Recommendations please for large work handbag. Can be satchel or tote style. No rucksacks. Any colour. Ideally designer.
Currently using MK Jet set but is too small. Need to be able to fit A4 size plus tupperware for lunch and water bottle.

Budget £100- £250

Thank you.

I’ve got an LV never full. It holds everything and looks better the more it ages

Fossil have some great stuff.

I love the fablou bags. The tote would be perfect for what you want. They also do tote liners. I have a few of these bags now and I can vouch for how stain resistant they are! link

I got a DKNY one a few months ago and have found it brilliant for work.

I think is it ink{https://www.johnlewis.com/dkny-chain-sutton-leather-shopper-bag-sand/p4895026\www.johnlewis.com/dkny-chain-sutton-leather-shopper-bag-sand/p489502]]6} (there were a couple of similar styles with slightly different sizes. It fits my computer, just (I have a "small" MacBook pro so not a delicate little thing), note book etc. I have found it extremely useful.

I'm not wild about totes as I lose everything in there.

sorry, messed up link here

I have this one smile

It's great for putting my laptop and work files in I use it daily.

A bit more expensive than your budget but a great bag for work.

Kate Spade have some nice ones & the leather is lovely quality. They have a good sale on too!

Thank you everyone. Some good recommendations on here but still haven't found what I need. Got a few on the shortlist but haven't decided yet

https://www.fossil.com/en-gb/products/carmen-tote/ZB7890213.html I like the size of this one but not sure about the style

I really like this one but it's a bit over my budget https://www.coccinelle.com/en/bags-1/angie-maxi-noir-E1FK0180101001.html?cgid=bags#start=14

The dkny one someone posted is lovely but I was looking for something a bit bigger

So please keep the recommendations coming!

Smythson currently have a sale
Love their bags for work

I like the fossil one but the brown leather doesn't work for me - I wear too much black in the city! [Grin].

I think I looked at the other one or one like it but it was too bug inside - everything would have got lost.

I loved a come.of.chloe ones but they were out or budget for me. Someone said there is a sale?

I have this one and it's perfect. I've used it non stop for nearly a year and it's still as good as new. It's got a zip, which a lot of totes don't, is big enough for everything including a4 notebooks, has pockets inside and the handles are the perfect length. I'm considering buying a second in the sale for when this one finally gives up from overuse!

Just seen it's green - mine is black! I think it's in the Next sale at the moment in black though.

The Nikki leather tote from Shona Easton Designs is my go to work bag. I've got it in black and purple.
