Chic City Sacs: Bags to Match a Destination

From guarding all travel-related tidbits to elevating an outfit, fewer wardrobe items make a more important vacay staple than a trusty day bag. We unpack four fab sacs suited to your next city sojourn.

Where: Bali
What: Antonello Tedde Capriccioli carryall

Wicker sacs are enjoying an enduring fashion moment across Seminyak thanks to a never-ending feed of beach-frolicking Insta-snappers, but for something a little more sophisticated, toss your coastal kit into one of Antonello Tedde’s hand-woven pompom totes. Each bag – roomy enough to fit all the essentials and fashioned in a colour duo of your choice – is beautifully crafted from naturally dyed wools and recycled cotton yarns.

Where: Los Angeles
What: Simon Miller Bonsai bag

In a city as label-conscious as La La Land, arm candy and style cred go hand in hand. Up your aesthetic game with one of Simon Miller’s dainty Bonsai bucket bags, made from creamy nubuck leather. Featuring a statement rainbow-speckled acetate circular handle, these teensy open-top pouches may not be the most functional, but who gives a jot when you look like you’ve practically waltzed straight out of the pages of W Mag?

Where: Paris
What: Digerolamo Sofia satchel

Sure, La Ville Lumière may be the birthplace of the globe’s grandest of fashion houses, but when it comes to street style, Paris is all about understated chic. Cue Digerolamo’s sleek leather crossbody satchel, available in an array of bold hues and sporting chic, simple laser-cut detailing and a nifty gold clasp. Better still, the shoulder strap is detachable, transforming it into a covetable clutch by night.

Where: Hong Kong
What: MISCHA Jet Set Tote

Whether you’re flitting between the city’s boutiques and beaches, stashing all-weather kit, or are juggling more tots toys than Octomom, MISCHA’s classic Jet Set Tote is the perfect all-occasion carryall. With its lightweight, waterproof fabric, funky geometric print and made-in-Hong-Kong edge, it’s no wonder the signature sac can be found slung over the shoulders of every resident stylista.
