Last month, mini bags were big news, and while we won’t be saying “goodbye” to our beloved teeny-tiny crossbody phone bags anytime soon, we are giving a huge welcome to the latest it-bag of the season, the oversized tote.
Perhaps a little more convenient than the mini bag, the oversized tote is ideal for those who want never compromise practicality for style. Forget carefully selecting what you can fit in your bag for the day and instead, dump it all in there and head out of the door.
As a company that holds sustainability close to our hearts, we believe trends aren’t just for one season - a bag can be for life, not just for the summer! This is why our collections consist of timeless designs crafted from gold standard leather, and our oversized tote collection is no different! So, let’s dive in and take a look at our fashionably functional designs. . . .
Have you ever done the work commute with three different bags on your arms to carry everything you need for the day? I have. Not only does it kinda cramp your style, but it also isn’t exactly comfortable either.
With the Pure Luxuries London ‘Arundel’ extra-large shopper bag you will have enough room for your laptop, lunch box, gym clothes (for the dreaded post-work workout), and anything else you need to help get you through the working week (gin anyone?).
A black oversized tote is the LBD of the bag world - a timeless classic, however, the ‘Arundel’ is also available in our beloved Ombre Chestnut and Saddle Tan. I also love the fuss-free central compartment and with the zip-over top, I won’t be losing my belongings along with my marbles.
Who wants to spend money on garish plastic bags when you could carry around a luxurious leather handbag instead?! The Pure Luxuries London ‘Pembury’ bag is the perfect shopping buddy. Whether you are grocery shopping or updating your wardrobe, there is plenty of space for all of your purchases.
The ‘Pembury’ extra-large shopper bag is available in a range of different colours for every outfit, but my personal favourite is the beautiful Misty Rose. Both chic and practical, the press stud closure, means you can effortlessly chuck in anything and everything that you buy and keep them safe and secure at the same time!
Whether you are planning a day at the beach or a picnic at the park, you will need a trusty tote to carry everything you need to make the most of your day. With the ‘Milton’ extra large tote bag, you won’t have to choose between the two most important essentials for any summer day - Pimm’s and sunscreen, there is enough room for both, plus the kitchen sink!
Crafted from gold standard leather, the ‘Milton’ is durable enough for whatever the day throws at you and the zip-over top is perfect for keeping your belongings secure. I think the colour Smoky Blue is a perfect choice for beach days and compliments every outfit, especially our Faye’s favourite trend, the famous ‘Coastal Grandmother’!
Fancy a weekend away? Forget the bulky suitcase or multitude of bags to cart onto trains and Ubers and pack your favourite oversized tote instead! Make travelling that little lighter with the Conkca London ‘Eliza’ extra large shopper bag.
With a zip-over top (a must for travelling) and its spacious design, it is the perfect travel companion. While on your trip, it will also double up as a super stylish and practical bag no matter what your itinerary is. With three versatile colours to choose from, you won’t need any other bag to see you through your adventures.
Last but certainly not least in our oversized totes collection is the ‘Ripley’ extra large shopper bag, perfect for carrying anything you might need for a day with the family. We all know how unpredictable children can be - muddy knees, hunger pangs and little accidents happen and now you can be prepared in style!
The shade Ombré Chestnut is versatile, stylish and incredibly durable and with the leather outer and unlined interior, it is super easy to wipe down and keep clean, no matter what the day throws at you.
