A backpack that’s actually stylish
The Future of Frances Watson, one of our favourite new Parkdale shops, has just brought in a shipment of these beautiful calfskin backpacks. Known for its modern takes on vintage looks, U.K. designer Grafea makes bags that feature outstanding construction and high-quality leather. Available in a range of colours, these backpacks work equally well as a gift for your stylish little one or, in the smaller version, as a throwback to those mini-pack purses that were ubiquitous in the ’90s. $198–$245.
