Work bags

If you are looking for a bag that is big enough for a laptop yet chic enough for a day in New York, London or Paris, our short list of the best online stores to buy work bags is on hand to help! Below in words and pictures.

The most personal L'Uniform : Woven canvas and leather are combined to produce beautifully made (all stitching, no glue!) and practical bags. From totes to pouches and schoolbags, they all have the option of personalisation.


The most fashionable Clare Vivier: With Collaborations with the likes of & Other Stories and GOOP, this is one brand every self-respecting bag addict should know about.

The most Londonian Milli Millu: Designed for busy women, big enough to fit work essentials, and handcrafted in the south of Spain using the finest Italian and Spanish materials, what more could you ask for? Oh, and for every bag purchased, a donation is made to help create life saving vaccines for children in need. Amazing.


The most Parisian Sézane: As well as a core collection of chic and understated classics, Sézane produces monthly collections that cause near hysteria in her native Paris. Two little words of warning: move fast. When they’re gone, they’re gone! 


The most masculine Good Manners: A range of brands are to be discovered on this site, including the super cool Herschel and the Paris-based Bleu de Chauffe.


The most British The Cambridge Satchel Company: Incredibly well crafted and available in an array of colours and styles, this quintessentially British brand has undergone something of a renaissance of late. Also offers personalisation. Our tip? Gold initials on navy leather are the height of chic.


The most chic – Tila March: When the fashion editor Tamara Taichman decided to create a tote that could accompany her no matter where she was going, she could not have imagined that a few years later her ‘Zelig’ would have become the signature bag of her brand, Tila March, a brand synonymous with chic and timeless accessories.


The most luxury – Sophie Hulme: The English designer combines exuberance with British charm by creating military inspired bags with classic, practical shapes and an attention to detail. In fact, each piece comes with a fun, golden bag charm that has become a real mark of the brand.

The most minimalist – HVRMNNSN: Why do complicated when you can do simple? The Scandinavian brand HVRMNNSN has brilliantly understood the idea of simplicity (in all but their name ;)) as their ultra-minimalist tote bag shows. Made from certified, organic, vegetable-tanned leather, the bags are crafted in Sweden and will add a touch of understated Nordic luxury to your day to day life.
