The good news is that the backpack is no longer relegated to the post-work gym-goer or model-in-transit. The backpack has made a comeback (your chiro will probably tell you they never went away). Truthfully, we weren’t entirely on board until we saw Burberry’s nylon and leather versions saunter down the Spring/Summer 2016 runway (you can add your monogrammed initials for a personalised touch).

The beauty of the updated backpack is in the lush details – whether its in the simplistic black and gold of YSL’s velour version, the buttery leather of Mansur Gavriel’s pink iteration or the signature Fendi Bag Bugs featuring fur, animal print and a whole lot of personality. It’s about finding the perfect manifestation that is sleek enough to see you through from work to evening and beyond.
