Shop the Trend: Backpacks

I may stand firmly behind the fanny pack — and per the Spring 2012 runways so do Michael Kors and Jean Paul Gaultier — but there's no denying that the backpack has been quicker to catch on. Not only has The Row's $39,000 crocodile backpack already sold-out (much to Anderson Cooper's outrage), but designers' affinity for the acupuncturist-approved bag style shows no signs of slowing down.

Seen on countless Spring 2012 runways including at Carven, DW by Kanye West, and Alexander Wang, the backpack has moved beyond the basic nylon Prada-type styles (wildly popular back in the 90s), and are now fashioned in colorful hues, exotic skins, fur, and out-of-the-box shapes.
