This season, with many designers having redesigned it, the biggest trend in terms of men accessories is the statement backpack.
There is probably nothing more practical than a backpack. So it’s good news that they are the season’s hottest trend.
A man named Gerry Cunningham, owner and creator of Gerry Outdoors, is credited with the two biggest innovations that would, decades later, lead to the modern school backpack: the use of zippers and nylon for day bags. In 1938, he made a rucksack with two zippered compartments, and in 1967, he improved his design and came up with the nylon backpack.
