Kånkens. You either love them or hate them, there’s no in-between when it comes to these compact yet seemingly bottomless backpacks. Now, what if we were to tell you that they’ve decided to revamp the classic silhouette? Haters, we hear you, but maybe you’d like to consider these newer additions to the colourful family. Come Spring/Summer 2020, Fjällräven introduces two new members to the iconic line: the Kånken Totepack Mini and the Kånken Hip Pack.
Iconic Meets New
The Kånken Totepack – its name sounds both familiar yet foreign, doesn’t it? It’s Fjällräven’s new take on the classic tote bag, with a Kånken spin, of course. A spacious shoulder bag that can transform into something akin to the familiar backpack with its elongated straps, it can be carried over your shoulder on a casual stroll into town, or as a backpack when you need both your hands free. As the cousin to the beloved Kånken, it looks similar in design but boasts a sleek little sleeve for your laptop. This compact companion is the perfect travel partner, with a Mini version available as well. Available in eight stunning colours, this member of the extended family will prove that working on the go is no longer a problem.
For The Essentials
What if you only carry the necessities – your phone and wallet, maybe some lip balm or a small water bottle? Or maybe you’re tired of digging through your bag to find what you really need? The Kånken Hip Pack will be your new best friend with its easily accessible pockets. It offers you a compact way to carry your valuables out with you while not obstructing any movements. Available in Ochre, Navy, Pink, Fog, Black and Frost Green, it proves to be a fashionable accessory any time of the year. Don’t belittle the ability of this small guy, simply sling it across your body or around your hips and you’re good to go. It’s just that easy!
The new additions fit seamlessly into the ever-expanding family of bags with the same iconic logo being seamlessly included in their design. Despite their unique shapes, it will only take a split second to recognise them as part of the functional and minimalistic brand. It’s safe to say that we’re happy to welcome these new bright additions to the family!
