Rebecca Minkoff’s black leather backpack is super cute for BACK TO SCHOOL. Even if it is your kids who are going back to school or if it is you who is going back to school or just back to regular work hours after a long summer, this is the perfect black leather backpack to wear on the train or just sling over your shoulder so you are hands free for those daily commuting to work tasks. I love it because the hardware is all black and gives the back the perfect neutral palette for you to match your everyday wardrobe from work to drinks to weekends going to Soul Cycle.
Buscemi Black Leather Backpack – if you have not seen the Buscemi black leather backpack or the Buscemi black leather high top sneakers then you may have been under a social media rock. Buscemi and the Greats Brand guys have been taking social media by storm and their well made Italian leather products may have something to do with it. Up until now I have sort of been a bystander when it came to checking out the Buscemi products on social media, but this new PhD backpack by Buscemi is something that had me jump to my feet and take notice. I love this bag because it evokes the feel of a Hermes birkin bag in its front pouch and on the detail of the lock on the side pockets. The backpack by Buscemi is their original design with just a few details that remind me of H. I think that is ok considering most companies will copy a font from a company they like so that consumers will get a subliminal message that they are shopping at the same type of store when they see that same font. Even with this slight similarity I have to say there are so many other differences that make this backpack so unique that it is definitely its own unique style. Bottom line is – I want one. I am sure you do. I want my birkin style backpack. The question is what color?
Valentino Army Green Studded Backpack on sale for 20% off. I am kind of obsessed with backpacks at the moment and am loving the Valentino army green backpack with the rock studs. I love all backpacks right now because it is finally ok to just wear a fashionable backpack with a pair of designer sneakers and go out all day. I love the comfort and the hands free ability of a backpack. You can do everything with a great back. I even walked from my home to the supermarket and back without every worrying about my bag falling off my shoulder this weekend.
The weight of everything in your backpack is always evenly distributed and you look cool now too since backpacks are so in. Some people still just want their cross body bags and I love my crossbody bags as well, but the backpack is just a newer version of sporty look for anyone who spends all their time like me in athleisure. Now I can pull on my leggings, Chanel or Valentino sneakers and go all day with my backpack over one shoulder or both. Either way, you don’t have to worry about wearing heels all day or platforms anymore to look cool because the whole look is about being casual and sporty with your backpack.
Chanel Pre Fall Quilted Leather Backpack – if you are looking for a very cool Chanel backpack, the best one I have seen out there is the Chanel pre fall 2015 quilted leather backpack that comes in a rich burgundy and a black leather. Either are great, I just happened to like the burgundy a little more. Of course these are selling lot hotcakes in the stores so good luck finding one and if you do, don’t hesitate.
Here is why this bag is so great:
1. It comes in 2 sizes 8×10 or 9×12 and can hold all of your daily essentials
2. It is the classic Chanel quilting and the classic turnlock so you won’t have to worry that it won’t be in style next fall. It will become a classic in your closet with a handsfree capacity
3. The colors are neutrals. Whether your buy the burgundy or the black, the bag will go with everything you wear
4. The bag can be casual or dressy. Of course you can carry your Chanel quilted leather backpack with your workout clothes on OR to a business meeting and commuting to work
I found a black version of this new pre fall black quilted backpack here. That is like spotting a unicorn. So go for it.
Mansur Gavriel Large White Backpack – If you are looking for a fresh take on a white bag this summer look no further than the fashion blogger’s favorite – the Mansur Gavriel Large White Backpack. I love the white because it epitomizes spring and summer. It is just the right size to hold a laptop and other essentials while you do your daily commute from home to office. You can carry it after work to an event too or out on the weekend. It is a good looking bag. I like it because the leather is a sturdy beautiful leather that will age with time and become even more supple, but still beautifully crafted. It is Made in Italy which means a lot in terms of quality.

Gucci Backpack Bag in Suede – This authentic vintage Gucci backpack is crafted in velvety nubuck and trimmed with lacquered bamboo toggles, adding classic appeal to the iconic piece. Boxy flap pockets detail the front, and a buckled flap fastens over the drawstring top. Logo-lined interior with 1 pocket. Adjustable shoulder straps and bamboo locker loop. Dust bag included. Must say I wish I hung onto my Gucci backpack I had in the 90’s in a light yellow pretty leather instead of selling it to a consignment store like Vestiare Collective back in the day. Now this bag is available from What Comes Around Goes Around on Shopbop for $998. There is only one left and is pretty cool compared to the new drawstring bucket bag versions out there now. Anyhow one left at Shopbop.com I will say it one more time.
