The rucksack is back and it’s sleeker than ever. Whether you’re heading to work, hitting the gym or taking the kids to school, this is the ultimate wear-anywhere style

I started wearing a rucksack about six months ago – initially as a carry-all for days when I was heading to the gym or needing to bring my laptop home from work. Since then, it’s become my everyday go-to (much to the dismay of my designer handbag collection), and rarely a day goes by when I don’t receive a compliment on it. The draw? It’s practical, cool and I have a lot less back pain than I used to. This sleek, water-repellent M&S Collection design comes with multiple zips and pockets to keep your essentials secure. With chic rose-gold details, it ticks the style box while lending every look an air of effortless luxury. Functional and fashion-forward? We’re sold.
