Sandro 'Avril' Velvet Backpack

Diego Zuko for Harper's Bazaar
Have you noticed how backpacks are suddenly 'cool,' again? And not because it's back-to-school season. And it's certainly not books and a pencil case that I'm thinking about in regards to this cute Sandro backpack (available here, $340). This new crop of backpacks isn't your average Jansport (which was the brand to carry in my long since passed middle school years).

The 'Avril' is a wonderfully rich velveteen shade of green/teal, and just the right size for everyday use. I'd been debating whether to buy it, until I saw this photo of model Hanne Gaby Odiele, taken during New York Fashion Week this past week, sporting the very same backpack. Oddly enough, Sandro's website doesn't list the bag's dimensions (only that it's a 'unique' size and 'true to size'), so it was a relief to see that the backpack wasn't one of those disproportionately-tiny-for-your-back mini-backpacks that were so popular in the 90's (for nostalgic kicks, see this Buzzfeed list of the 'ugliest 90's backpacks,' a mini white Guess backpack included). Okay, one more photo. I might be a bit obsessed:
