It isn’t clear when exactly shopper totes came into existence. But from research, they date back to 19th century. Of course those shoppers tote look nothing like the designer ones saturating the market these days.
Here are some shopper totes that are nothing short of spiffy!
1. OC Tokyo Bag, $800.00, Opening Ceremony
Rich chestnut color in calfskin leather. The mouth has a little v detail, a small detail that actually makes a huge difference to the look of the bag because it looks like a bag you can easily tote around for occasions when you need to gussy up more.
2. Kingsland Shopper, $795.00, McQ Alexander McQueen
Want your shopper tote extra glam and flashy? Try this gold-tone one from Alexander McQueen. Check out the razor blade charm. Unique, eh?
3. Cherry Zipped Tote, $595.00, See by Chloe
Chic black cowhide leather bag that oozes classic beauty. With more than a touch of vintage detail (check out the tassel), you can easily add this to your vintage ensembles.
4. Stepney Tote, $835.00, McQ Alexander McQueen
First Gold Tone and now a bag with a color interestingly named as oxblood. Add a little shine to your vintage style outfits, why don’t you?
5. Zoe Shopper, $595.00, Rachel Zoe
Trust Rachel Zoe to inject edginess to classic totes. I love the versatility of this bag, which is actually the intention of the designer. You can gussy up in corporate attires or deck yourself in leather high waisted pants with perforated details at the hem and still look fashionable with this bag in tow.
Shopper totes – they are definitely different now but the good news is, shopping is not the only occasion where you can take them.
