BAPE / HHV

With a new academic year kicking off in a matter of days, it’s time to stock up on those back-to-school essentials. And while the perfect backpack will be one of your most important pre-term purchases, you mustn’t neglect what goes inside it.

If you’re a sucker for stationery like we are, you’ll have already started your hunt for the perfect notebooks, pens, and desk essentials. Not only will they keep your teacher happy, they’ll low-key be the envy of all your classmates — especially if you’re showing up with a Pickle Rick pencil case on test day.

From first period to lunch breaks — not forgetting those all-important home assignments — we’ve got you covered with all the best stationery and general back-to-school must-haves below. Scroll down to check out our picks.
