This year’s festival fashion focus is less Bohemian, more Athleisure. Compliment your freshest kicks with a branded sports backpack like Converse Originals. A bold ‘My Van Is On Fire’ red promises to turn heads and ensures you’ll never get lost in the crowd.
Accessorise: more is more. Make a statement with oversized sunglasses in this year’s hottest trend; the cat-eye. Shop several styles from Le Specs.
Failure to prepare is to prepare to fail. Festivals in the British summertime always bring with them the chance of rain, so make sure you’re one step ahead with Porter-Yoshida & Co‘s water-resistant nylon-twill Tanker Boston Holdall. The Japanese cult brand offers premium designs with features including pop-on clear pouches for essential items, double top carry handles or an alternative detachable shoulder strap option.
Gone are the days of flat batteries and missed communication. Stay connected on the go with one of Knomo‘s cross-body bags or wristlet purses, built with integrated chargers. Juice up your phone and the bag-battery before you leave home and trust that they will see you through to the other side.
With the ever-improving food and drink markets on offer at festivals today, the majority of vendors now accept credit cards too. Protect your contactless cards against the crowd with Secrid‘s RFID blocking leather-bound mini-wallet, available in an array of colours, prints and effects.
Rock up with an iconic piece from the kings of casual-cool; Herschel Supply Co. Their world-famous Little America backpack offers huge packing space at an impressive 50cm/24 litres. Contoured shoulder straps and air mesh back padding offer grateful support when the journey from front door to field is that bit further than expected.
Flaunt your fanny pack this summer with Eastpak‘s offerings in sassy pinks, purples and reds. For a more serious option, why not consider a Container wheeled duffle bag. Smooth-rolling wheels will offer you sweet relief pon-pavement while sturdy shoulder straps are available to haul over your shoulder once the mud becomes too, well, muddy.
