A Find: A Messenger of Change
April 23, 2006
Why: It can be tough to make the backpack-to-purse transition, even after youâ€™ve made that all-important college-to-real world transition. On the one hand, purses are so sleek and stylish. They say, â€œIâ€™m not lugging around 60-pound textbooks anymore, world!â€ But your old college backpack was just so functional: roomy, full of useful pockets, and a comfortable way to haul everything for your day from one place to the next. Kenneth Cole has a great transition bag in his Stitch in Time model. Itâ€™s made from soft, full-grain Nappa leather (an elegant alternative to backpack canvas) and has an exterior rear zipper pocket for added storage space. Tote it like a purse, or adjust the shoulder strap to carry it like a messenger when youâ€™re on the go. It’s work-ready for the young professional and anyone still stuck in backpack limbo.
