Thanks to Louis Vuitton’s Neverfull, the original coated-canvas shopper tote released in 2007, we are spoiled. What could be easier for a day out, particularly one when you're perusing shops and stocking up on new purchases, than a big bag you can toss everything into?

Just like people, many bags prefer certain climates to others. I’m not just talking seasonal styles. While some only function happily on the balmiest days of summer, others are made with winter weather in mind – and the messiness that arrives with it.

This year marks a full century of fine leather craftsmanship from Fontana. The 100-year-old Italian leather house may not rank at the heights of Fendi or Ferragamo (yet), but this is a name all bag snobs need to know. The proof is in their street cred; in the last few years, Cameron Diaz, Sofia Vergara, and Jessica Chastain have been spotted carrying variations of their Afef tote.

Whether in charming mini size or a roomier, classic-tote scale, it’s effortless from work to weekend and whatever happens in between. I’m a sucker for a gorgeous interior, and this one reveals lush suede lining with multiple pockets. Obviously, the outside is just as good. Not only is the look of the design divine, but bless you, Reed, for the slim exterior back pocket that fits the iPhone 6.

I am so loving Nina Ricci's current bag renaissance. My little baby Marche is so cute and perfect for day and night, and it's quite liberating to being able to pack more than just the basics when going out at night. This shoulder style, which easily converts into an oversized clutch, happens to be just as good.

You know when you’re going on a trip, and your friend says, “Pick me up a souvenir”? Well, here is the Italian souvenir to trump all others. Coming in at just about $2,800, this is one serious piece of silly, fanciful kitsch. Is it cute? Of course? Worth a smile? For sure. Guaranteed to spur at least a couple conversations each time you to take it for an outing? No doubt about it. But you also need to be a deeply dedicated fan of Stefano and Domenico, as well as an enthusiast of the region of Sicily in order to justify such a purchase.
