The Backpack Grows Up

Back-to-school shopping isn’t just for kids — adults can treat themselves to a backpack this year, too. We’re not talking your average JanSport. Top luxury designers are offering minimalistic and classic variations of (often miniature) knapsacks in leather, suede, and more vibrant styles featuring bold patterns, studs, and tassels. Sure, you (probably) won’t be putting a pencil case and lunchbox in this rucksack from Burberry, but you’ll definitely feel like the cool kid at school.
