Get your fingers ready to hop on over to andrewcoimbra.com for this leather piece that’s made its way up my lust have list (especially since my birthday is a couple months away) this season!
Having an affinity for Canadian designers, (Andrew Coimbra needs no intro) – it’s exciting seeing two great Canadian brands partner on an update to a timeless classic – the leather back pack.
Founded in 2010 by designer Amy Malcolm out of her need to create a handbag that was both functional and aesthetically refined, Opelle was born. The leather handbags are conceptualized, crafted and produced in small batches in their Toronto studio with an emphasis on function and authenticity, every Opelle bag is thoughtful, responsible and unique handcrafted exclusively from top-grain natural leathers. Sourcing tanneries in Italy, Germany and Spain the brand uses leathers that are tanned using low-impact processes with a minimum of chemical processing. Skins are hand-chosen for softness & quality and hand-cut to maintain their individual character.
Adding his spin to the classic “Kanye” backpack from the Opelle Permanent Collection, the backpack becomes infused with Coimbra’s panache for seasonally customized graphic prints as showcased in the lining of the backpack. The high grade leather used on the backpack is embellished with embroidered roses; a fresh celebration of spring.
