Few bags cause as much controversy as a backpack. Some’ll say they should only be worn en route to school, as a carry case for books, or when you’re out hiking up some mountain (in which case you’d want something heavy duty) but others like them for their ease in running around town. We say, as long as the back pack adds to your style statement, then go for it. So check out the Fall 2012 backpacks by Brooklyn based accessories and furniture makers (interesting mix) Layer X Layer. They’re smart, sophisticated and made to last.
