Sources reported Thursday that a student spotted with a Fjällräven backpack must have a deep appreciation for Swedish culture.
“Fjällräven Kånkens are the epitome of Nordic style,” Kody Brooks ‘19 remarked upon spotting the girl in Faunce. “You can tell right away that this girl is deeply immersed in Scandinavian culture. I mean, she is wearing Adidas right now, but, judging from that backpack, she probably rocks clogs all the time. Like ABBA, her favorite band, probably.”
“Swedish people are the coolest,” Brooks continued as the girl wrestled to fit her notebooks in the impossibly tiny bag, “and that girl’s basically one of them. Look at that backpack. She definitely smokes cigarettes and has dope street style. Obviously she toned it down today, but most days she’s got to be wearing a giant furry hat or a coat with five sleeves or something.”
Looking on while the sartorial mastermind pondered which slim side pocket to jam her water bottle into, Brooks noted that “she probably speaks Swedish. Everyone in Sweden speaks English, so she probably speaks both. So chill how they’re all bilingual. And? One look at that bag, and you know this girl is super well-versed on the merits of universal health care. That’s so sick.”
As the girl stood to leave, adjusting the thin straps so they wouldn’t dig into her shoulders, Brooks let out an envious sigh. “Probably headed to Ikea,” he mused. “Man, she must run that place.”
