Backpacks are usually given a bad rap on the schoolyard for their un-cool nerdy vibe. Lately this junior accessory has been given a chic upgrade and has been spotted on a number of high-end runways. A slew of designers have traded in structured totes for carefree backpacks because they are perfect for an on-the-go carefree lifestyle. Don’t be fooled though, the designer version of the childish accessory still comes with a hefty price tag. While they may not be suitable for the average student, they certainly make a fashionable statement for a functional accessory.

This multi-functional bag doubles as a backpack and shoulder bag and provides ample room for all school essentials. We love the laidback slouchy look of it and it comes in a deep raisin colour that is perfect for the fall!
