The Classic Backpack

The original: Who doesn't remember strapping on a brand-new backpack before taking the long walk to the bus stop on the first day of school?

The update: As happy we are at the resurgence of backpacks on the runways, we're sticking with a more elevated take on the carryall classic. Sure, bold pops of color still work, but for the office, we're tending toward neutrals. In lieu of plastic zippers and nylon fabrics, try those with drawstring or satchel closures and more luxe finishes, like leather and wool.
