Backpacks are For Grown-Ups, Too

What is the most popular trend in quality bags in recent years? You may have noticed that chic backpacks have been making frequent guest appearances in the fashion pages worldwide. As well as being advertised in magazines and on the catwalk, it is a trend that, due to practicality, has really caught on with ‘off-duty’ celebrities and models. Designer backpacks have graced the shoulders of such elegant women as Cara Delevigne and Doutzen Kroes. Now, you too can master the cool, nonchalant look that these ladies pull off so effortlessly. No longer only useful in your formative years, the backpack has officially graduated high school. Check out our great selection of designer backpacks for women to find your perfect match.

Handpainted Leather Bag with Backpack

Get in touch with the little girl inside you and make her day; treat yourself to the colorful and crazy backpack your mom wouldn’t buy you for school all those years ago. The totally unique hand-painted leather is not for the stylishly faint of heart, but it will really make you stand out from the crowd, and brighten up even the plainest of outfits. Like many of our bags, this can be worn either as a backpack or a shoulder bag, with some easy rearrangement of the slim leather straps.

Fashion Multicompartment Zipped Backpack

If you are looking for something a little less frivolous, but still edgy and high-fashion, our multicompartment zipped number could be your ideal companion. The quirky triangular shape is both practical and eye-catching, especially when you carry it as a handbag by the handle at the top. The key feature of this bag is the contrast in the zips, fittings and leather trim. A large zip separates the thick central strap into two shoulder straps to enable the wearer to use the bag as a rucksack. Instead of trying to disguise or hide this zip, the designer has kept the look modern and up to date by giving it a Christopher Kane edge and making the contrasting zip a central hallmark of the piece. This is the kind of bag that has lots of cool little ‘extra’ touches, like the super-cute mini detachable purse.
