The Material Boy #586

Below: Carven and Japanese accessories label, Porter has collaborated for a collection of functional and chic bags that embodies the best of French style and Japanese know-how... Love this botanical print version... Very summer cool!

Carven x Porter Collaboration Backpacks For Spring Summer 2013

Carven menswear has made french cool accessible and wearable. It is no surprise they are ramping up their accessories line to keep up with their highly successful ready to wear collection. For Spring Summer 2013, the brand has collaborated with Japanese accessories label, Porter for functional and chic backpacks that take their easy wearable aesthetics to a new level.

Combining Japanese know-how and french sense of style, these backpacks are not your conventional designs. Carven and Porter used an interesting mix of materials and textures, from quilted nylon to tweeds to printed botanical prints to evoke schoolboy charm while staying functional. The multiple exterior pockets, the no frills detailings are testament to this.

The backpacks features a buckle fastening front flap, fabric adjustable back straps with a matching top handle. There's a drawstring closure to secure your belongings while quilted fabric lining on the insides in bright accent colour that make the bag visually exciting inside and out.

I want the botanical printed version as featured in the lookbook (Euro653)!

Oki-ni is selling the backpacks for £504. Much cheaper than Matches and The Corner.
