5 beach totes: pack up and go in style

cchapman Luggage & Travel, Top Five Leave a Comment

5_bags.jpg

With beach time and festivals ongoing, a pick of the best totes is timely. Topman continue to have some bang on-trend totes, this lion playing card print would look great with a foppish English garden party ensemble. Or try the acid Aztec print for a MGMT/summer festival psychedelic spin. Speaking of Williamsburg, the Brooklyn idyll’s other favourite sons, Yeasayer, have this lovely hand print denim tote available from their merchandise site. Prefer back straps to shouldering a flimsy tote bag? This steel wire backpack from Manufactum is from an original Bauhaus design and will make you look arty (just make sure your reading material is suitably highbrow – Grazia just won’t do). If you really need to lug a load of stuff around with you, Uniqlo have very affordable cute backpacks in some perky colours.
