“New year, new me” is a philosophy that many live by, but while some may choose to renew themselves mentally or spiritually, others (like us) see it as an opportunity to renew their work bags.
Don’t splash out on a number that’s statement or too trendy for the office. Instead, opt for safer, versatile pieces in blacks, neutrals or whites. Those who are more adventurous can go for crimson or deep red.
Here, our top 10 picks at every price point so that everyone can live up to the mantra of “new year, (new bag) new me”.

Featuring both grained and smooth calf leather, this bag will instantly elevate your workwear.
