1. Visvim – Lamina Picaro 22L Backpack
Tracy’s Take: With out fail, Visvim serves up another sensational update on their iconic Backpack. The color pallet speaks volumes with rich hues of tan, complimented by sky blue washed denim patchwork along the front part of the gusset.
Spec: This season, the bags are made from Konbu, which is Japanese baked nylon, also called Lamina. This process of baking the nylon gives it a more organic, canvas-like texture and look. The padded straps, back, and waistband are covered in Italian corduroy. All Visvim bags use Riri zippers and also have a laptop compartment that fits a 15″ real snug.
