Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen put backpacks back on the fashion map when their The Row label released an exotic alligator skin version last October. Despite its $39, 000 price tag the bag sold out, and we started to regard backpacks as serious style contenders rather than simply practical accessories for school kids.
Clava builds on the current popularity of the backpack with the Urban Survival. It will never go toe to toe with The Row’s exotic creation, but at just $250 it’s not meant to. Instead the Urban Survival is a luxury backpack at a price we can all afford.
Vachetta leather doesn’t have the same dramatic allure of patent alligator skin, but it’s buttery soft and very sophisticated. The neutral colors, including this classic tan, help the Urban Survival suit any situation. With so many designers creating backpacks with loud colors and prints, this more subdued alternative fills a more elegant niche.
While style is at the forefront, Clava doesn’t forget about the backpack’s practical roots. The Urban Survival has plenty of pockets, inside and out, and an ample amount of space. The drawstring gives the backpack a relaxed look, while the magnetic strap offers extra security. Side snaps help the Urban Survival collapse for easy storage, although a bag with such evergreen styling probably won’t be packed away for long!
The Urban Survival is a great representation of a modern backpack, an accessory which can take us from the classroom to the office.
