A.P.C. Backpack

Simplicity is A.P.C.'s strength. Over the past two decades, the French brand has established itself as a purveyor of minimalist, military-inspired staples with few logos, bells, or whistles. The company's understated nylon backpack is no different. From a distance, it looks like a standard campus pack with one main compartment, padded shoulder straps, and an adjustable waist band. But its base is made of beige suede – a subtle, stylish touch that is enough to make this pack work ready. [$205; uscheckout.apc.fr]
