Fashionable Backpacks: Introducing the Letterbox Rucksack

Remember when backpacks were only seen on geeky school children? Those days are over.

Bring on the luxe-sack, the new chic generation of fashionable backpacks designed for grown-up fashionistas.

There's no denying that the rucksack has made a fashionable comeback of late, finding its way onto the catwalk, as well as onto the backs of an army of style icons and celebrities, including Cara Delevingne and Kanye West to name but a few.

This season Aspinal introduces the Letterbox Rucksack, the perfect marriage of style and practicality. Available for spring/summer in smooth black and deer saffiano with signature 'letterbox' hardware, the Letterbox Rucksack was made for work and play.

The deer colour is fresh for spring/summer and adds some ladylike sophistication to the rucksack. Saffiano leather is also extremely hard-wearing. Our classic black rucksack is relaxed and practical but full of attitude- ideal for staying chic whilst on the move.

If you're not a backpack-convert by now, it gets better. With a backpack on your back, you have free hands to use your phone, scan your oyster card and go shopping with ease. Your bag will also feel a lot lighter than one carried on one shoulder.

Are you a fan of the luxe-sack? Which colour will you choose?
