Innovations and trends in Bags and Accessories

Sophisticated carrying systems literally take the load off. This was evident from the variety of bags and accessories at Insights-X from 4–6 October 2018. And their lovingly imaginative layouts and designs also boost your mood. A colourful selection of innovations is included in the sixth instalment of our six-part innovation report.

Rucksacks and bags that win over your heart

Santoro London presents a roomy rucksack and a heart-shaped shoulder bag as part of its Gorjuss series. The practical shoulder bag is decorated with the lovely Gorjuss girl and a zebra, offering plenty of space for everyday belongings. The front flap of the rucksack is interpreted in ruby red satin with a Little Red Riding Hood motif. The shoulder straps in brown leatherette can be adjusted for comfort. The company is showcasing another functional rucksack from its “Poppi loves Animal” series. The highlight here is the front flap, detailing Poppi’s lovable friend Bear.

LYC SAC is launching the classic CiTY rucksack as a limited edition in metallic colours. The rucksack is designed with a large main compartment allowing quick and easy access to the items stored inside. The front pocket is perfect for smaller belongings. Thanks to the padded back and the soft straps, the rucksack can be worn comfortably for long periods. 

Ergonomic school bags grow with your child

The new Campus Fit school backpack that Undercover is showing in its Scooli collection, is lightweight, ergonomic and has a narrow fit. Designed with a slender body and adjustable shoulder straps, it can be perfectly positioned on children with small frames, ensuring maximum comfort. The new school backpack is scheduled to appear in twelve designs from January. It comes as a set with a neck pouch, a shoe bag and a filled pencil case set. Undercover is just as proud of its modern FlexMax. The school backpack can be adjusted to the growing child thanks to the Velcro loop and height guides. The FlexMax is now available in new, neutral designs, including a blue wave look and a pink-and-white polka dot pattern. 

Accessories keep school life organised

The pencil cases appearing under the BRUNNEN brand are well-known for their high quality. Excellent workmanship, bold colours and motifs are just some of their attributes. Baier & Schneider has added to its already extensive and structured product spectrum a pencil case and pen holder rolled into one with a wipe-clean inner lining.

Practical stainless-steel thermos containers for on the go are part of the Majoris series from Esbit Compagnie. They keep hot meals warm for long periods and high-vitamin snacks, such as sliced fruit and vegetables, crisp and fresh. Thanks to the large opening, they are easy to fill and clean. Another new addition is a robust stainless-steel drinking bottle with a sports cap. Its slender dimensions ensure that it fits in many bike drink holders and in the side pockets of rucksacks. Both innovations will appear on the market in spring 2019. Like all products in the Majoris series, they are free from plasticisers.
