(Harper Ave.)

We've found the holy grail of backpacks — one that won't make you look like a teen runaway. Harper Ave's 'Le Corb' (named for Le Corbusier) is done up in slick gray patent leather with white trim, as a nod to the modern architect's love of concrete.

It has a convenient side pocket so you can access your phone/wallet/metro card without maneuvering the whole thing off of your back. Plus, it's slightly oversize, which means you can use it as a weekend or overnight bag. Depending on how good at packing you are.
