Locally Designed Work Bags for Your Spring Look

Ladies, it’s time to switch up your work look for spring! Adding a statement bag to your outfit can do wonders without the need to overhaul your wardrobe. No matter what style you’re going for, these locally designed bags will give your everyday look an instant lift.

For the Minimalist

Those favouring low-key, minimalist design will like this octagon purse by Enjoy, a Hong Kong brand created by entrepreneur Arthur Law for working women of all ages. It steps away from the typical boxy shape while retaining a clean, professional look – perfect for those looking for a slightly different take on the traditional office bag. Made out of Italian cowhide leather, it’s roomy enough to carry all your daily essentials. Choose from four basic shades, or get it in a smaller version for additional colour options to match your evolving style.

For the Art Lover

Enjoy art? Have a taste for novelty? Then you’ll like the new bucket bag by local indie brand ESEMBLĒ, which has been gaining popularity for its contemporary approach to vintage design. Designer Tink, a graduate from the renowned Parsons School of Design, took inspiration from American artist Richard Serra’s sheet metal sculptures to create this unusual structural bag. With its playful statement geometric shapes, this creamy yellow bag not only adds a pop of colour to your spring outfit, but is also an artwork in its own right.

For the Multitasker

If you’re after a bag that does it all and looks elegant, this versatile backpack by Rabeanco won’t disappoint. Originally founded in Hong Kong in 1992, the leather goods brand now has an international following for its form and function balancing creations. This convertible bag, for instance, can be worn as a backpack, a tote bag or a bucket bag, thanks to its innovative use of drawstring shoulder straps. It’s incredibly light weight as it’s made of smooth cow leather, and the fringe gives it a classy, chic look that will carry you from office to happy hour.

For the Fashionista

For a bold fashion statement, Matter Matters vibrant bags are sure to make you stand out from the crowd. The brainchild of designer Flora Leung, the local brand’s collection has frequented the social media channels of artists and fashion bloggers. Inspired by post-modernist aesthetics, this eccentric light blue carryall has an unconventional right-angled shape that leaves plenty of interior space. It also features a contrasting shoulder strap and metal chain in neon orange and blue to help you make a sharp impression.

For the Fitness Junkie

Tired of the bulky duffel bag? Try one of the gym tote bags by activewear brand Miss Runner, which is known to combine style and athletic performance in its design. The After Tsunami Tote Bag in particular, comes in a beautiful print created by Hong Kong photographer Noel Jones, with a slim, stylish design that makes it look smart enough to bring into the office. This waterproof bag has enough room to store your gym outfit and trainers, with a zipped inner pocket that’s perfect for smaller valuables such as your phone and cards.
