Recently I’ve been carrying around many things during the day which made it highly impractical to squeeze everything into a handbag. This made me switch from a handbag to backpacks, which might not be as chic but much more convenient and healthier for your shoulders and back to carry around. Even though I was quite happy with my Kånken backpack by Fjaellraeven, I was looking for something more practical and stumbled across the Swiss brand QWSTION. Their goal is to create bags for people in a modern environment that close the gap between functional sports bags and elegant fashion bags. The focus is put on the integration of functionality and each products offers various carrying options – meaning that your backpack isn’t just a backpack. Every product is a hybrid product that can be converted to suit your lifestyle. So to say, their collection is positioned inbetween high-fashion and functional utility and each bag works for business as well as for leisure – and exactly this was why I wanted to get one of their bags (and because a colleague already owned one and I loved it!). I decided to get their Tote in Washed Black which can be carried both as tote or backpack. It offers enough space to even carry around your laptop if needed. This tote is just one of many products that range from wallets to laptop cases to shoppers. Go and check our their fantastic collection!
