Vintage Designer Tote Bags

A tote bag is a large and often unfastened bag with parallel handles that emerge from the sides of its pouch. Praised for its joint practicality and style appeal, the tote bag has gone from ice hauling tool to fashion staple and is the unrivalled handbag hero for everyday use. First introduced in 1944, the tote bag was billed as a bag made of builders' canvas for hauling ice and has since paraded its way into popular culture.

In the 1960s, the style value of the bag was first brought to light through Bonnie Cashin’s “Cashin Carry Tote Bags”, and in the 1990s Kate Spade cemented the tote as a fashion accessory, which has been a seasonally recurring staple for multiple fashion houses ever since. With its versatile shape and roomy interior, the tote bag invites for great diversity in usage and design. Contemporary designer tote bags have been made in countless variations from supermarket-style bags to more spacious versions of classic shoulder bags, and comes in an array of fabrics and materials.

Some of the most iconic trans-seasonal styles to date include Hermès legendary Birkin and Kelly bags; Mulberry's postman lock signature Bayswater; Stella McCartney’s leather-free chain strap Falabella; and Chloe’s luxurious detail-heavy Paddington. Other fashion houses like Balenciaga, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton and Maison Martin Margiela have given the bag alternative, seasonal twists such as textured embellishments; monogram, logo and cult figure prints; cut-out perforations; and plastic covers. Like a blank canvas, tote bags allow accessory designers to unleash their creativity in full. OfV says: Steady, spacious and effortlessly stylish – there is a reason why the tote keeps coming back.

Whether you opt for a minimal style in smooth luxurious leather or a statement printed seasonal sell-out, the tote bag is the ultimate style staple to complement and accentuate your everyday outfit whilst keeping everything you need close to hand, at all times. Whatever your sartorial taste and carrying needs, our range of pre-owned designer and vintage tote bags will have you covered. Browse the range and bag your new everyday style hero now.
