It's addictive scrolling through instagram, checking out fashion inspo and street style pics... And that's where I stumbled across Manchester, based brand, GRAFEA. I have been drooling over their leather backpacks for a while now so was thrilled to get the opportunity to do a photoshoot with them!! (Wooohoooo!!) Grafea have worked with some top bloggers such as Victoria from In The Frow, Sarah Ashcroft and now little old me :-D Now I am NO model at all, but I have seen enough America's Next Top Model to get by... ;-) Luckily, Amy from Grafea guided me through the shoot and here's the finished result!
OOTD: We wanted to let the main point of focus be the bag, so I kept the outfit simple.
Coat: Zara, Trilby: Topshop, Jeans: Primark, Gloves: ASOS Tshirt from Rock On Ruby!
We shot with the gorgeous Baby Grafea in Peach (coming online very soon...) and it was ridiculously gorgeous. The leather is lovely and thick and the colour is even more beautiful in real life. Even though this is the smaller size, this would have more than enough space for all your essentials, eg phone, keys, make up bag!
It was so interesting doing the shoot with Grafea - I didn't realise how tricky it might be to get a front facing outfit shot with a bag that's supposed to go on your back! I can see Grafea backpacks being huge this Summer for the festical season, so keep an eye out!
