The Briefcase

Ah, the women’s briefcase, a lightweight bag with interior pockets for organisation and necessities. There is nothing more empowering than walking into a room fully prepared for the day ahead of you and holding a Chanel briefcase and stating “I object!”, maybe that only happens in legally blonde. Regardless, we are bringing back briefcases for women and here’s our reasons why.


Comparing it to the usual women’s work bag, which in most instances is a tote, it does lack structure and oftentimes can be tedious to organize. I can state I’m guilty of carrying 4 cosmetics bags in my tote just to keep organised. Meanwhile, a briefcase typically has pockets and storage compartments to make it easy to find what you’re looking for.  The shape of the tote


The briefcase is made for work, so the design and material are made to last.  The handle is made for the weight distribution of the bag to be even. Leather work bags are easy to maintain and restore. Just ask our Luxe Bag Spa specialist


There are days where you are wearing your lucky business outfit, your hair is done and your make-up looks perfect and you do a work presentation and absolutely kill it.  If you look confident, you will radiate energy. A briefcase gives the boss energy, like you’re about to take on whatever the day might hold. 


The bag doesn’t take up much room. It can easily fit under your desk, is comfortable on your lap, and it doesn’t take up much space on a table. The design is sleek and compact, making it perfect for going on the go. The design is meant for your laptop, iPad, a legal pad and other necessities for your day. 

Chanel will always have our heart for briefcases. This sophisticated design with an elegant touch is perfect for work, errands, dinner or a meeting. The caviar leather is durable, the quilting gives it an ultra luxurious feel.  We  recommend this Chanel Vintage Briefcase for work or even as a school bag!
