Here it is again, what the French call “La Rentrée”, or getting back to
our routines after the summer break. This means the time has come to
go back to school (or to the office), but it is also the return of the
new: new books, films, music, and new trends are already waiting for
us now that September is here.
You will probably still have the glow of your beachy tan, which will help
start a “holiday” conversation on your first day back at the office. And,
even if you are already missing the sun and the laziness, there is also a
good side to it: now you can wear the Chanel mini backpack that got us
crazy since we saw it at the shows last February. But don’t expect to fill
it with tons of books like you used to do with your highschool Eastpack.
This one is literally mini: there’s only room for your notebook, a pen, your
phone, keys, a lipstick… and not much more.
Mix it with a slightly oversized mini skirt and a Basketball-inspired jacket
to add a preppy-Ivy League touch. Are you already nostalgic of your summer
friends: denim cutoff shorts, crazy bold sunglasses or slogan T-shirts? Don’t
worry, you can still wear your ET or Goonies T-shirts (now with a leather
perfecto on top), or stick to your colourful manicure.
All you need to start the new season can fit in this mini backpack or combines
perfectly with it.
