In the ongoing pursuit of my perfect teenage heart/adult brain balance, these Raf Simons x Eastpak silk backpacks feel like a good solution.
All the Tippex-scrawled, bum-slung joy of an Eastpak rucksack, all the grown-up silky sophistication of Raf Simons. Slinky meets structure. Skateboarding grunger meets srs grown-up.
Black and white stripes instinctively appeal, of course – they’d match my knee-high socks; one pink, one black, natch – but there’s something alluring about that damson shade that’s luring me out of my purple-phobia.
They’re £145, exclusively at Selfridges.
