Sometimes it's all in the details. While a Tote Bag can come in all shapes and sizes, some are more classic in form and function than others. That's where the hardware can make all the difference.
The Utility Handbag has been a meli melo staple style for a few seasons now, and we're still finding new ways to make keep it feeling original. A reworking of the iconic Thela Handbag with its distinctive front flap closure, the Utility Tote Bag features strategic zip details that lend a little toughened finish to this timeless piece. Perhaps the most distinctive of all its features, especially for Pre Autumn/Winter 2015, are the printed inserts at either side. Rich, grained Italian Leather is contrasted by new season prints Deville (a monochrome animal print inspired by fairytale stories) and the Tan Cheetah.
What really makes this such a brilliantly versatile bag, however, is its ability to transform in both size and appearance. For days when you need something a little roomier and the print suits your look, unzip the sides to expand the Handbag to its full potential. Equally, the bag can be downsized to become a more compact, refined piece by zipping the sides back up.
Et voilà, two ways to wear the same bag.
