Spring 2014 Backpack Trend - stylish & casual

  • Category: 2014
Alexander Wang Prisma Leather Backpack Intl ShippingMore 2014 trends to cover, and it's fun to see a new handbag shape emerge for the new season - say hello to the designer backpack, a fresh new style that is both practical and stylish!

It's easy to (accidentally) leave your handbag behind when planning a new season wardrobe, hopefully this new trend will remind you just how key it is to your look. A new colour or shape can breathe new life into even the most basic pieces - a stylish mini backpack, like this Alexander Wang Prisma, paired with a simple tee and jeans brings you into 2014 with style!

It's interesting to see just how many luxury designer brands have embraced this trend - Alexander McQueen, The Row, Givenchy and my personal favorite 3.1 Phillip Lim, who has converted the classic Pashli into a backpack, available in black and this gorgeous shade of orange. Check out the assortment below - if you work in an office, black is always safe, but I highly recommend camel and tan this season.. and can personally vouch for MARC by Marc Jacobs Q in taupe (I have the Petal to the Metal in the same color!).
