The Best Designer Work Bags

After a long year of working from home in our sweatpants and underwear, our work bags have laid forgotten in our homes. Now that people are regaining a sense of normalcy and returning to their pre-COVID routines, many of us are slowly venturing back into the workplace.

Finding a bag that strikes a perfect balance between fashion and utility for working professionals can be difficult. After all, many of us are looking for a bag that serves as a carryall for all of your work essentials, including a laptop.

Below are some fashionable suggestions to consider when choosing your perfect designer work bag.

The Antigona bag is the ultimate boss bag in durable black leather. Antigona is a heroine in Greek mythology, and her namesake design reflects Givenchy’s duality in its strong, architectural shape and contrasting soft leather finish.

This is a great bag to carry when meeting clients or walking into a boardroom meeting.

4. Saint Laurent Unstructured Tote by YSL

This sleek Saint Laurent tote comes with flat leather handles that make it comfortable to wear on one's shoulders. The bag comes with a zippered pochette for your valuables and is made of high-quality supple leather that feels luxurious to touch.

With the exception of the leather-encased metal interlocking YSL signature charm, the bag is a subtle alternative for those who are averse to flashy bags or logos.

This bag is most suitable for those who like to keep the inside of their bags organized.

6. Ophidia Tote by Gucci

With the classic GG motif and web stripe, the Ophidia tote is for those who prefer a flashier look with their workplace attire. The long leather handles allow this bag to be easily carried as a shoulder bag, and the inside of the bag is lined with a suede-like microfiber.

Additionally, this bag is made with materials with low environmental impact since it contains leather made through an alternative chrome-free tanning process.

7. Oh! Tote Ruban by Moynat

This iconic tote bag exudes the essence of Parisian chic and is crafted in the house's emblematic Toile 1920 M monogram canvas originally rendered by the painter Henri Rapin in 1920. The lightweight totes are adorned with full-grain leather trims and come in various sizes and colors.

While it is common to see Louis Vuitton Neverfull or Gucci Ophidia Tote bags, the Moynat Oh! Tote stands out as something unique.

8. Daily Battle by Fauré Le Page

"Armed for seduction" is Fauré Le Page's signature catchphrase. Hence, the name of this bag. Originally, Fauré Le Page started off as a firearms manufacturer in Paris in 1729. The écailles or fish-scales motif resembles patterns of early mail-coats and armor.

Unlike most tote bags, the Daily Battle features adjustable shoulder straps so that the bag can be carried comfortably.

9. Luggage Bag by Celine

This classic Celine bag was first introduced in 2010 by former creative director Phoebe Philo. Its unique design and functionality have made it a highly coveted bag.

Interestingly, the design on the bag is intended to look like a face with a zipper resembling a mouth. It looks a little bit like a robot face, right?

10. Galleria by Prada

The Galleria is a simple and elegant everyday bag for the workplace. With its classic silhouette, the bag can be carried by hand, in the crook of your elbow, or on your shoulder. This bag is made with saffiano leather; a textured leather stamped cross-hatch pattern with a wax treatment.

As a result, the bag is highly scratch-resistant and durable.

11. Book Tote by Dior

Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri first introduced the Book Tote. With its large size, the bag has been designed to hold all the daily essentials, including a laptop.

The bag is embroidered with the Dior Oblique motif with the "CHRISTIAN DIOR" signature on the front. The Book Tote can be worn over the shoulder or carried by hand.

However, since the bag is primarily made out of fabric, it is not as durable as a leather bag.

12. St. Louis Tote by Goyard

The St. Louis Tote is a lightweight unstructured bag that can quickly expand to fit large items, or it can fold up to fit in your desk. The bag features the hand-painted Goyardine fabric bag and is completely reversible.

The Goyardine fabric comes in various colors, including yellow, red, blue, green, and white. It has a removable pouch for quick and easy access to your valuables.

Similar to the Dior Book Tote, this bag is not as durable as leather bags since it is made from linen.

13. Arco Tote by Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta is known for its high-quality leather. The stunning Arco Tote features the brand's iconic Intrecciato woven pattern. Intrecciato is a technique created by Bottega Veneta in the late 1960s.

Initially designed for producing clothing, this technique was later applied to superfine leather. This bag is large enough to fit a laptop, water bottle, and snacks.

15. Onthego by Louis Vuitton

Although the Onthego has not been around as long as the Neverfull, this bag has quickly gained popularity due to its unique design and versatility.

The Onthego comes in the Monogram Giant and Monogram Reverse Canvas for those who like logos. The bag also comes in the Monogram Empreinte and Epi leathers for those who prefer a more subtle look.
