Chances are, you have a leather handbag somewhere in your wardrobe, whether it’s the workhorse you haul to the office every day or the tiny shoulder bag you wear on a night out. There’s a reason why the material is so ubiquitous: it’s durable, ages elegantly, and thankfully comes in a myriad of shades, textures, and patterns. Play it safe with a simple, slouchy black leather tote, or instead opt for a structured handheld bag in a bright hue. Either way, there’ll be no fuss about dodging the rain or shielding your bag from potential stains as leather’s patina only makes it look better over time.
We’ve put together a selection of all the leather handbags you’ll want to pick up this season, from classic styles to modern shapes and statement-making silhouettes.
