Today was my first full day in NYC for Fashion Week, and god is it cold! It’s supposed to snow on Sunday, which got me thinking about which bag to carry (shocking, I know). You don’t want to risk ruining supple leather or precious metals, so what do you turn to? PVC! Or faux leather at the very least. I’m not saying you can necessarily go singing in the rain with all of these, but as long as you’ve got a little cover from your umbrella, you can trust these totes will be able to brave the storm and come out on top.
Kenzo Leather-Trimmed Palm Tree-Print PVC Tote: This palm-tree print will transition seamlessly into summer, especially if you have a beach vacay coming up. On NET-A-PORTER for $385.
Givenchy Antigona Shopping Bag in Floral-Print Faux Leather: Everything’s coming up Givenchy roses! From men’s Birkenstock-inspired sandals to this perfectly seasonal tote, I can’t get enough of the darkly romantic print. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,085.
Marni Printed PVC Tote: Love spring florals, but hate over-the-top rainbow bouquets and frills? Marni’s off-beat style is on-trend, minus all of the frou frou details. On NET-A-PORTER for $340.
Etro Mirabella Shopper Tote: Stare for long enough and this is like one of those optical illusion grids you see in the newspaper – guaranteed to transfix onlookers. On Farfetch for $683.46.
Dolce & Gabbana Leather-Trimmed PVC Tote: This is the most convenient option for a trip like mine. Carry the clutch when it’s nice out, then throw it in the PVC tote once the snow rears its ugly head. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,145.
