For years, I have been unsuccessfully trying to persuade Caryn to give up her backpack. Here’s her rationalization for walking around town with her frumpy outdated bag – it frees up her hands and she can carry lots of stuff in lots of separate compartments. Basically, it is too practical to give up. Having said that, Caryn also covets a well designed, stylish, luxury handbag. Finally, Alexnder Wang has created exactly that – the Marti Backpack. I must admit, I may be a convert.
These buttery lambskin leather Alexander Wang Marti backpacks mix luxe and utilitarian elements. A wraparound zip gusset expands the exterior, which is outfitted with zip pockets. The shoulder straps can be zipped together for single-shoulder wear, while an optional strap converts the bag into a tote. A zip pocket details the main flap, which unsnaps to reveal a buckled, gathered opening. Lined interior with 1 zip pocket. Dust bag included.
This very well may be the perfect backpack. I am sending Caryn this link today. The holidays are quickly approaching and she should definitely pin this to her holiday gift wish list.
