The young company—founded in 2017 by two friends who were struggling to find a lightweight bag that was stylish yet functional—seeks to bridge the gap in the market that leave many of us with the same dilemma. Through the use of interesting shapes and colour combinations, Apede Mod are disrupting the fashion scene with each and every creation, their bags a re-imagination of what a convenient yet fashionable bag can look like.

The capsule ’17 and S/S ’18 collection is made up of five styles: the K1 Backpack, Kangaroo Tote, Circle 3-Way Backpack, Dino Carryall, and Everywhere Duffle. Each available in a variety of colours—primarily navy, maroon, or grey—with the fabric, zipper, and stitching hand-picked and put together by true artisans. Exuding a casual and free aesthetic without losing the all-important notion of luxury, these Instagrammable pieces fit your fast-paced, urban lifestyle to perfection.

Designed for everyday use, the K1 is versatile with individual compartments designed for going to work, traveling, and hitting the gym, whilst the half circle design on the lower pocket is an iconic motif for the brand.

We Heart got its hands on a K1 and Circle 3-Way backpack recently, the former in maroon with pops of white, grey, and red, and the latter in navy with white trim. Both genderless bags feature a water-repellent shell, 13-inch computer protective shell, nylon body with leather detail, and a familiar, unfussy but refined look.
