We used to think of backpacks as the typical JanSport most of us wore in grade school, but in more recent years, designers have been churning out some seriously amazing backpacks. These past few years, we’ve seen numerous designer backpacks on the runway, celebrities and supermodels rocking them, and in tons of street style pictures from photographers and style bloggers alike. They say 2013 was the year of the snake, but we’re saying it was the year of the backpack.
