compartment and a drawcord closure - ideal for an over night bag or could even be used for a camping trip. The entirety of Rains' new range sticks to very low-key colours such as greys, light blues and dark greens that aren't too in your face if you're a more of a neutral person when it comes to accessories.
I love how subtle and sophisticated Rains bags are since I am able to use them not only for casual wear but also pair them with something smart. The Field Bag is very practical, being the perfect size for whatever your day throws at you - I'm very impressed.
The Idle Man
This season at The Idle Man, we've introduced our new range of Heritage backpacks, available in navy, burgundy and black. The design is very classic yet trendy, allowing it to be used for many different occasions such as school or casual wear. With extra padded shoulder and back straps, this backpack is going to be very comfortable for an all-day wear as well as protecting your goods.
Here at The Idle Man we know that our customers love a classic, simplistic look that can be worn for many occasions. I love the Heritage backpack as it is so substantial and the colours are all very wearable with many different styles.
On That Note
Although it may not seem like a key part of an overall look, bags and accessories in general can make or break an outfit. Take this opportunity to check out our new ranges to choose the perfect bag to suit you and your lifestyle.
