Vogue's May 2010 issue contained an article wholly devoted to the ever-essential tote. In saying "article," I may have overstepped the truth. The "article" to which I refer was, in actuality, only a page. While a worthy effort on Vogue's part, a bag so essential as the tote should not be so casually described and should contain far more examples of the bag most women cannot live without. So, without further ado, here are far more examples of the tote than that Vogue article could ever contain:
First up are classics that should grace every woman's (or man's) closet:
the ever-simple, ever-classic, Longchamp Le Pliage Collection
kate spade's big apple bon shopper in gold and silver
Anya Hindmarch Homework Canvas Tote: So fun!
While the above bags are perfect for throwing in a few papers, a little lunch, and other everyday items, these bags below should be reserved for only the best cashmere scarves and other luxuries those who can afford these bags surely have. The below bags are surely not just your "everyday" tote- but carry on the classic lines and style of the classic:
Burberry Fielding Leather Tote: A bit more slouchy and un-structured of a tote, but a beautiful carry-all, nonetheless
Lanvin Birthday canvas tote: TOO TOO Cute!
OH MY GOODNESS, Bag of my Dreams: Bottega Veneta Cocolave Crocodile Tote
Fendi Dotted leather tote: So very cool and a great spin on a classic tote!
Marni Printed PVC tote: Totes cool.
