    i think it looks gaudy.

    backbacks, imo, only look "good" when it's in a technical way, and if you try to "stylize" it you end up looking like a hypebeast fool (just my 2 cents).

    if you want something stylish go for a canvas messenger or shoulder tote, euro style!

    ^ I agree. I think a LV monogrammed anything would detract from your new wardrobe.

    Marc Jacobs had some fancy backpacks but that was quite a while ago and I doubt you'd find one now.
    Bottom line, you should either you get a functional, simple looking black backpack or look for another kind of bag.

    Ugh not feeling that backpack at all.

    stickonatree is right about the technical bit, get something from Northface or Oakley.

    No way. A backpack for that price is nearly an oxy-moron

    Me no like that LV one---- I have a black leather Dolce and Gabbana backpack that I've had for 12 years and it is still holding strong.

    My next bag purchase will be either of these two from Berluti.

    What could be more trying-too-hard than a backpack with a designer's name on it?

    I don't like backpacks in general, the one Chronoaug posted is beutiful though.
