As the autumn starts arriving in the city, it’s time to change the summer bags to backpacks and bags suitable for the everyday life activities!

At its best, your favourite bag stays by your side from a day to another and transforms into many – from work to leisure and possibly even to weekend trips. We chose four bags that are truly multifunctional from our amazing designers. Check them out and choose your own favourite for the autumn activities!

Stylish backpack in two different sizes


The Simile backpack represents the work of a Spanish accessory brand Ácrata and is available in two different sizes. The larger backpack is perfect for everyday use and comes with a padded pocket for a laptop. Whereas the stylistically identical smaller backpack is a great alternative for leisure and evening adventures. The backpacks are manufactured from high-quality leather locally in Spain.

The clean lines of Ácrata get their inspiration from architecture and traditional craftsmanship. The bags are both practical and stylish design pieces that you can carry with you everywhere. The pure elements of the products emphasize the soul and uniqueness of the products. Ácrata’s goal is to turn everyday objects into works of art!

Modifiable leather bag for urban life


The cognac-coloured KOKO bag is a combination of three bags that converts from a briefcase to a shoulder bag and a backpack. So, all the bags you need in an urban life can be found in the same package! The secret of the modifiability lies in the adjustable strap – with one shoulder strap the bag acts as a shoulder bag and with two it will be a comfortable-to-carry backpack. The bag made of vegetable tanned cow leather comes with a separate pocket for a laptop. 

The timeless and stylish products of MOIMOI remain your favourites from a season and a year to another. The products of the traditional brand age beautifully emphasizing their unique design.
