The JanSport brand has been a staple throughout the lives of millennials. Let’s be real, who didn’t have that iconic backpack at one point in their schooling? In 2019, it’s making its way to local retailers, now revamped with a local flair.
In line with their Signature Series, JanSport tapped influential names DBTK (Don’t Blame the Kids Apparel), Sole Academy, and GRIND for collections featuring designs that spotlight their brand personality.
Sole Academy’s rendition of the Right Pack features an embroidered pattern of—surprise, surprise—layers of sneakers in varying hues. You can now match your kicks with this choice backpack, while equipped to be “Best in Class” with its convenient laptop compartment.
DBTK’s collection is simply worded, but it packs a punch. Available in Right Pack, Waisted, and Fifth Avenue variations, it highlights the brand’s name in block letters, while doubling as a statement to show off in society.
Another collection included is GRIND, which comes in three colors of black, red, and blue. The Signature Series line is crafted with the trademark Denier Cordura fabric, lined with suede leather. They’ll be up for grabs in their respective stores and online shops starting Aug. 10, but emphasis on the “limited edition” though. Better cop it while stocks last.
