A good minimalist bag is harder to achieve than one embellished with every bell and whistle. A.P.C. has hit a home run with this leather shopper made for the city during the week and for the country on weekends. Everyone needs an effortless tote like this, it is good for work and great for play. Totes with a flat bottom and top handles, like this one, fits perfectly on a carry-on wheelie, you loop the straps around the handle of your suitcase and it stays put. The front pocket is not only needed to break up the front of large bag but with a bag this size, the interior can become the abyss, so you need a place to keep things handy. The luggage leather is gorgeous and will take on your personality with use. I am a big fan of A.P.C. basics so I am glad to see they have successfully transitioned into bags with the same carefree feel. At Net-a-Porter for $470.
