For some, school has already begun, When In Manila and for most who has been stretching out their summer vacation due to calendar adjustment you’re good and ready to buy school supplies to last all year long. Like notebooks and pens, art supply and materials. You would also need a bag to gather all of your stuff to school.
Have you been using your worn out bag your titos and titas sent you from the states since you were god-knows-how-old? Well I did for the longest time since I’m the kind of girl that uses things until they are worn out or else there was no need to replace them. But I found 3 functional bags that will not only hold your stuff but also leave you looking the chicest most fashionable person on campus.
3. Flying Dutchman
2 CSB blockmates brainstormed the idea of a clothing brand, selling at bazaars and launching one product at a time. Flying Dutchman is a Menswear brand that caters to college students and young professionals. They started this brand when they were 23 years old! They have boat shoes (which I adored as well), men’s button downs and Rucksacks such as this.
Being an art student requires me to constantly bring a big bulk of things to school: Art supplies, digital paraphernalia, my bulky laptop, planner, notebooks, sketchbooks, fabric and so. It all conveniently fits in this rucksack and didn’t feel uncomfortable when worn.
It’s a mix of denim, and leather and I loved the colors! They have different ones for you to choose from as well. Very Modern laidback as how they described their brand. Their stocks are also limited so you should check them out soon at their online store and physical stores.

2. The Ilustrados
The Ilustrados is a Filipino brand created to promote and rediscover the existed manner of wearing classic and timeless pieces that are designed and produced with the same dedication as the primitive Ilustrados exerted to liberate the excellency of Filipino craft.
1. Nobles and Commoners
I fully recommend for every college student or young professional. They will last a long time and are the most fashionable ones out there.
