Campbell Cole – Annex back pack

November 30, 2015

Continuing on my new bag quest (which seems to be turing into a rucksack hunt, rather than any type of bag), this beauty caught my eye. It’s courtesy of Nottingham’s Campbell Cole and sits as part of their Annex collection.

Constructed entirely from soft grain, vegetable-tanned leather, it’s a much more luxurious affair than the Mismo bag I featured last week (and that’s not exactly lacking in quality either) but even though not as hard wearing as ballistic nylon, it should wear its age well as it develops a patina over time.

In terms of styling, it follows the same cues as the other pieces in the Annex collection, with the diagonal seams on the front and a very structured feel overall. Bag closure is via a roll top that’s fastened with a heavy-duty clip – indeed, hardware is top class throughout with Riri zips (with leather pulls) and black, high quality buckles used to keep with the premium theme.

Internally the bag features a slip pocket and a smaller zip-fastening pocket with the whole thing being lined in cotton panama. The bag is not only designed in England but also made here, in one of the best accessories factories in the world. None of this comes cheaply and as such the bag is very expensive. But as the old adage goes – you get what you pay for.
