Bag it up with the Timo Weiland Camo x Polka Dot Denim Backpack
Back in junior high, you probably couldn’t wait to toss your clunky backpack and trade it in for a big girl bag: a leather-trimmed straw tote, a leather or canvas messenger bag or even an oversize purse. But, this season, you might find yourself aching to go hands-free with a backpack that’s so chic, it will make your satchel-, hobo- and clutch-rocking friends want to follow the collegiate path again. True to the brand’s playful attitude, Timo Weiland has crafted a backpack that mixes and matches patterns and textures for a modern and undeniably adult feel.
The Timo Weiland Camo x Polka Dot Denim Backpack ($199 at Shop.TimoWeiland.com) features the padded shoulder straps we associate with sporty backpacks, but the straps’ camouflage print gives them an urban sensibility while the slimmer black suede strip along the center of each strap adds a dose of sophistication. The backpack has a rounded top edge with a zippered closure that extends from one side to the next, with black leather panels along the lower part of each side for a sleek edge. Made primarily with a camouflage print canvas material, the backpack features a roomy rectangular pouch pocket made with a polka dot print denim material and a top flap adorned with tan-colored pony hair to create an enticing textural juxtaposition.Two black leather straps run along the top of this pouch pocket, securing it in place, while also creating a dressier, more polished overall look.
Who knew camouflage and polka dots could work so well together?
