Back to school, back to uni, what better time than August for Converse to launch its FIRST ever dedicated bag and accessories collection. However you don't have to be a student to appreciate the iconic brand's latest offerings, no no, DJs, stylists and celebrities are already cooing over the stylish new arrivals. In line with Converse's footwear collection, the bags all offer a versitile simplicity in design, with the infamous Chuck Taylor All Stars logo dominating the range to give this fresh collection a somewhat vintage feel. Yet with a wide range of styles on offer, from retro duffels, street-smart messenger bags and gym sacks to the classic backpack, reflecting the diversity of the brands huge following, there is definitely something to suit everyone.
Converse's debut bag and accessories collection goes on sale this month and can be found at Schuh, Blackleaf and JD Sports. Having been fortunate enough to get a sneak preview of the collection last month, the white duffel (a perfect nod to A/W 11's American College trend) and the retro blue messenger are my personal favs...but don't take my word for it, scroll down and have a look for yourselves!
