Another contender in the leather category worth checking out is the Proenza Schouler large shopping tote, a hippy alternative that's sure to appeal to the young and the young at heart. Priced at £530 on Net-A-Porter, what looks like a crinkled brown wrapping paper body with scalloped trim and like a paper bag is actually distressed leather, topped off with leather handles and a leather base, both in black. Roomy too, the 40 cm by 33 cm tote does have one downside. Actually, two downsides. The tote comes unlined on the inside, and does not come with any pockets, zipped or patch, which means you'll have to rely on individual pouches or risk everything rolling around inside.
