This Is the New Backpack, According to Vogue

Adrianna Barrionuevo

We see you, Dwyane Wade—and we see the trend-setting fashion you served during Menswear Week in Paris. The dapper Chicago Bulls shooting guard hit the shows with wife Gabrielle Union and accessorized with the trend Vogue says is replacing the backpack. That's right: The cross-body man purse Wade rocked at the Berluti runway show was the accessory of choice for male showgoers throughout the week.

Worn slightly higher than a typical female cross-body bag, the practical, hands-free bag had its moment in the spotlight thanks to the sartorially inclined athlete, who shared his feelings about the murse with the magazine. "Art and fashion collide," he said of a Saint Laurent bag emblazoned with the word "murse." He added, "Finally men have somewhere to hold their stuff!" We couldn't agree more with Wade, who makes a man purse look so darn good and effortlessly stylish. Here's to hoping we see more D-Wade–approved style trends coming our way this off-season.
