FashionBackpacks Backpacks Are Back

Used to be back in the ’90s backpacks were the hot item in New York City. You’d go to a coat check at a party (Giant Step, anyone?) and it’d be filled with (mostly) guys’ Northface backpacks. And then those Prada nylon mini-ones became huge and at at that time the counterfeiters were at the height of their powers and you could buy a very good copy all over New York City. In terms of popularity that Prada bag was akin to the LV Speedy today–so everywhere you couldn’t help but think, “Real or fake?” everytime you laid eyes on it.  

So anyway, now Shopbop is saying they’re back in style again. Fashion repeats itself, yes, but always with a twist so it’ll be interesting to see how this trend works itself out this time around…if it does at all.
