While walking across Place de la Concorde in Paris, I spotted this beautiful young lady combining the Western look, a la Ralph Lauren, so well with the classic French striped shirt. A minute or two later, this comfortable, yet stylish leather backpack caught my eye. In both looks there is something about rough leather that inspires adventure. Or as the makers of the MADLY backpack put it so well: “the MADLY is he who lives adventurously, challenging the limits of his control to explore the unconventional. He is a man whose personal expression is sincere. He appreciates the crudity of life, on a journey that inspires him to live life madly.” I couldn’t have said it better.
