From home goods (including jewelry boxes and even tampon cases!) to hardware-light bags, few can work an exotic skin like Elisabeth Weinstock. Since 2002, she’s cemented and maintained her unreal hand with decadent anaconda. Her latest – and greatest – is a backpack that’s polished and sophisticated.
In the past few years, the backpack has made the seamless switch from semi-novelty piece to undeniably practical item to often chic essential. Well, there’s nothing chicer than a perfectly simple yet supremely luxe drawstring rucksack tossed over your shoulder, and these fit the bill. In black-and-white Starburst Matte or pink Splattered Natural painted anaconda (big surprise: I’m partial to the pale pink!), the backpack has just received the makeover you’ve been waiting for. Or to take it down just a notch, opt for the slightly more rugged black whipsnake. Either way, your city wardrobe will thank you. Elisabeth Weinstock anaconda and whipsnake backpacks in starburst matte anaconda, $1,970; splattered natural anaconda, $2,070; and black whipsnake, $1,245, soon to be available at Elisabeth Weinstock.
