The backpack is back with force and there’s a lot to love about the reincarnation of this classic style. Once only associated with hiking, sightseeing, tourists and school the backpack is now available in endless iterations -- slouchy, structured, colourful, embellished, nylon, sporty, mini, velvet and more…
Not only can you choose the style to match your moment the backpack has that added value of allowing you to run around town with ease with your baggage behind you. Yes, were having fun because the backpack is fun. Originally designed back in the 1930s for mountain hikers, backpacks soon became the schoolbag for kids of the 1970s. Now it is just as much a fashion item as the designer sneaker.
As The Way’s creative director, Kellie Hush says “A backpack is just as practical as it is fun. It continues to borrow from its sporting heritage, so you can’t help but feel sporty and youthful when you have one on your back.”
