Hey Kapten! The time has finally come: we are starting the upcoming season with the launch of a new backpack collection. This time it is not only going to be one or two new models but in fact six new editions. Introducing our: Sundsvall, Tromso, Vallen, Harra, Habo and Vanso which are all waiting to become your everyday companion. And since our headquarter is located in Cologne, and therefore the representing city of our company, we quickly decided to have our backpack shoot take place in this beautiful city on the Rhine river this year. In celebration of our launch we wanted to share our knowledge of the most instagrable places in Cologne with you.
With the Sundsvall through the Belgian Quarter
Starting out in the Belgian Quarter - also known as one of the nicest areas in Cologne that has photo spots at (almost) every corner. In between the pretty, old buildings and green parks you can find awesome backgrounds for your Instagram photos. This quarter has the nicest facades and even if this might not be a secret anymore it should still be on top of your list. No matter if in “all black” or “sandstone” - the new Sundsvall backpack is definitely a great companion for your trip through the hippy neighborhood. Our new backpack is the perfect lifestyle, allrounder bag for your commute to the office, a weekend trip in the city or a shopping trip through the multi-faced hotspots.
High up with the Tromso
Let’s stay in the Belgian Quarter - here you can find not only beautiful facades but also the parking garage located on the Maastricht street. On top of that you get a stunning view of the city and it is the perfect location fitting to our Tromso bag. Like the Sundsvall - the Tromso has a stylish and minimalist design, making it the ideal companion for any situation. In addition, the Tromso comes in two different sizes so you can find the right fit for your needs.
Urban Street Style with the Vallen
Up next, the Rheinauhafen, where you can find a lot of modern buildings and the houses that look like cranes. With the Vallen you can find the urban look that big cities represent. The backpack comes in three different colors and is therefore the perfect addition to every look especially when wanting to travel in style. A similar cool location is the Mediapark. Same things here: high buildings and glassy looking architecture meeting the water view of the Rhine river and nice green areas - the perfect place for modern street photography.
On the go with Harra, Habo and Vanso
It is hard to imagine the metropolis streets without them: chest and hip bags. So we couldn’t resist and designed our own streetwear bags which are perfect for relaxing evenings in the park or long city nights. And we wouldn’t want to hide the perfect photo spots from you. Cologne has a lot of cool street locations you could for example check out Gereonshof or the Cologne underground where we would recommend stations like Rochusplatz and Serverinstraße that offer great backgrounds for your picture. And even streets like Lindenstraße or Lupusstraße are great for photos. Just make sure that you do not disturb the residents.
So grab your favorite backpack and camera Kaptens - we are excited to see how your pictures are going to turn out! Feel free to use our hashtags #bekapten, #kaptenandson or even tag us in your photos - maybe we will see you and our new collection soon on the streets of Cologne or anywhere else in the world.
