Pack your bags with one of the coolest accessories of the season. From the ramps of Paris to the desi runways, the humble canvas backpack has gone through a chic makeover. Take your pick from many interesting variations of the backpack such as the rough-and-tough rucksack, the dependable old haversack or the glammed-up knapsack.

Usually seen on the sports field, a camping site or on the shoulders of a student, the good old backpack is also the latest celeb favourite. Designer Jenjum Gadi claims to be inseparable from his cool, studded backpack. "Backpacks are casual and trendy; I recently got a cool one from Bangkok. Just think out of the box when making a fashion statement with a backpack, owing to its casual vibe," he says.

Pair your printed denims with a patchwork or checkered backpack or team a floral maxi with a neon or colour- blocked knapsack. Designer Nida Mahmood suggests, "You can also go for a metallic-hued backpack and match it with similar hued accessories or metallic shoes." For a more personalised touch, scribble witty one liners with glitter pens or sew on interesting motifs or even glue-on studs, spikes and buttons. Go ahead, get creative and get packin’, guys!
