The backpack trend

The backpack is back for Autumn/Winter 2014, but not quite as you know it. While designers like Henry Holland have kept to traditional rucksack shapes, lots of brands including Mulberry, Stella McCartney, Zac Posen and Ralph Lauren have created sleek and chic backpacks that you can sling over your shoulder, or casually carry by hand.
