The Pepe, our bestseller backpack, gets better: now in 4 different sizes!

Designed to be ultra-organized as you move through ever-changing days, enabling you to travel light but with everything you need, to take you from the school run to the boardroom in style,” Sarah Joan Ross, Editor, Stylist for ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar and In Style. 

Ideal for commuting, travelling, from day to evening, the Pepe has been my (second) best companion for the past 10 years. (When we didn’t have tablets or small laptops.)

These recent years Steven Harkin has received more and more requests for bespoke backpacks to fit a 12″ Macbook, an iPad Pro or a Lenovo.

We started to offer 3 different sizes: standard, medium and large (for 13” laptops). We have now added a Mini version, in orange on the photo below, next to the red Standard and the black Medium.


What to pack in the Pepe? 

I’ve put together a list of all the must-haves the Pepe can shelter. There’s a place for your laptop, pockets for sunglasses, earphones, make-up, and whatever else you consider your essentials whilst on the go. You can also watch the video we made with the old (smaller) version of our bestseller backpack.

There is still room for some snacks and even a bottle of wine, if necessary!

Of course, the Mini Pepe is not as ambitious, but you can still carry a book and essential purse, specs, phone and make up.
