Forét Weekend Tote Bag
A canvas tote bag is the perfect casual accessory. This minimalist version from Danish label Forét gets our vote, thanks to its sturdy organic cotton construction, spacious interior and nifty front pocket. It's perfect as a beach bag or market tote. Just throw everything in and go.
Carl Friedrik Anywhere Tote
Upgrade your everyday tote with this slick and sophisticated version from renowned leather goods label Carl Friedrik, which will look just as good in the office as at the weekly farmers' market. Crafted from elegant and hardwearing nubuck leather, it features a laptop compartment, a large zipped pocket and three open fabric pockets for all your daily essentials. A unique zipper locking system that runs down the side of the bag offers ultimate convenience and accessibility.
non Tote Bag
London label non is known for its eco-friendly approach to denim production, which it extends to accessories like this minimalist raw 12oz selvedge denim tote bag. Consciously crafted from 50% recycled and 50% organic cotton, it's a guilt-free purchase that doesn't cost the earth.
RODERER Award Tote Bag
With a 'less is more' philosophy at its core, RODERER creates functional, elegant leather bags and accessories for men. The Award Tote Bag exemplifies the brand's meticulous approach to design and craftsmanship. Handmade from soft grained Italian leather and finished with polished gunmetal hardware, it's a refined take on a classic work bag and ideal for commuting to work or bringing on business trips. The zipped pockets and laptop compartment will keep all your office essentials safe and secure.
Mismo M/S Seaside
This elegant holiday-ready tote bag from Danish bag brand Mismo can be held by hand or slung over the shoulder: it combines elongated leather handles for the shoulder-hung option, while a tightly woven nylon string – resembling traditional sailor rope – serves as the handheld option. A spacious interior features a large magazine compartment to the back and a zipped pocket with two slide-down pockets below to the front.
Closed Canvas Bag
German label Closed may best be known for its impressive denim range, but its selection of accessories is worth checking out, too. We love this classic canvas tote bag, elevated with an elegant leather strap. It's the perfect carry-all for when you're running your everyday errands, but will look just as as stylish in the evening as part of a smart-casual ensemble.
Neutrale I Love Ibiza Tote Bag
In collaboration with iconic DJ Pascal Moscheni, Madrid-based brand Neutrale has designed a new capsule collection that celebrates the beauty of the Mediterranean, in particular Ibiza. This retro-inspired tote bag, complete with a playful dolphin print, is part of that collection. The perfect finishing touch to your summer ensemble.
