What's the new Fjallraven Kanken?

East London filter: who makes backpacks practical enough for the gym but cool enough for a Hackney bar? Fjallraven is the obvious answer but literally everyone I know has one and it's getting out of hand.

I'm currently rocking two bags - one a tiny Coach handbag and one a generic tote full of gym stuff.
This is tiresome and I want to combine. I need a backpack which I won't be ashamed to be seen with a) at work b) at the gym or c) in a standard-issue pub.
The ubiqitous Fjallraven Kanken bag is the obvious, perfect answer, which is exactly why I can't just get one of those. Everyone else is way ahead of me on this one.
I can't find anything else I like, however, and I suspect I'm not looking in the right places.
So: what brands can I be looking at for an equally minimalist, stylish, understated alternative? I will use this thing every day of my life so am happy to spend anything up to ~£100 on it.
