Rescued from fashion wilderness, the backpack is now the bag of choice for tastemakers around the world and the Revolver backpack from Flybird is a standout. Designed by Franky Boateng, who set up Flybird in the Netherlands in 2006, the Revolver is a chic daytime option, perfect for long-haul flights and day trips alike. Flybird originated when Boateng was homeless and made himself a leather wallet in which to carry all of his essentials, and the brand originally specialised in mini-bags. Today Boateng produces a variety of backpacks and purses, and we love the brand’s combination of vintage style with modern touches, such as the leather detailing and handle on the Revolver which make it pleasingly versatile. All Flybird products are made in the Netherlands and designed with the traveller in mind.
