cantina backpack fall 2010







Here is a sneak peak of one thing to come this fall - backpacks! And it's about time too. I've been working on this one for a few weeks, but this is not quite the final version of any of the ones I plan to be making at the end of the day, I still need to work a few things out. I was going for an asymmetric flap - and meant for it to be more angular than this - Jesse said it kind of ended up looking like a pug tongue...haha!

That may be the coolest backpack I've ever seen. & I'm a total fan of the "pug tongue" flap (although a more angular one would definitely be awesome too).

Whoa. This backpack is HOT. I love the asymmetry, despite the fact that it has tongue-like qualities.

What colour is that leather? It looks quite different in all of the shots (sometimes silver, other times taupe or grey).

maybe not what you want to end up with, but this is an amazing start, Julia! I am excited to see more :)

Pure awesomeness! Haha, pug tongue, I don't think it looks like that. I know you're not gonna stop till its' perfect though, I can't wait to see the final version!

btw I totally owe you an email...

That's gorgeous! Great job!

Wow! I love it, love how big but minimalistic it is. Assymetric flap looks great for me the way it is now! And the whole shape looks especially good when you keep bottom of the handbag - so it looks even wider.

The material's gorgeous! Definitely haven't seen a backpack like this out there, and we really are submerged in a wave of backpacks right now.

Love the outfit you have on too!

What a sweet pack! I was thinking that I loved the flap, then when I read the pug tongue comment I loved it more!

that is so kiiiiiiillllller! totally going to start saving my pennies now...and I love the asymmetrical flap...don't know what a pug's tongue looks like, since I try to stay away from those things, but I'll take his word for it!

What an awesome idea to make bag packs! They are so trendy right now so I am sure they will do well in your shop.
This one is just right size and of course I love the style - very rennes :-)

thank you sooo much everyone!!

simple things - it is a pewter leather - metallics are always so tricky to photograph!

When I first saw this I was i immediately thrown back to 15 years ago when I owned a silver backpack. I think the last one I've bought.
I love your necklace and wonder if you wouldn't mind letting me know who makes it.
Love your bags.

julia said...
