Fashion Week in New York has come to an end and now it’s off to London, then Milan, then Paris. Traveling the world for work may be the dream of many, but lugging your life around cobble stone roads in heels, is not. That’s why this NY Fashion Week was the ultimate test of handbag durability and style.


Our first choice is from Echo Design. A collection of variable prints, styles and fabrics provide something for every lifestyle. At first glance it seemed like every other bag – large in size, but no room to fit anything but your wallet and phone. But after attending 10 shows and 3 parties in one day and returning home with more than I left with, I felt like Mary Poppins unloading my never ending medicine bag.

Created in briefcase structured style, this shoulder satchel was hand-made in New York with genuine leather. Available in 3 limited edition colors – brown, red and navy – it offers room to hold everyday necessities and an inner zip pocket. And to top off Brooklyn Industries Click Satchel Leather Bag sleek design, it offers a top flap with toggle closure for easy access.


For a similar style with the cross body and handbag option, Madewell “the lovelock tote” is your choice. Its brass lock detail and slouchy leather material is reminiscent of vintage bookbags.

And if matte finishes aren’t your cup of tea, Orla Kiely Soft Patent Leather Tillie Bag high gloss finish is for you. With a punched stem detail on front and top zip closure, its soft crinkled patent leather makes it more malleable than other hand bags, while maintaining the ability to stand upright.

We didn’t forget you ladies who carry only your cards and electronic devices. Brooklyn Industries Pop Leather Ipad Case/Carryall fits an Ipad, cash and cards. Doubling as a clutch, this leather carryall fits all you need for a fun night out with your girls.

Still want a strap for security? Chou Chou Crossbody by LeSporstsac fits just the bare necessities for today’s digital girl.
