When you require both luxury and serious utility, the Bleecker XL Tote from Aimee Kestenberg provides the solution. At 18.5 by 10 by 11.5 inches, it’s large enough to carry everything you need for a full day at the office and the evening to follow while remaining just this side of the oversized handbag line without crossing over to weekender territory. The multipocket exterior proves as functional as the spacious interior, and two pairs of straps allow for hand or shoulder carrying. Made of vintage tanned leather, the Bleecker XL Tote comes in Corvette red, chestnut and black, all with gold-tone hardware. $358.

Handmade by artisans in Italy using the softest Nappa leather, one touch of The Rose Bag by Chau Sáenz reveals a true luxury experience. At once supple and sturdy, this meticulously crafted handbag features multiple, discreet compartments for organized storage of phones, makeup and more, with a D-ring for easy access to keys and a hidden flap for card storage so you won’t need a wallet. Magnetic closures and gold-tone zippers keep compartments fully secure and minimize the profile of this deceptively efficient bag. Available in nero (black), vachetta (brown), cobalt and oxblood, all bags arrive gift boxed with a personalized ribbon and include a dust bag. $1,985.

For a contemporary take on luxury, Atelier Madre–Manuel Drees-
mann brings elevated whimsy with the structurally captivating Anemo bag. The circular bag is approximately 8.3 inches in diameter with a 3.5-inch depth for comfortable storage of your daily essentials and features a top zipper hidden by the petal design of its riveted exterior. Handcrafted in Barcelona with Spanish and Italian leather, Anemo’s shoulder strap adjusts from within, ranging from 46.5 inches to 53.5 inches, and it can be further customized with up to 10 characters of personalized debossing. Available in marine blue, red, olive green and natural. $621.

A sophisticated piece for the whole day, the Michele from Deseri comes with a comfortable daytime strap that detaches for formal evening events. A gold fox head embellishment adds intrigue and personality to this chic clutch, handmade in Spain of 100 percent calfskin leather, and the 10-inch by 6-inch, no-fuss interior can accommodate even the largest phone, along with other must haves for any occasion. With a timeless design available in black or brown leather to complement almost any look, Michele also comes in hot pink for more eye-catching moments. $495.
