In an unusual collaboration, Japanese luggage and accessories specialists Porter have teamed up with British footwear brand Pointer to produce a capsule collection for the autumn/winter 2012 season.
The collection consists of two items; the Rigby Backpack and the Tanker Wallet. Although both pieces are superb, it is the Rigby backpack that we would like to draw your attention to today.
Based upon a European military design from the 1940s, the reworked silhouette is brought bang up to date with the inclusion of corduroy detailing. Tough, practical, durable and stylish, the inclusion of the rich green corduroy front pocket not only adds interest but a textural dimension to your look.
With coloured canvas and leather having also been worked into the design, it gives this grown up backpack a fresh and contemporary feel.
Coming in a deep navy, tan leather trims not only highlight specific segments, such as fastenings, but also work on a practical level – reinforcing parts of the design which are sure to undergo load stress.
Other details include: Adjustable quilted backpack straps (again adding texture), rear mobile phone pocket with zipped vertical pocket, as well as benefiting from being lined in Porter’s classic safety orange canvas.
Retailing at £355 over at Coggles, this is one limited edition piece worth saving up for.
