My love for backpacks go back to my childhood days, 6 years old to be more accurate; when my uncle went to USA and brought me a mini denim backpack with three applique pink flowers. Then I remember in middle school begging my parents to buy me a Nike backpack for school. Again in high school opting for a Lacoste backpack whereas all the other girls were carrying shoulder bags. Then I cheated on them with crossbody bags, totes and satchels – living in a country famous for pickpockets you can’t leave anything to chance. Now, almost 10 years and two continents later, my dear old friend has turned back into my life. I started with borrowing my husband’s Urban Outfitters leather look backpack but now I think I have to own one myself. Maybe even two?
I think my favourites are floral mini backpack from Bank (hello childhood subconscious), A.Wang leopard, minimal leather Zara and yes, of course, the vintage Chanel.
