I can honestly say that I have never been this excited about a backpack before. You know how sometimes one does not know they need something until they get it? Yep, that was the feeling I got when I first received my Caxton Sport backpack from Eddie.
I have always been a duffel or messenger/briefcase bag user due to may style of dress. I thought using the above two types of bags was the true essence of the smart or smart-casual look I always wanted. I am unashamed to say that I was wrong and I have my Caxton Sport backpack by Eddie Handmade to thank for that.
Pieced together in Florence, Eddie is a British based leather goods designer with an incredible attention to details. Their leather goods are made with natural cowhide and calf leather sourced in Italy. Eddie is a premium label reflecting a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance, focusing on practicality and streamlined designs.
Handmade with calf leather, the Caxton sport backpack is a must have for anyone who wants to be trendy but smart looking individuals. Apart from the soft feel of the leather, the design of the bag is beautifully done with one pocket inside the main compartment and two sleek ones on the outside giving a smart and classy look to the bag.
Fresh from the manufactures a few weeks ago, I decided to take my new backpack for a spin (as it were) during London Fashion Week Men’s SS18. True to form, I was able to carry so many things in it to include my Canon 80 Camera and extra lens.
The Navy tailored suit with white shirt set the base for the entire look. The suit and white shirt by themselves are quite generic. I could have easily slipped into a pair of brogues or oxford shoes paired with a red patterned tie and I would have been ready for a job interview or indeed the office. However, to inject a playful element to the look, I opted for a pair of yellow and white trainers with a yellow tie. With the Caxton on my back, I was indeed ready for day two of London Fashion Week Men’s.
