This week’s lust item is the gorgeous ‘Grafea Exclusive Leather Backpack’ (available from ASOS) which retails at £165. Backpacks are so practical around campus, especially for dragging heavy books to and from the library. However, it’s the fact that this bag is leather that makes it a real bonus as it means it will be waterproof and so much more durable than a pleather version from the high street.
There is some really stunning detailing on this bag, especially the contrast tan strap, although the real beauty of this piece is its utter simplicity, therefore, it will go with everything! Wear this bag with jeans, a vintage jumper and some brogues and you have instantly perfected a classic look.
We understand not everyone can afford to spend this much on an accessory, but with the holiday season coming up maybe it’s time to invest in a chic new bag in time for the New Year or possibly just add it to the Christmas wish list.
