The back to school season trends you need to know about to cope with the back-to-reality blues.
When you find yourself putting away those colourful summer outfits to make space for knits and closed shoes, you know it’s almost back to school season. This year, for those like us who are based in the UK, the idea of stepping back into the office feels even harder.
Let’s face it, this summer has been very unusual and we have not really enjoyed any of it. Am I right? But there’s something about this time of the year, almost like the “quiet before the storm” kind of feeling, the expectation and excitement of a fresh start, that puts us right in the mood for some autumn-friendly shopping.
And there is nothing that freshens up an office/school look more than a NEW BAG.
We don’t mean just any bag, but the one that will be able to withstand the weight of all the stuff we know we’re going to take with us on a daily basis.
Talking about the latest back-to-school trends, it’s undeniable the return of the leather backpack, in all its shapes and sizes, alongside the evergreen carryall bags like shoppers and totes.
So, whether you are starting a new semester at university and need a large handbag to carry your laptop and books, or maybe a busy woman who needs a bag to reflect her dynamic lifestyle, or a business man who loves a mix of practicality and style, you’ll find your perfect match in our collection.
Ready to find your new favourite? Let’s take a closer look.
With its unisex features, a backpack is one of those bags that works for anyone. These leather backpacks are made of strong hard-wearing leather able to resist both heavy weights and bad weather. Which makes them perfect for anyone always on the go and who needs to carry lots of stuff with them. and if they ever get wet, just make sure to pat down the water excess on the leather and use a specific leather conditioner to ensure the material doesn’t dry and wrinkle.

SATCHEL BAGS: Back to school is cool
