I have designated bags for certain different purposes. For example I have a travel tote just for airline travel. A gym bag that’s also a tote for the gym, and so on. I gravitate towards leathers as they are as a material, a cut above the rest. Always classic and chic, the minimal ones often stand out more. When I walk down the street I AM the bling, not the bag. Know what I mean? Coming in both black and tan, this buttery soft tote bag from designer Beth Goodman, focuses on the minimal. The classic shape is timeless, hip and is always modern. Made in the USA from cowhide. Double handles and unlined interior. Height: 14″ / 35.5cm. Length: 12″ / 30.5cm. Depth: 5″ / 13cm. Strap drop: 6″ / 15cm. I would add this to my collection of leather travel tote bags. Stat.
