If you’re looking for a designer bag that ticks off all the boxes – it’ll fit your laptop, house all of your everyday essentials, and serve as a stylish accent to any outfit, look no further than a tote bag. This trusty silhouette safely houses your belongings, fits more inside than a crossbody or shoulder bag and, according to The Real Real’s Luxury Consignment Report 2023, has one of the highest resale values for bags.
We’ve rounded up a collection of our favorite designer tote bags, from classic GG matelasse styles from Gucci to The Tote from Marc Jacobs in leather and canvas. Add a pop of color with Prada’s embroidered studded version or go with the minimal chic of Copenhagen cool-girl brand Ganni’s tan carryall, which is both sustainably made and ethically designed with two top handles, snap button closure and interior zipped pocket.
If you’re feeling particularly luxe, opt for a crocodile-embossed style from Hermes that’ll take your handbag game to the next level. Alternatively, explore sleek leather options from Saint Laurent and Gucci, both of which have been reimagined this season in new colors and shapes.
If you’re looking for a more sustainable option, check out this tote bag from Black-owned label Ree Project.
