When you're constantly jetting to and fro, you need a bag that will get you through the TSA lines and your Sunday morning brunch meeting. When in doubt, choose a sleek leather tote. Roomy enough for all your carry-on essentials (passport, DSLR, laptop, facemask, portable battery, and neck pillow), yet stylish enough to transition into your weekend brunch bag--it's the bag that's any frequent flyer's bread and butter.
The explorative at heart can't be weighed down by tons of baggage! Instead they opt for a simple, sleek crossbody. Its small and compact body fits snug around the waist and has loads of pockets, perfect for keeping all your work essentials organized and close at hand--meet your new partner in crime.
When you're a busy woman with an endless to-do list, you basically live at the office, which means your work bag needs to work overtime as well--kick your work bag game into high gear with a structured backpack. With multiple interior pockets to keep your work essentials organized, comfy shoulder straps that ensure an even distribution of weight, and an ultra sleek exterior--the structured backpack will kick your regular weekday satchel to the corner.
Keep it simple and understated with a classic shoulder bag. With just enough space to store all your sketching materials, its ultra slim body won't weigh you down--go ahead, let your artistic side run free.
Style meets functionality with a sleek crossbody camera bag. Multiple compartments keep your DSLR and work essentials close at hand, freeing your hands up to design, swatch, and create, to your heart's desire.
Getting things done means a lot of grunt work, which means you have no time for dainty and delicate purses--you need a bag that works just as hard as you. A structured leather satchel is the only way to go, chic and highly functional, it's easily your leather clad counterpart. Take on the world in style.
You're the classic triple threat. When you're running all over the place pitching, writing, and shooting your own work--you need a bag that packs a punch as well. A slouchy tote will be your best friend. Its soft exterior is perfect for weaving in and out of crowds, and its roomy body expands to store your laptop, camera lenses, pens, notebook, phone, dictaphone, and what seems like endless miles of cables and plugs.
