Backpacks are so much more fun when there is no school element involved. Backpacks have also become a fashion trend game changer.
The Fashion Trend Report: Backpacks
I once had a blue nylon backpack through my secondary school years. It was a sartorial classic, I didn’t even cover it in band names. It was minimalistic and utilitarian. The backpack has come along way; it has flocked from the great outdoors onto the runway and onto the tube. Derived from the luxury sports wear trend, major fashion houses like; Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, and Chanel, have turned the backpack into a coveted accessory. The backpack has received its cultural convergence not only by hipsters, but by all of the stereotypes! A backpack can give you nostalgia and a sense of adventure.
When I see a man with a backpack I know it’s the 21st century expression of adventure. The man in the backpack is referencing outdoor masculinity; it’s a survivalist streak, except I doubt he has a headlamp in there. This man has never arrived, and at any moment he may decide to leave. Apparently this has something to do with why Katie Holmes started wearing backpacks after she left Tom Cruise? You can also fit a bottle of wine it. And what about those pictures of Rhianna with her oversized Adam Selman backpack prices at £425. Now you are hands-free with your backpack the possibilities are endless, you can do so many more activities. Backpacks now come in various styles; from a minimal leather number, kitsch bold prints, to the drawstring, there is something out there for everybody. Even Kanye West loves them, if that means something. If you are looking to buy backpacks online, have a look at the edit below for some style inspo.
