These Backpacks Are For Grownups

Carry your life with you in style


Designers weren’t just reminiscing the ’90s this Spring/Summer season, they were doing a #throwback to youth in general, if the number of backpacks sent down the runway were any indication.

Instead of the thin fabric versions we carried around in secondary school, chic, modern and definitely more grown up iterations of backpacks were spotted at numerous fashion shows, from Burberry Prorsum to Louis Vuitton.

The key to not looking like an adolescent in a backpack is in picking the right design and material. Instead of rucksacks in nylon and canvas, opt for something in luxe leather and a sleeker design.
