Seen on cosmopolitan commuters and street-style blogs, Herschel bags may be discrete but have garnered a cult following over the last few years. Shunning flashy logos and branded backpacks, these rucksacks have created serious hype thanks to their understated minimalist design and simple but cool colourways and trims. Imitating the style of vintage mountaineering backpacks, Herschel bags are named after a small town in Canada with no fewer than 30 people. You won’t need an ice pick or an extensive knowledge of knots and ropes to sport a Herschel bag, instead, an appreciation for classic design and timeless vintage accessories is all that is required to tote one of these iconic backpacks!
