Uncomplicated and discreet luxury are at the core of Valextra — making it the anti-thesis to all things plastered with logos. Keeping in line with its ethos, the brand is releasing a series of über luxe, ultra elegant bags for pre-fall 2015. Updating its classics and introducing new shapes, these are the three key styles from the collection that will take you from boardroom to bar-room effortlessly.
1. The Isis backpack
One of the hottest shapes of the season, the backpack is an evergreen staple that conveys youthful energy without compromising taste. Valextra's interpretation — the Isis — comes with the range's signature elegant clasp lock, which coupled with the clean lines and gorgeous calfskin makes it one for the books.
2. The Leggera Tote
A pared-back classic that is as functional as it is chic, the new Leggera Tote comes in matte alligator or smooth calf leather this season. It is capacious to store the day's essentials, yet polished enough for a night out on the town, but if you prefer to leave the heavy lifting for work, the tote also comes with two detachable pouches that can be used as an evening clutch.
3. The New Madison
Expanding its briefcase line, Valextra introduces the New Madison as a refined take on the power woman's essential. Its clean, minimalist exterior belies an extremely organised interior, which features compartments for a laptop, iPad, and documents.
