Attention Kaptens! Here at Kapten & Son, one launch follows another, and we have a big announcement to make:
After having a successful winter collection, we are very happy to announce that the Alesund Backpack by Ana Johnson is going into its second round! This year's Summer Edition is the highlight of our long-lasting cooperation with the lovely blogger. We are finally able to show you the results of Ana's self-designed collection, which you can find in our online-shop as well as our Kapten-Stores, starting June 13th!
We have already created two successful design collections with Ana. Now the Alesund by Ana Johnson gets a summery update: With her sense for stylish trends, Ana designed her backpacks in a warm peach color and rounded it off with some playful accessories - inspired by the ease of the summer season. Sweet tassels and subtle golden details give the Alesund an unique boho charm.
Like last time, the backpack is available in two sizes - so it's up to you to decide which one best suits you and your style. The backpacks design makes them the perfect companion for every occasion - whether it’s a city trip, a picnic in the park, or a short trip visiting the countryside. We have put together a little guide for you with the theme: "What's in my Bag?”. That way you are perfectly prepared for any situation and ready for the next adventure!
1. Stay hydrated!
At the top of our list is: Water! Whether it’s sparkling water or not; having something to drink for the day is a must. It is up to you whether you want to stick with water or not. If you want to drink something with a little more taste, you can also pack tea, juices or spritzers.
2. It's snack time
Besides packing drinks, a few snacks should not be missing. Our favorites include granola or fruit bars, but also nuts and fresh fruit fit perfectly into the new Alesund.
3. Size it down - the mini beauty case
An absolute must-have for your city trip is a mini beauty case - the front pocket of the Alesund is the ideal size for such. All your everyday beauty products will find their place here, the mini beauty products from the drugstore are the perfect size. Here are a few little things we can recommend: Perfume samples, blotting papers, a pocket mirror, bobby pins and hair ties, lip balm, a hand cream and hand sanitizer. Also chewing gum, handkerchiefs and deodorant are great to have with you.
4. Keep your phone battery alive
Who hasn’t been in this situation? You spontaneously head out and are gone all day - of course you cannot allow your phone battery to run out. A power bank is a great solution for that, which you can easily store in the inner pocket of the backpack. And of course, you shouldn't forget its charging cable!
5. All things are possible with the right shades
What you should not forget for your next trip is a pair of sunglasses! These not only complete your outfit as a perfect accessory but are also essential during the warm and bright summer days.
Ana completes her summer look with our sunglasses, Rome Gold Green. So, what are you waiting for, Kaptens: pack your backpacks from Ana’s summer collection and start your next adventure.
