The last time I wrote about a Marc by Marc Jacobs backpack, the response was, well…tepid. In fact, exactly zero of you chose to even share your thoughts on the back, which is somewhat rare in these parts – we have vocal commenters and we love you for it!

So Marc by Marc Jacobs and I are going to try again to start this conversation – what do you guys think of designer backpacks? To me, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Backpack seems particularly functional for female high school and college students that have a slightly higher-than-average budget for their school wardrobes.

I went to a college where it was extremely normal to see girls carrying Longchamp and Herve Chapelier totes around campus in the place of more traditional backpacks, and I’m better that most campuses are similar – of course we want our school bags to be fashionable! This particular one is a tad boring (if a utilitarian success), but I’m hoping that it will sell well so that MbMJ makes it in some of the brand’s more interesting nylon patterns. Buy through ShopBop for $198.
