Serious cojones were needed in order to rock a fresh JanSport bookbag back in my middle school days. Yes, owning one of the iconic American apparel company’s bags automatically made you “the man”, but it also came with a hefty price of having to always be on guard against menacing classmates who were ready pounce on your unattended prized possession. (especially if the bag was decorated with multi-colored strings on its zipper.) Well, Jansport has returned with a new capsule in hopes of reigniting the grandeur it once possessed.
Inspired by the sandy desert mountains, their Fall 2018 Desert Collection consists of the SuperBreak backpack, the Fifth Avenue waist bag and the Half Pipe FX mini. Constructed with soft leather and suede, the bags are available in “mistral grey”, “vintage brown” and good ol’ black.
The Desert Collection is now stocked at NYC’s Extra Butter and will be sold at Jansport’s official website on October 28th. Check out its lookbook below:
