While living in New York provides us with above-average shopping opportunities, there are those certain stores that only exist in Europe, leaving us longing for their wares. Whistles is one of those stores, and I instantly get London Fashion Week FOMO when editors come back to the States with bags full of the label's goods.
Luckily, Whistles came to us this week for its U.S. press days, and I finally got to check out the spring and fall collections IRL. Not shockingly, the pieces are just as lovely in person as they are online, and I left wanting one of everything.
My favorite accessory was this rucksack from the brand, which a Whistles rep assured me has been a huge hit. It's easy to see (and feel) why: The bag is quite substantial and roomy -- zipper pockets galore! -- and made from really soft leather that you can tell will get even better with age.
While we unfortunately can't walk into a Whistles store and shop our hearts out (yet, at least), the brand offers free shipping to the States, which is the next best thing, right? Send your bank account my apologies.
Verity large rucksack, $500, available at Whistles.
