Donna Karan Soft Grain Calfskin Backpack

If you thought your days of schlepping a backpack around town ended upon graduation, we urge you to thoughtfully reconsider. Need a little motivation to revert back to your scholarly ways? Study this Donna Karan Soft Grain Calfskin Backpack and you’re headed for straight-A style.

A standout specimen in supple black leather, this backpack is no ordinary knapsack—the textured calfskin exterior, buckle front closures and roomy interior qualify it as a full-fledged luxury carryall. Putting an urban spin on the traditional shoulder bag, Donna Karan‘s keeper looks ultra-modern and sleek when teamed with shiny trousers, a chunky knit and buckle heels. More city slicker than prep school, you’ll be graded like a grownup when donning the haute hold-all—consider this class in style passed!

Availability: Donna Karan Soft Grain Calfskin Backpack ($1695). For additional information, visit
