FASHION MEETS FUNCTIONALITY WITH CONTINUING BACKPACK TREND
After yesterday’s MLK holiday, kids went back to school today. As they headed out the door this morning with their mittens and their brightly colored backpacks, you may have asked yourself, “are we ever too old for backpacks?” Recent retail trends indicate no.
Whether for fashion or for function, the backpack trend of 2017 has continued its momentum into the New Year and continues to resonate with premium incentive audiences. From the daily commuter bag to the perfect hiking pack and from the gym bag to the perfect accessory, backpacks continue to be a must-have item for professionals, outdoorsmen and fashionistas alike. Toss your essentials in, close it up, put it on your back and move on with comfort, ease and a hands-free experience.
