Head Back to School with Animal

As summer nears the end of the road, school is on the horizon once again and it’s time to get fixed for the new term.

Heading back to school doesn’t have to mean an end to all the fun. With Animal’s back to school collection, you’re certain to beat even the worst case of the September blues.

Pick your pack


School uniform might not give much chance for being individual but don’t worry, Animal’s line-up of backpacks for autumn provides plenty of scope to show some personality. Styled for adventure, but with spot-on functionality to meet classroom requirements, including padded laptop sleeves, A4 capacity and stowage space to spare.

Discover Backpack




The new school term is the perfect excuse to update your kit. Featuring three different colourways, the Discover backpack has a style to suit all comers. Edge the darker side of cool with a moody white-on-black print and chalk blue trim, or go urban with a textured grey design. For bright sparks, a blanket stripe pattern brings a little vintage vibe. The side-loading rear laptop sleeve gives easy access and protection for your tech and maintains the slim-line silhouette.

Storyteller backpack



Warming autumn colours in a geometric print are set against deep navy for the Storyteller backpack. Cut in a classic rucksack shape, but from a softer canvas fabric, to give that lived-in feel. There’s a roomy single compartment, allowing you to fit A4 files with ease, whilst the mesh organiser and large front zip pocket help keep things neat. Why not pair it up with the Briana wallet in the same captivating print?

Bright backpack


This is a super tidy backpack for heading back to school; packing 20 litres of carry space into a large internal compartment. A handy tricot lined divider, ID card holder and secure zip pocket, provides safekeeping for those important bits and bobs. Yoke style straps keep carrying comfy, even when the books are piling up! Go bold-as with a geo print in teal and dusky aqua green.

Pump backpack


This is a signature style pack from Animal with bold branding to give an old skool feel. The 20 litres of stowage space is plenty for those everyday essentials, including the all-important A4 file capacity. Solid construction is matched by strong colours and flashes of neon.

Alternatively, choose the black, white and maroon colourway with its quilted front pocket—a nod to the latest trend.

Spray backpack


The Spray Backpack is a versatile workhorse of a pack, stacking 25.5 litres capacity into a double compartment formation. Precious tech is taken care of with the padded internal laptop sleeve, whilst multiple pockets to the front and sides give plenty of stash space. A textured polyester, in urban grey with neon pops, creates a tough finish—ready to do battle with the elements, or the playground.

Also available in a white-on-black print with contrasting blue to zips and logo.

Throwback backpack


If you like to keep your look understated then the stealthy, low profile Throwback rucksack is the one to choose. Featuring Animal’s original British camo print, with a nice little update for the new season, this is a neat pack sized at 21 litres. The large internal compartment features a padded laptop sleeve, whilst the outer comes in durable polyester. Traditional backpack carry with an added side grab handle for crowded spaces.
