Canvas Convert

 

I bucked the duffel trend of recent seasons, but this one in canvas would get me to go there. Besides my LL Bean boat totes, I have only one canvas bag, a YSL from the Tom Ford era. It’s a shoulder bag and still gorgeous. This Givenchy would certainly stand the test of time as well.

  • What do you use as a carry on tote when you travel by air? I’m looking for something to slip my purse in as well as holding magazines, shawl, glasses, etc. I need help!

  • I really like this too. What I don’t get is the price, esp. when compared to some of the leather versions?

  • Debbie, I carry an Anya Hindmarch tote when I travel.

  • Longchamp totes are also wonderful, and very reasonably priced. Le Pliage holds a bag, magazine, kindle and more.

  • What a fabulous bag this is! When traveling with a very nice handbag, I tuck it inside it’s felt drawstring pouch before placing it in the bin and sending it through the x-ray at security. Car travel is so much more civilized– : )

  • I was just lamenting the weight of some leather bags these days, so lighter weight canvas would be a welcome change!

  • What a great bag! I always switch to canvas or straw for the Summer. Leather accents are a must.
