Yes, we’re on a tie-dye kick. And here’s one more good reason to jump on the bandwagon! Cook & Gates makes vibrant, beautifully designed tie-dye bags in denim, from classic blue and white to purple & deep navy, and they’re the perfect size for toting your stuff to the beach this summer. The line is a collaboration between artists Ethan Cook and Sara Gates, with Brooklyn-based designer Mary Meyer, who releases collections of geometrically printed knits. They range at around $20—$150, so there’s something for you, even if you’re pulling purse strings at the moment. But jump on it, they’re limited!

Nasty Gal’s new summer inventory is loaded with rad jeans and denim accessories we’re all over, but this denim backpack is too cool for school. If you’re packing up your books and hitting the classroom with style this summer or next fall, invest in this chic little carry on that is just the right size for your paper-bag lunch and sociology text. It’s medium wash denim with camel faux-suede panels (gives it a bit of edge compared to the one you may have carried in the ’90s). Slip your cell in the phone compartment inside and you’ll be good to go. Study hard, denim-heads!
