Me & my backpack

Backpacker is a person that is usually adventurous, spontaneous, brave and with the free spirit. Can it be that in every one of us lies a petite backpacker? Possibly the young Muccia Prada had a vagabond spirit back in the early 80s when she came to idea to create a backpack from a nylon fabric that her grandfather’s company was using to cover large suitcases for overseas traveling. By the mid 90s everyone was wearing backpack, and those with few hundred spare dollars in their pocket had a triangle Prada sign on it. Not only the Prada girls were popular, but also the voyagers with Chanel backpacks. Chanel heroines were not just on the streets or in offices but also in the books.
These days, backpacks are becoming popular again. Finally, different kinds of stores are offering rucksacks that don’t look any more like hitchhiking equipment. Military style is moral just when it comes to fashion so I find those influenced with it very delightful. Same feelings I have towards tapestry or ethnic backpacks. But my heart beats faster for vintage iconic backpacks. So Chanel Suede backpack in brown would immediately make a bohemian princess out of me, and one in black suede a ballet dancer, even if I am not on personal with jeté.

Surely it's silly to think that with one of these vintage backpacks you would be able to travel the world in 80’s days but they give this idea of adventurous nature.Me & my backpack means me more spontaneous and nonchalant. Also means more often excursions to library because it’s very practical and can hold more books than regular purse. It also doubles the chances that I won’t skip my yoga classes, or I’ll take a walk around the pretty lake that is just 5 minutes from my house. If nothing, doubles my chances for more often casual but chic weekends.

hmm, I don't think I'll get one. I was too happy when my mum finally let me say goodbye to my backpack when I left elementary school :) Now it's all about bags for me, although I like backpacks on other people!

Oh, the Chanel ones are so adorable! I remember when the Prada ones were a huge trend in the early 90s when I was still in school. Obviously I just had a normal one. These days I sometimes use one for traveling, but generally I get paranoid I'll get pickpocketed, since I can't see the back.

I do love the chanel ones, although it's funny, backpacks remind me of being in school and rebelling and using tote bags instead! haha.
