On Our Radar: Raoul Rucksack


Forget the eagle—the camel has landed. The neutral so took over the runways for Spring 2010 that it feels omnipresent, and the season’s barely begun. There’s not a girl I know who isn’t planning some dromedary debut, whether it’s a Celine coat or a pair of Chloé trousers. Hey, no objections here. But what about us guys? To me at least, a camel coat just doesn’t feel as fresh for men. That’s why I’m planning to leave the toppers to the ladies and invest in accessories. I love this sandy ruck sack from the Singaporean brand Raoul. The shape’s a bit more mature than some of the more schoolboyish options, though the collegiate spirit is intact—fit for an upperclassman, say. With its classic shape, I could see even a tomboy tossing it on over her slouchy blazer. But c’mon, girls—don’t you have options enough of your own?

    Thought I gave up backpacks with Jansport in junior high, but I would definitely wear this (and maybe let my boyfriend borrow it…)
