While the end of summer can be devastating for holiday seeking students, you can still lift your spirits with some back to school shopping. To help with the process, this week we’ve selected the best bags, shoes, accessories and choice clothes to make the transition from lazy vacation to academic productivity in style.
Today, we begin with four bags that can make your school debut a memorable one. Raf Simons‘ collaboration with Eastpak has yielded the most functional and futuristic looking bags this year, and this black and silver take on the messenger bag has just the right measure of pizzazz. If toughness of the sleek variety is what you’re looking for, then Veronique Branquinho‘s black leather bag with oversize pockets can be yours for $445. If you anticipate a lot of things to carry, get Rick Owens‘ large murky-hued Merino Hobo shoulder bag. Those opting for function should consider this Denim Effect Alexander Wang bag, which doubles as a belt and allows just enough room for all the classroom essentials. Stay tuned for more goodies in the coming days.
