backpacks rucksacks
When Alexander McQueen jumps on the backpack bandwagon, you are safe to call it a trend.

As much as it pains me to feel so late to the game, I don’t actually believe I have worn a backpack since my sophomore year of high school. Even then, it was the one-shoulder hang-over (as if to say, “I do not take studies seriously enough to carry enough books to make this uncomfortable.” Which I did.) Yet here we are – in 2012 – with yet another 90s style staple creeping past the creepers on the trendometer.

I have plucked a few of my favourite “fashion backpacks” for your viewing/buying pleasure, above. The Jansport days are long gone, my bubs.
