When Gastonluga emailed me for collaboration, I was thinking why not? This just comes in time because I need a new backpack. Gastonluga backpacks are designed in clean and modern Swedish design. This is a Swedish backpack retailer brand from Stockholm, Sweden. I chose the Blue Praper Backpack which arrived within 5 days via DHL Express.
The story of Gaston Luga and the minimalistic backpacks took its start during a trip to a new continent, where our founder Carl Sundqvist met an interesting Frenchman with an elegant and casual style. Gaston told Carl he believed a backpack is the optimal companion when discovering the world. Since he was a person keen of his style, he had put time and effort into finding something different from the regular school style.
Finally he found himself an elegant Louis Vuitton, to which he had several modifications made. Making it more personal, functional and unique. Inspired after the meeting, Carl decided a few months later to create his own backpack brand with classic elegant style and practical details. Hopefully these would get to travel the world, just like Gaston.
The uniqueness of the Praper Backpack design is the strong metal hooks that are adjustable in four levels. There is a slot at the back of the backpack to equip with cards or passports. And the best part is that there is a metal feet at the bottom because most of the backpack does not have it. Apart from that, the shoulder straps are adjustable to so you can alter to your desired fit. The best part is that it comes with a dust bag for storage and protection. This is so much need to keep it clean and dust-free when I am not using it.
Further more, it is made high quality leather, metal and thick canvas. Thus, this explains the backpack is much heavier then other backpack. There is ample space inside the bag which is sufficient to stuff basic essentials for a day trip. However, I wouldn’t recommend it for travel backpack for day though.
The Praper bag is currently retailing at S$319.00. And good news to my readers!
