The first week in September is always a bad time to go shopping; the shops are hectic with parents desperately trying to buy last minute supplies for their children – stationery, shoes, uniform but most importantly (in my opinion) school bags!
Although the fashion for school bags changes every year, there have always been a few classics; the rucksack, the messenger and the satchel. If you haven’t managed to find your perfect school bag yet, then look no further than this blog as below are my top three school bags:
1. The Sturdy Rucksack – The great thing about this Vida Vida Large Leather 3 in 1 Backpack is its versatility; if you cycle to school you can keep it out of the way as a rucksack, and during your day you can then use it over your shoulder as a satchel or even as a briefcase using the top handle. As well as being practical, with loads of space and a laptop sleeve, this leather bag is beautifully made and can be used by girls and boys alike, and if you want a bit more originality while still following your school’s rules this is definitely the way to go.
2. The Manly Messenger – This Large Black Leather Messenger is a new addition to the Vida Vida family, but although the beautiful black leather wasn’t an original feature of our bags, it is definitely here to stay. This bag is a favourite among men and is perfect for school as it can fit a laptop, along with folders, books and all your bits and pieces, while still looking awesome – this is definitely a must-have for you if you want a classic, simple style with a modern twist.
3. The Classic School Satchel – Last but definitely not least, my personal favourite for school is this Special Leather laptop Bag, which not only looks gorgeous, but can fit a laptop and ring binder along with all the necessities to keep you going throughout the day. There are no more excuses for using a boring tote bag, this leather satchel is just as practical, has way more space and is a lot more original – the clear winner for someone who always has their style on their mind, even while working hard.
Oh, and remember that all our bags come in various sizes and with various options so there is bound to be the perfect school bag there for you or that special darling son or daughter.
