If The Row's $39, 000 alligator backpack can sell out, then perhaps this style of bags isn't strictly for students after all. Sonia Rykiel's clearly counting on it with the release of her Ligne Penelope.
This certainly isn't in The Row's league, but there's a real sophistication to this quilted nylon knapsack. Its taupe color is elegant, and the hue sets off the golden rivets beautifully. The chocolatey calfskin looks to dress things up a bit, but I'm not sure we really need it, especially considering how it affects the bag's bottom line.
The use of nylon makes this backpack very light and easy to keep clean. Its design is very smart, with two patch pockets inside the generous interior, two flap pockets on the sides and a zippered pouch hidden underneath the front flap. Its shoulder straps are adjustable for just the right fit, and padded too for comfort.
Frankly though, at $540 it's just too expensive. Not The Row expensive, but still too pricey for a bag with only a little genuine leather. Look for this one on sale or you'll never see enough value for your dollar.
