Check out 10 designer tote bags that can fit your laptop:
Saint Louis Tote ($1,225 to $1,595, roughly P67,576 to P87,987) from Goyard
Although simple in design, Goyard totes are famous for their master craftsmanship. Crafted from coated canvas with the Goyard monogram painted onto each bag. They're not only gorgeous, but they're also practical and designed to withstand the test of time. The Saint Louis tote in particular is the most popular and sought-after piece, driving more than half of Goyard's revenue. It comes in three sizes, PM, GM, and XXL. Even the smallest (PM) can fit a 15-inch laptop and other work necessities you may have.
Open Tulip ($585, roughly P32,255) from Little Liffner
If you're looking for something that works with any outfit but still stands out, Little Liffner's Open Tulip tote is a great addition to your collection. With its unique curved shape and dual top handle, your work bag can also double as a statement bag. Its largest size at 21.75 inches wide and 13.7 inches tall can fit even the most oversized laptops.
Neverfull ($2,030 to $2,710, roughly P111,950 to P149,451) from Louis Vuitton
As its name suggests, this classic Louis Vuitton catch-all never gets full. Everything you need and more can fit into this stylish tote. The GM and MM sizes in particular are best for carrying laptops. It comes in various designs, from classic monogram print colors to different seasonal color options. You're sure to find one that best suits your style.
Book Tote ($3,350 to $3,800, roughly P184,925 to P209,765.70) from Dior
Looking for something less traditional? Favored by many celebrities and influencers, the Dior Book Tote is an eye-catching piece every fashionista must have in their wardrobe. It's casual, yet elegant. You can use it for any occasion, during an office day, at the beach, or for a casual stroll around town. One look and everyone will know that you're that girl. There are so many ways to customize a Dior Book Tote. Choose from a wide array of materials, colors, prints, and sizes. The medium and large totes are best for carrying laptops.
Sac De Jour ($3,700 to $4,200 roughly P204,250 to P231,851) from Yves Saint Laurent
Love the look of a Birkin but can't afford it just yet? The Yves Saint Laurent Sac De Jour has similar elements to the chic luxury bag, such as the shape, lock, and straps that wrap around the bag. Many bag collectors love the Sac De Jour for its stylish, yet functional design and, of course, its semi-affordable price point. It's a perfect all-around everyday bag. Like the Birkin, it comes in several colorways, textures, and sizes. The medium size can fit a 13-inch laptop with ease, while the large size can fit a 15-inch laptop.
GG Matelassé Leather Medium Tote ($2,750, roughly P152,060) form Gucci
Gucci has a large collection of must-have totes, but one of our absolute favorites has got to be the GG Matelassé Leather Medium Tote. Matelassé leather has become a signature for Gucci, as seen on the trendy GG Marmont Matelassé bags. But the GG monogram embossed on this roomy tote makes it look particularly plush. The gold hardware also adds a subtle glam to it that we love. The leather tote comes in three shades, black, light brown, and beige. It has a width of 15 inches and a height of 11 inches which fits most laptops.
Deauville (€2,750, roughly P162,460) Chanel
If you'd describe your style as relaxed and easy-going, the Chanel Deauville would be a great match for you. The original Deauville was created with canvas fabric, but each season the bag gets reimagined with more materials being introduced such as denim, raffia, leather, and even mixed fibers being used.
The canvas bag is a classic and gives the bag an easygoing beach vibe. The denim is more durable and adds a bit of street edge to your look. And if you'd like to look a bit more polished, go for leather. The medium and large sizes are best for the office, but if you need a lot more space it even comes in XL.
Arco Medium Intrecciato Leather Tote Bag ($2,800 to $3,500, roughly P154,552 to P193,190) Bottega Veneta
This sturdy leather tote is crafted with Bottega Veneta's signature intrecciato weave. It comes in 15 different colors, a suede interior, and two top handles. At a whopping 18 inches wide it can fit not just your laptop but your entire work life into a single stylish bag.
Vertical Cabas Tote Bag ($1,553.38 roughly P85,726) from Celine
Love a bag that shows off the brand logo? Then this Celine Vertical Cabas Tote will be your new favorite arm candy. It's perfect for those days when you feel like going a bit more smart casual but still want to show people who's boss. At 14.6-by-15.7 inches it makes the ideal size for carrying a laptop.
Suede Leather TF E/W Tote ($1,550, roughly P85,526) from Tom Ford
If you're tired of the usual leather or canvas tote, why not go for a soft, fuzzy suede? Suede is technically a type of leather but it definitely shines on its own. This suede tote by Tom Ford has a sleek structured silhouette, contrasting leather straps, and gleaming gold hardware. It’s 18 inches wide and although it's made of suede, it's still a very stable tote.
