I discovered a wonderfully talented bag-designer based in London. The 'classic' collection reminds me of an ancient BOAC bag that my parents kept the family photographs in, so the styling has a slightly 1960's retro feel that appeals to me. The block colours are framed with a pale tape binding that makes them pop and lends the range a smart and structured appearance. Styles are practical and multi-pocketed to suit contemporary lifestyles with a Shopper, Backpack, Mini-Backpack and the fantastic Messenger Pannier, which will convert from a regular work-bag to one that fits on a bicycle and also comes with a padded laptop bag - the perfect hybrid. I have also invested in an eco-selection of roll-top backpacks made from recycled water bottles and these too will attach to a bicycle if you own one or just behave like an excellent, practical and voluminous backpack if not.
