Super-luxe backpacks

Word is that shoulder bags are out this season, while clutches and top-handle totes are in. Let's get real. How many of us can lug around our daily stash in a handheld bag, typically stuffed with a MacBook, while juggling an iPhone, a latte and possibly kids or pets? One solution is the super-luxe backpack, also known in certain circles as the knapsack or sling. Some of these can be pricey, climbing into the aspirational fashion territory of the esteemed Hermes Birkin handbag, which starts at about $10,000. Here are some that hit today's trends but are also timeless, ensuring that the investment backpack has a lasting place on the closet shelf. --Ingrid Schmidt
