The Rucksack
We’ve never seen a backpack this simple, yet so haute. We are absolutely head over heels with The Burberry Rucksack, which made its debut in the Spring/Summer 2016 “Functionregalia” and has since then taken over Hollywood (and our hearts). It’s been obsessed over and carried by the likes of celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne. Lightweight, waterproof and cute, this nylon backpack with leather trims has just taken functionality (did we mention multi-zip pockets?!) onto a whole new other level. The Rucksack is a modern take on their classic 20th century military style and is available in 3 colours – Mauve Pink, Flax and Pine Green.


It doesn’t matter if you’re planning to dress up or dress down because the Rucksack comes in three functional sizes, so go ahead and wear this ultra haute bag with a gown if you want. You can also personalise the Medium and Large versions by monogramming beautiful embroidered gold letters on the external front pocket to make it even more special than it already is.


The Belt Bag


Yet another Burberry bag to add to our never-ending lust list – this Belt Bag features a regimental belt detail with a polished gold metal buckle. Crafted with quality calf leather trim, the Belt Bag is complete with magnetic fastening and a distinctive metal chain. This sophisticated, sleek and totally chic accessory comes in either Oblong or Square sizes, and features a range of quality textures for you to choose from. Think English suede, grainy leather alligator and more.


Influenced by military styles from the 1920s to 1950s, we just love how The Belt Bag in Square makes the perfect size for any event. We can’t help but zero in on the detailed textures of the bag and the array of rich and gorgeous colours it comes in. Definitely spoilt for choice.


The Belt Bag in Oblong is an adaptation of a small officer’s bag from the Burberry Heritage Archive and its unique shape makes it stand out even more. It also comes with accompanying calf leather straps, obviously making it even more irresistible.

We are officially sold.
