Duffer of St George Spring 2013 Backpack Collection
Having previously showcased the Duffer of St George SS13 lookbook a few weeks back, we thought it was only fitting to give you a closer, more detailed look at the brand’s latest offerings – in the form of their spring/summer 2013 backpack collection.
Providing customers with a highly affordable range of stylish yet practical backpacks, this collection offers something for everyone. Colour-blocking and striking bold colour options have been created for those who want to make a statement and maximise attention, whilst those who prefer their accessories more subtle can pick from timeless hues and traditional embellishments such as leather piping and trims.
The two styles from this collection that have made it on to our shortlist this season are the ‘Oakdale’ and ‘Rochester’.
The ‘Oakdale’ features a traditional backpack silhouette that has been brought bang up to date via contemporary colour ways. Available in a variety of different hues – from blue and burgundy to green and black – It was the squash orange hue which immediately caught the team’s attention.
With orange set to become a major colour trend this spring/summer, having been seen on both the high fashion runways and in recent high street collections, this bold backpack is an effortless way of integrating the trend into your day to day look. And with the inclusion of contrasting brown accents, it only enhances the overall aesthetic.
The ‘Rochester’ on the other hand follows a more refined, grown-up aesthetic. Featuring one main compartment with an adjustable drawstring closure (concealed with a buckle fastening flap), it is again finished with contrasting brown leather. Whether you choose the striking red hue or opt for a subtle shade of grey, this backpack is a winner.
With the collection retailing between £20-£30 dependent upon style, you really can’t go wrong this season. Available now, only at JD Sports.
