Three weeks ago, I happened to stumble upon Strathberry while in London. As I strolled by their Burlington Arcade storefront, their window display of sleek, artisan handbags sparked my attention and begged me to pop in. So I did. Once inside, I was met with a pleasant surprise.
Strathberry is a Scottish brand started in 2013. The brand was initially a UK project to fill the void of Scottish accessories designers on the market. In 2015, a Kickstarter was launched to help the company. With its tremendous success, and funds raised, the brand was able to grow a following and quickly expand. Now their handbags, topped with a gold bar as their trademark, can be found in stores across the world and online.
The Perfect Work Bag
The Strathberry Tote caught my eye as I entered the cozy shop. Made with supple, premium leather, this design comes in 4 different sizes and a myriad of colors. Immediately, this bag signaled “the perfect work bag.” Styled as a modern, feminine briefcase/ everything bag, the Strathberry Tote (regular) is spacious, dominating and professional, yet refined and extremely ladylike. Perfect for the professional woman who can command any audience or the masterful navigator who prefers subtlety.
The collection doesn’t stop there. Meghan Markle is a huge fan of the brand and has been photographed sporting their East/West Mini crossbody bag. Since Meghan’s debut with the brand, it has achieved global recognition with several celebrities choosing to accessorize with one of its many designs. After learning about the product and feeling the quality, I can see why.
Strathberry designs are the definition of clean lines, elegant styles, and sleek craftsmanship. I highly recommend investing in the Strathberry Tote, if you are looking for a new work bag.
