Rugged luxury with the Burberry Rucksack

You can never really have enough bags, although we feel that this statement rings true when it comes to accessories in general. Enter Burberry’s latest accessory for both men and women: The Rucksack. First unveiled during the house’s Spring/Summer 2016 “Functionregalia” collection in September 2015, the bag flew off the digital shelves on its Runway Made To Order allocation shortly after. 

And for good reason: The Rucksack is inspired by designs from Burberry’s military archives circa the early 20th century and reinvented as a functional carryall that is both lightweight and soft in structure. Made from nylon woven in a compact garbadine construction, the Rucksack was made for added functionality (multi-zip pockets!) no matter the season (water-repellent finish!) Add a personalised touch with monogrammable embroidered gold metal letters on the external front pocket if you like. New colourways including canvas green, navy, and burgundy red will be available in the collection throughout the season.

The Burberry Rucksack is now available in all Burberry stores nationwide and on
