PHOTOS: Gucci Jumps On The Backpack Bandwagon

You heard it here first. Backpacks are the new thing. We love them, Mary-Kate Olsen rocks them, and even Suri Cruise has one. And if it’s good enough for Suri, it’s good enough for Gucci.

While perusing images from Men’s Fashion Week in Milan, we were especially struck by the Gucci Men’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Those shorts, those silk tops, that leather, that…wait…is that a backpack we see? Wait… is that three backpacks we see? Actually, make that six backpacks!

That’s right. Just on the cusp of the trend, Gucci has made not one, but an array of leather backpack-style bags — along with a collection of briefcases that we also are in love with. And while we don’t want to seem as though we began the trend but… we told you so.

Here are the backpacks from Gucci’s S/S 2011 Men’s Collection — our favorite being the blue texturized rucksack.
