These are what all the coolest kids will be carrying their schoolbooks in when the new school year begins next month -- and they'd look just as good on you walking into the studio. Gola has updated its line of shoulder and messenger bags featuring the hip, cute characters of Sheffield-based design duo Tado -- aka Mike and Katie.

All six characters -- Berwyn. Botterill, Luxey, Martin, Pomme and Wellfed -- return in new forms with a cosmic, psychedelic edge. You can pick them up from the Gola Store at £20 for the messenger bag and £30 for the shoulder bag, and there's a huge number of options to choose from -- though if you've got children cycling to school like me, you may wish there was a rucksack version too.
