As the close of summer draws nearer, the annual search for the ultimate do-it-all bag commences. Carrying those all-important books, stationery and other necessities, a carefully considered backpack needs capacity, compartments and the right dimensions to ensure there’s enough space to carry all of those (often bulky) school essentials.
Beyond space, there’s also those helpful extras; padded sleeves for electronics, adjustable straps and foamy back panels for comfort and external pockets to carry water bottles, umbrellas and other quick-access necessities. And that’s before finding something which complements the uniform and your little one’s personality.
Combining ergonomic design with an enduring ‘Off The Wall’ style, see them through the start of the new term with a selection of functional, versatile and yet effortlessly cool bags from Vans®. Whether they’re after something sleek and minimalistic or bold and expressive, there’s plenty of styles and sizes to see them through.
Prints with personality
With uniforms often dictating their day-to-day look, impactful, printed bags are a playful way to inject a unique sense of style into their back-to-school fashion. Add a touch of modernity with updated prints, with plenty of in-between styles to find their perfect look. There’s also throwback prints for those seeking a touch of nostalgia, including the iconic Vans® checkerboard.
Contemporary and easy to wear, choosing a colourblock style is another way to put their spin on back-to-school dressing, while being versatile enough to transcend to weekend outings. From cool khakis and berries to this year’s majorly pink moment, there’s a whole spectrum of washes, colours and hues to match their energy. On trend for this season? A tonal tricolour design that’ll work with endless outfit combinations.
A nod to the heritage Vans® style, classic monochrome is effortlessly wearable and will carry well beyond their first term. Those looking for something playful can lean into a retro checkerboard or statement logo style, while a full noir bag carries sophistication for those looking for something sleeker. If they feel like they need a little extra, there’s plenty of variations with external pockets and buckles to add an edge to their look.
