It's Time to Switch to a Backpack This Season
Let's take a little trip down memory lane to a time when your parents took you to a shopping centre on the weekend every year before semester started. Remember how you painstakingly selected your new school bag? Each year you would trawl through the rack of bags with scrawled surf brand logos or bright cartoon characters to find the backpack that would be all yours for the following semesters. Remember obsessing over what to pick? Well, you're going to get that same familiar feeling all over again, because the backpack is back, baby.
It's not the first time you've heard about the trend, you probably read about backpacks when new styles by Alexander Wang, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Madewell, Elizabeth and James, Rebecca Minkoff and 3.1 Phillip Lim were catching eyes earlier in the season. It's totally understandable that you may have been hesitant to revisit your primary school pick straight away. But now the backpack is basically mainstream, with fast-fashion favourites like Asos, Topshop and Zara all making the trend totally accessible to every budget.
