The Koala and I share a backpack. The Kathmandu backpack came free with my first student bank account, which means it has given a good 12 years of service. It has travelled with me to Hong Kong, Malaysia, Borneo, Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. Probably due to the countless beach missions, one zipper is calcified.

J.Crew’s Goodwinn Collection has a smart bunnylicious advertising campaign. Each bag in this range has a different capacity which is measured by bunnies.

The the that makes the brand interesting are it’s quirky phrases. Not what you would expect from high end luxury items. More reminiscent of bathroom graffiti. Sharon was once heard saying, “Whenever they say it can’t be done, remind them they can make a jellybean that tastes exactly like popcorn.” I think it’s a nice insight to her determination and slightly random, surplus-to-needs brand. No one needs popcorn flavoured jellybeans. …
