Black tote bags – 5 options for the ultimate travel handbag


A black tote bag is one that no luxury traveller can do without. Large, spacious and easy to open and access all your items – it is one of the staples of my ‘travel outfit’.

Why is it so important? It goes with everything. It can fit all your electronics (namely a laptop, very easily), phones, cables, magazines, wallets and the lot. And your passport. And some token airport purchases.

I have been ‘expanding’ my black tote bag collection, so here are some options which I love:

 

T Tote by Tom Ford

From £695 from MyTheresa.com 

I have been on a Tom Ford (make up and fragrance) binge – so I decided to add this beauty to my collection. It is beautifully made and I promise, keeps everything in its place.

Tumble Lady Bag by Mansur Gabriel

USA & Canada: $1195 

For Europe, from £975 – see Matches Fashion and Net-a-Porter for colour options

My latest handbag brand crush – I have gone to great lengths to secure my first one. This brand is relatively new and US based (but in Europe it is stocked by Matches Fashion and Net-a-Porter). The issue, is that you cannot get every colour and model, so with the help of a lovely lady, I got mine exactly how I wanted it from NYC: in tumble, so it can be kicked around a little bit on planes and everywhere.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull in Epi Leather

From £1390 (but not available to purchase online)

This was the designer tote bag that started this trend… almost 10 years ago. Mine isn’t that old and really really has clocked a lot of airmiles. And shall continue.

 

Panama Large Tote by Smythson

From £795

I am really impressed with Smythson‘s leather good collections – namely handbags, as they really have become so modern over the last couple of years. I have actually purchased a few bags and items from them over the past 2 months, including wallets and cannot recommend them enough.
