Backpacks That Are Too Cool For School 

A testament to effort. 

Ah yes it’s that time of year. With the arrival of fall comes the beckoning of the backpack. Though it doesn’t have to be all sad faces and bittersweet resentments. From famed design houses like Prada, Chanel and Rick Owens, reinterpreting, refining, and imbuing them with possibility, backpacks have come face to face with the energy of revival. In the new wave fashion world, it’s a trivial fact that almost nothing holds the equivalent significance of a riveting, bold bag. Though what happens when that bag succumbs to the reality of the busy person? Tossed, flung, and weighed down – that can’t be good. 

Income from the backpack! And not the type to be caught in the same breath as a Jansport. We are talking designer! Durable! Bold! And Sleek! The type that gets you excited to walk to work (or school). A visual hallmark symbolizing just how far you’ve come. Therefore, we’ve compiled our favorites to help ease your transition into the hustle and bustle of the upcoming season.
