Sac du jour

Hand-reconstructed vintage denim backpack, $59 at Urban Outfitters

We’ve been seeing more than our fair share of backpacks kicking around the cooler side of town. And we don’t mean that we’ve been hanging around the school yard.

As this season breezes in ’70s trends we’re also spotting a few choice relics from the ’80s. The backpack is one of them and today’s convertible denim sac is a nice way to carry off the look.

Urban Outfitters' Urban Renewal convertible denim backpack, $59

We love that the custom-nature of this bag means that no two are alike. The Urban Renewal backpack at Urban Outfittersade is made of re-purposed vintage fabric sourced from all over the world and hand-sewn by skilled peeps in Philadelphia. Wear it as a one-shouldered satchel or zip down the centre strap to create two for the road.

Priced $59, it’s totally within reach, even if you’re on a weekly allowance.

    p.s. I also think I had something similar when I was 8.

      Yeah it’s not for me either but I think it’s a good option for the gals out there who were in diapers when we were wearing these in grade 5.
