What I’m Wearing: Birksun London Bag (currently out of stock, similar here)


Recently, I got the chance to collaborate with L.A. based backpack company Birksun, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I’m generally a pretty outdoorsy person and also generally forget to charge my phone , so I felt like the combination of their aesthetic and design really applied to me personally. The backpacks are unique because of the solar panels lining the front, which allow the battery inside the bag’s front pocket to store a full phone charge (or charge your phone indefinitely if your bag is in the sun). While Birksun is known for their bright, color-block bags, I went for their more subdued London Collection backpack. It felt a little more day-to-day in an urban setting, which, I later found out, was exactly why they designed it. Originally, I wanted to shoot the backpack filled with peonies, but, as luck would have it, the flower shop was out of everything but sunflowers that day. I think they made the shoot.
