Little America x My Ideal Heart’s Day Date

Grab every opportunity to enjoy nature, rain or shine. Savor the coolness that a damp early afternoon drizzle would bring. Throw away inhibitions and just be. Time spent immersed in literature and long walks. Writings of love read or written, basking in the love that a single day magnifies. A day of hearts with that one man who has the ability to show you that everything which makes life wonderfully amazing is all around you — is in you.

Herschel Philippines just concluded their Valentine promo wherein they were giving away a cool Settlement backpack in Red (20 Liter) to the best photo that somehow captures the essence of the brand and, of course, best illustrates a creative outdoor Valentine’s date. I can’t wait to see who got lucky enough to own that cool bag.

Wishing I could join the contest, I had immediately toyed with a photo concept soon after friends from Herschel mentioned their plans last month. I knew it’d be a fun little photo/blog project that will inspire me to write and share. One, I wanted to try and capture my ideal outdoorsy Valentine date. Two, it’d be fun to explore the elements that will play an important part in my visual story telling. And, three, I’d get to do all of it with friends.

Fell in love with one of the Herschel bag designs, Little America. The brand draws inspiration from vintage mountaineering, American heritage, world travel and fashion. The brand (their bags and accessories) does offer a good option that caters to individuals who go for the vintage-inspired casual fashion. I have to admit, my style preference of late leans toward this concept (huge on leather, et.al.). Herschel states that their bags and accessories grasp the idea of the unconventional taste that goes along with the unique personality. Classic and charming, the details suit those who prefer that the items they own, wear, or use will still give them enough room to express themselves, hence, injecting a Herschel piece into one’s personal style will never limit nor direct the individual into a particular style that’s not their own.

Little America retails roughly around Php 4,000.00 (will update when the SRP has been verified) UPDATE: “SRP of Little America is P5,490 for the 23 liter and P4,990 for the 13 liter.” The one I have in the photo is the Little America 13-liter canvas which is double the SRP of the standard 13-liter (so I’m told!). You can also check out other available styles on the Herschel Philippines Facebook Page.

Herschel is known best for backpacks but the brand also has messengers, totes, duffel bags, wallets, and gadget sleeves.

Herschel stockists: Bratpack stores in Greenbelt 5, Gateway, SM the Block, Robinsons Galleria, Robinsons Place Manila, Abreeza in Davao City.

Thanks, Penny for manning my camera, MrSixty, and working with my photo concept for this post. Cheers!
