September marks the end of the summer holidays and work life resuming.
For many people, this will also mean going back into the office for the first time in months, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Even if you are not physically returning to the office just yet, there’s no reason why you can’t still treat yourself to a new work bag - ready for when you do.
Aspinal London has a whole range of handcrafted luxury leather bags which are perfect for office attire or just for a more dressed-up everyday look.
One of the brand’s best-loved bags is the London Tote, which comes in 11 different colours. The inner compartment is big enough to fit a slimline 15-inch laptop or an iPad Pro 12.9 - so is perfect for storing office essentials. It also features a central zipped section and a valuables compartment, as well as two mobile-sized pockets - ideal for work and personal smartphones.
The Lottie Large, on the other hand, is another popular choice and is more of a lightweight option. Its compact letterbox style makes it great for storing everyday items like a purse, keys and phone. What's more, theleather plaited metal chain also means it can be worn as a shoulder bag or across the body. There's also the option to get it personalised with two initials.
The Mayfair bag is another top seller and falls somewhere in the middle of the other two - size-wise. This Aspinal bag can fit a small tablet and features two inner compartments separated by a central zipped pocket for extra storage. It also has the option for cross-body styling, if you want to keep your arms and hands free.
Each Aspinal London bag comes in a variety of colours - but marmalade, black croc and grey are fan favourites.
