COS canvas and leather trim backpack

walked past regent street last night and saw this window display at COS. i am usually against grown men wearing backpacks to work (i just think it's wrong), but i find myself very drawn to this display. the leather trimmings made the bag all the more stylish. i harboured the thought of abandoning my rules, and getting it myself!

backpacks were rather prominently featured during the spring summer 2010 shows. burberry prorsum did a really nice brown leather backpack, while louis vuitton featured a delicious grey ostrich number.

  2. I bought this thing nearly 6 weeks ago, directly when it arrived...

    nice piece, I love it... as long there is nothing heavy inside. it's more a fashion piece and not very practical.

  10. it's a very heavy material. and a lot details are done wrong... the harness/belts (now not better word for it) end on the wrong places, they bear into the back even when it's empty.... they should ask someone to try things like this, before produce it... maybe me :-)

    but after all, I love the bag!
