Carro Makes Awesome Backpacks Out of Menswear

CARRO has entered the design world with their first big project: sportcoat backpacks. The company, which translates to "car" ('cause that makes sense), is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The sportcoat backpacks are original but also familiar, because of the easily recognized material.

The herringbone pattern is particularly awesome. Wearing a sportcoat backpack that matches your sportcoat would be utterly amazing.

Implications - In a world that seems like everything has already been done, simply testing out new or unconventional fabrics may be the little boost a fashion or art designer needs to spark creativity. By incorporating different materials, one can reinvent old products, giving them new twists and a completely different look and feel that may reach a market segment you never expected.
