I carry backpacks a lot during the day. Wish I could come up with an inspiring reason to why I often look like I am re-living my schooling days’ uniform, but in all honesty they’re just so easy to throw (almost)everything in and fling over whilst going about and navigating day-to-day stuff. Evidence HERE, HERE and HERE.
On a mission to widen my range, I am crushing hard on the backpack game as seen in the Manhattan Portage campaign ads. The thirty years old brand is still growing stronger and has recently added South Africa amongst its impressive presence in over 500 retail locations in over 40 countries. These backpacks and a lot more styles like duffels, schoolbags, pouches, briefcases, tablet and computer sleeves, totes, flight bags, coin purses and, of course, several sizes of styles of detailed messenger bags, will be available at www.nycbags.co.za and I am beyond thrilled for my search for a classic baggie made with highest quality materials, superb construction and excellent craftsmanship. Talk about meeting all necessary points; durability, utility and of course simplicity in design.
