Longchamp – Le Pliage Backpack
Retailing at £56 (Longchamp)
This is a personal favourite – and judging by the number of these packs I see on the London Underground, a favourite with Brits all round. This comes as no surprise: carrying a well-known designer label, but for a reasonable price, these Nylon bags with leather trim come in a huge variety of colours, from ‘Aniseed’ (Yellow), ‘Pearl’ (Light Grey) and ‘Bilberry’ (Purple) to your more usual blacks and beiges. They are durable, stylish, and perfect for daily use. Smaller than the Herschel, they are not designed for carrying laptops and gym kit, but more as an easier to carry alternative to the handbag.
