SHOP: 10 BEST DESIGNER BACKPACKS + GIVEAWAY featured by popular San Francisco style blogger, Sylvie in the Skye

Fashion plus function make designer backpacks a worthy investment. My daily essentials easily fit in the multiple compartments for the events I’d use it – traveling, music festivals, date night, girls’ night, weekends, coffee pit stops. The timeless backpack design makes me more hands free to push Olive’s stroller and hold Theo’s hand, shop and sip coffee, sing and dance with friends at concerts, and more. And designer backpacks seem to be a trend that’s here to stay.

Here’s my roundup of my 10 favorite designer backpacks worth the splurge, plus an awesome giveaway below.


No 1.

Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack

The Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack is my designer backpack favorite lately, and here’s why – it’s smallest size (this is the one I own) easily fits my phone, card wallet, keys, sunglasses, and essentials like lipgloss, gum, small sunscreen, yet it’s so tiny and easily upgrades the most basic outfit without feeling bulky and cumbersome like some other designer backpacks. The adjustable straps also give it a crossbody style option, which I love too. And the classic Louis Vuitton monogram makes the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack iconic on its own.

No. 2

Chanel Gabrielle Quilted Backpack

This designer backpack is at the tippy top of my wishlist. The classic Chanel quilted leather design, the versatile straps convert this drawstring backpack to a handbag in a cinch, color options include the two tone chanel combos and SILVER, it dresses up any outfit, and it’s the kind of style that I categorize as a “modern heirloom” – I’d save this bag to pass down to Olive when she’s an adult.

No. 3

Gucci Marmont Backpack

The Gucci Marmont Collection is the IT Collection for a reason. Luxurious Italian quilted leather in the signature Gucci Marmont pattern and double G logo make it a statement piece, the simple yet roomy design makes it chic and practical for everyday, and the superior craftsmanship means it’s built to last.

No. 4

Chloé Faye Backpack

You had me at Chloé Faye. This It Bag now comes in a backpack version, with the same signature oversized ring, leather and suede combo, and flap closure details. Impossibly cool in an array of dreamy colors and neutrals, there’s no reason not to make this designer backpack yours.

No. 5

Saint Laurent Monogram LouLou Backpack

The darling Saint Laurent LouLou design stole our hearts with their handbag collection (I love my gray one and use it all the time). Now, the Saint Laurent LouLou has a rad backpack version, with the same padded, quilted design, and signature logo we adore.

No. 6

Valentino Garavani Rockstud Spike Backpack

A little edge goes a long way, and Valentino’s Garavani Rockstud Collection has been the go to edgy accessory for every It Girl under the sun. The backpack version of their recent quilted stud design is just as showtopping as the rest of the handbags, with its Italian leather and expertly detailed stud design.

No. 7

Gucci Tian GG Supreme Backpack

Another reigning design house logo, this GG Supreme Backpack features the famous all over GG print with stunning hand painted art of Chinese landscapes seen in 18th century tapestries and screens. This designer backpack is truly a work of art.

No. 8

Stella McCartney Star Backpack

Star prints and details are still alive and well in the accessory world, and Stella McCartney’s Star Backpack might be the best one yet. Convertible straps turn this backpack into a crossbody in a snap, and the quilted faux leather design with the prettiest bold star detail have me daydreaming about adding this designer backpack to my closet.

No. 9

Mansur Gavriel Calf Backpack

Premium Italian calf leather, interior pocket, adjustable straps, roomy interior, simple and chic flap closure design, and two sizes to choose from – there’s a reason why the Mansur Gavriel Calf Backpack is one of the most crush worthy designer backpacks of the moment.

No. 10

Prada Vela Backpack

Also known as the Queen of Designer Backpacks, the Prada Vela Backpack was one of the first It Bags in history, when it debuted back in 1984. The durable nylon exterior means its spill resistant (wipe off that spilled coffee, baby milk spit up, whatever!), the leather trim keeps the nylon edges from wearing down over time, there are pockets for days, and the largest size is the BEST designer backpack for traveling.

    Love Gucci but I am a plain GG lover. Used to collect them. Not so much anymore as I need to win a few contests.
