Trend Alert ~ The Backpack
Think backpacks and first visual to strike your mind is that of school, book and well in my case... way too much load. Not any more... as the fashion czars have put this back-to-school staple on the runways this Spring/Summer.
Spotted these backpacks displayed front and centre at Harrods and Selfridges in London. As you can see this humble bag has got a serious style upgrade. Made of finer materials such as treated canvas and leather; outfitted with the best hardware and complete with designer trimmings. There are no traces of childhood here.
Gotta get one of these for sure. Practical as we've always known, these backpacks need not be restricted to gym time and can be worn with any casual look.
Top of my wish list is this canvas graffiti backpack from Chanel. Other fashion labels where you can find the new "it" bag include, Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney and Proenza Schouler.
