The last time I purchased a backpack, I was in college, it was from The North Face and I
was the coolest kid looked like every other kid on campus. That charcoal & pink backpack traveled throughout Europe and all over the USA with me; I do still love and wear it — but I needed to bring my backpack game to a more chic place.
Enter my BFF, @Kaitmills who sent me a photo of her new Herschel backpack asking if it was “chic enough” to wear to a fashion/hospitality interview in NYC? Le DUH! How fab does she look? After I realized how undeniably cool backpacks are again (from her chic fashion girl selfies below), I decided to go after these new Everlane packs I had been lusting after!
Everlane has evolved into one of my favorite new brands. I read a tag line on The Fader recently about how “Everlane turned hipsters basic,” and I kinda love that because I <3 hipsters and I <3 basics (the clothes, not the persona). As seen in my previous post about their “Everyday Anorak”, Everlane manufactures high quality clothing & accessories at affordable prices. They cut out the middle man and consumers reap the benefits. After weeks of awesome social media hype & presence, Everlane launched these great backpacks. I watched their Snapchat story everyday (blushing) – but you all know I’m obsessed with social media anyway.
Very versatile! I purchased in the larger size, obv because I carry FAR too much (but the mini is awesome too!) in the “Reverse Denim & Black Leather” color.
Love the black leather detailing! This pack has pockets for all things; fits a MacBook, iPhone, side pockets for a water bottle/whatever else you want easy access to, inside pockets, front zipper pocket for small items, etc. Highly recommend this item for back to school or around the city or anywhere your travels take you. Gets endless compliments and “where’d you get that bag?” comments galore!
