The fad for this practical and work-friendly bag for men and women continues in full-throttle mode with a burst of sophisticated new styles that are a far cry from the back-to-school classic. That’s because the trendiest designers and brands have lately ramped up the backpack’s cool factor via a variety of materials, colors and embellishments that are as desirable as they are versatile.

Relaxed elegance to sling, strap, stuff.
