Ever since backpacks made their way back into our wardrobes post-graduation, we couldn’t be happier. They’re roomy, easy on our backs and shoulders, and thanks to a few high-end renditions, backpacks are as chic as a sleek leather tote. Designers like Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, Stella McCartney, and much more are all making black leather backpacks—as if they’re as much of a wardrobe staple as your moto-style leather jacket or a pair of black ankle boots. So if you’re looking for an alternative to your coveted Phillip Lim “Pashli,” Proenza “PS1,” or even your Alexander Wang “Rockie” that’s both street style-and-It-Bag-worthy, check out our slideshow of designer-name backpacks in all-black leather; they’ll instantly upgrade your day/work outfits once you throw them on.
