I've long been searching for the perfect "city" backpack—something that's functional, practical, can carry plenty of stuff, but is also perfectly stylish. You'd be surprised, but it's actually hard to find such a backpack with all of these must-haves. Most backpacks are too sporty, too collegiate, or too boring.
I'm in San Francisco every Monday and I already have a fantastic laptop backpack, but I end up having to bring an entire other tote bag for my lunch and water bottles. So, I've been on the hunt for a bag that could carry everything as I traipse up and down hills to get to my acting class.
Enter: The Metropolitan Backpack from Lee Coren in black vegan leather with a black faux suede/confetti upper section. I think it's perfect, and at $139, so does my bank account. Or better yet, so does my Christmas wish list!
This darling backpack meets all of my needs and it's made by the lovely Lee Coren, whose work I adore. This LBB can carry two S'well water bottles, contains a zipper inside pouch for keys and your phone, and another pouch for easy access to lipstick and change. It also has a hidden pocket that faces your back to keep valuables away from thieves.
