This hoodie backpack fuses the high-end elements of a conventional backpack with the comfort and coziness of a hoodie.

High-end street-apparel brand 'Hood By Air,' released a statement piece with its 'Durag Backpack.' The piece is part of its Fall/Winter 2015 collection that furthers the brand that has been often categorized under the "street goth" subculture. The piece itself is made from black leather with conventional design features but with a twist -- the addition of a 'durag' or hood, as well as tassels. Embroidered with its signature logo, the brand displays this item on its website -- knowing it's a piece that will get people talking.

The hoodie backpack may not be the most accessible back-to-school accessory, as it is priced at $1,535.
