Herschel Supply Co. Settlement Backpack


It’s been a while since my last post, but the new year brings fresh words to my fingertips and new ideas to share with you, my dear and loyal PA friends. There’s no excuse for such a long hiatus, but schoolwork did take a toll and all I had on my mind were Rousseau, medieval songs, and Beckett.

Since schoolwork is my lame excuse, I thought I’d start the new year with a post on school things, or the school item for anyone who wishes to save their shoulders unwanted stress: the backpack. I would make a case that the backpack is actually making a comeback in the fashion world, but this is not the place for such an argument. I’m here merely to show you the simple perfection of the Herschel Supply Co. Settlement Backpack. Colored canvas, thick golden zipper, and leather ties are all you need to make a knapsack into a classic. What’s great about these is their striped lining and their built-in laptop pockets. It brings a classic line into new age practicality, and that’s no small feat.

You can check them out at Urban Outfitters, where the Herschel Supply Co.’s bags are going for $59 a pop, or at the Herschel Supply Co. website, where they’re going for $54.99 – I guess it’s what’s more convenient for you.
