With only three more weeks until the start of school, it’s with great excitement that we release our Back to School range complete with brand new boys’ and girls’ backpacks and stationery.

This season sees retro mountaineering knapsacks in bold colour brights line up against subtle urban designs. From adventure ready packs to school bag champions, our collection of boys’ backpacks fuse signature prints and retro feels with serious stowage and dependable durability.

Wanderlust vibes dominate this season’s girls’ backpack collection. With simplified shapes, retro-inspired palettes and vintage vibes, these bags bring max functionality, whether you’re out seeking new adventures or heading back to school.

For autumn, we’re also introducing two brand new unisex styles made for adventure: the Trekker and Roadtripper backpacks. We’re loving the retro vibes and colours, and hope they’ll inspire you to carve your own path and embark on an adventure of your own. Make sure you get your homework done first though!
