The SS17 collections made a strong case for hands-free accessories. Designers showed a penchant for practical bags, with many offering satchel-like styles slung across the back. The backpack remains a fashion favourite and brands such as Chloé, Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton and Chanel offered their interpretations of the classic model. Louis Vuitton’s new collaboration with artist Jeff Koons has created some of this season’s most desirable versions, with the brand redesigning its Palm Springs rucksack to feature Koons’s reproductions of classic works of art, including Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Vincent van Gogh’s Wheat Field with Cypresses. Perfect for weekend city breaks and a stylish choice for work, the rucksack is the ideal bag this summer. Take a look at our edit of the best designer backpacks for SS17 here.
