Head of the Class: The 4 Best Bags for Back to School

Face it, kids.  School's just around the corner.   Your pencils are sharpened, your classes are picked out.  And we KNOW you choose your first day of school outfit weeks ago.  But have you picked out this season's hottest accessory - the backpack?

Here are some bags that will make you want to go to school:

Stella McCartney Falabella Shaggy Deer Backpack 
Ok, so we have to admit.  This bag is not cheap.  But it's still a far cry from The Row's $39,000 crocodile backpack, and with it's edgy style and vegan - friendly construction, it's hard to say no.

On the other side of the price spectrum are the Heritage Backpacks by Herschel Supply Company.  Shown here in Cobalt Blue, at $54.99 - why not buy two?

Last, but not least, is Rag and Bone's Herringbone Backpack.  At $395, it ain't free, but with its sturdy cotton and leather construction, this bag should last you K-12, and then all the way through your master's. AND if you've been coveting the Chanel Grafitti Printed Canvas Backpack, this is a good base from which to start your DIY project to get the same(-ish) look.
