I always think of Clare V. as being known for her clutches, but there’s really been a groundswell of these Simple Totes lately. They all have a wonderful French look, and a lot of them are suede or haircalf, with some canvas. If you’re looking to carry files to and from the office, these bags give you a modern, clean, and minimalist way to do it. The prices for the totes range from $325 to $525 at Shopbop; the one pictured is $499. Clare V. Suede Simple Tote
