For some, this might seem preposterous, but backpacks are a legitimate handbag choice this season. And I’m not talking about those nylon things that we used to carry (a long time ago) to school, these are as sophisticated as a backpack could get. Made of beautiful materials, and exquisite details, this trend is becoming harder to resist (It won me over).

Chanel, The Row, Moschino are among those who brought back this once “geeky” accessory, and not only modernized its design but also the way it is carried. In addition to the traditional back strapping technique, and carrying it with one shoulder, the backpack 2.0 has on a sophisticated handle that allows the ladies to carry it as they would do any other handbag.

If you are not yet convinced, check out the gallery below, and the backpack won’t seem so different from any other purse.
