Tote bags are something of a must-have, a versatile accessory more than deserving of its fair share of precious wardrobe real estate. Originally introduced in the ’40s as a sailing bag, it has since soared to popularity as an indispensable handbag, one that is casual yet sophisticated in equal measure. And this design stands as one of the central features of Italian haute couture label Loro Piana’s latest Suitcase Stripe Collection.
Inspired by the suitcases used by the brand’s sales representatives during the ’70s and ’90s – accentuated by the requisite attention-grabbing stripes, of course – Loro Piana’s Suitcase Stripe Collection Tote Bags are available in a multitude of sizes, colours and materials, be it cotton, linen canvas or luxurious cashmere. All come with a water- and stain-repellent finish to ensure you can wear this statement piece come rain or shine.
