I am not a backpack person. I never really was. When it came to school, I was a messenger bag kind of girl. But right now I am all about the backpack and of course that is because of designer extraordinaire Alexander Wang. Alexander Wang is the designer for me, so much so that if I was told I could only buy from one designer right now I would live very happily with my choice.
The typical schoolbag has been made super cool in the Alexander Wang Sydney Backpack. In fact, it has been made so cool that I feel like enrolling in a class just to buy this bag. Of course you don’t need to be in school to carry a backpack, but I just about love this bag so much that I would consider going back to school for a new backpack. See, I find ways to get around my bag ban right now!
Goodbye boring and typical, hello downtown cool. The Sydney Backpack comes in two versions, black velvet and pinstriped. I am all about the pinstriped fabric. I want to put this bag on and walk around like I have somewhere to go with it. Hello back-to-school cool. The buttoned strap closures at the front flap are very Alexander Wang. Then there is an extra-long drawstring at the top (it’s the part of the bag that looks kind of like a scarf hanging from the bag). I know this bag is not for everyone, and typically it is not for me, but every part of my body wants this bag. Dimensions are 20″H x 12″L x 9″D. Buy via ShopBop for $775.
