In order to survive among the forthcoming barrage of tourists an Ape must be prepared – the streets take no prisoners. In this concrete jungle adapting is key and thankfully with Selfridges Urban survival backpacks this task just got a lot easier.

In a series of limited edition backpacks, the London superstore has commissioned ten designers including the likes of Oliver Spencer, 3.1 Philip Lim and Paul Smith to lend their interpretation to this functional product.

Designed to interpret the brands take on surviving a day in London, the end products feature a combination of novelty and useful items. From Nike’s inclusion of headphones to Oliver Spencer’s addition of a London A to Z, capturing the modern interpretation of survival.
