We’re firmly in the ‘‘you can never have too many handbags” camp, but whether you’re a one-bag-woman or you have a closet full of options, it’s pretty much a given that Matt & Nat’s stunning vegan-friendly designs include something perfect for you. Our obsession with the brand has changed our bag game for the better – it’s impossible not to feel chic and sophisticated when you wear their products – and we couldn’t be more on board with their mission of social responsibility. In honour of a new season (spring is finally here!!), we dropped by Boes to find five of the coolest Matt & Nat bags for you to consider adding to your collection.
Not-your-average backpack: If you’re a working woman, a backpack might not be your first choice of bag – but hear us out! This cinnamon-coloured Matt & Nat bag is a grown-up take on a backpack that’s stylish, sophisticated, and perfect for the working professional. We love how comfortable it is to wear, and the multiple zippered pockets come in handy for safely storing anything and everything you need for your daily commute, with a push-lock closure for extra security.
Minimalist clutch: There’s something so freeing about wearing a clutch. It forces you to carry only the bare essentials (your ID, credit card, and a great lipstick!) and doesn’t weigh you down. Perfect for an event or a night out, this clutch is light and compact, with a convenient slide-through handstrap that makes it easy to hold on to. You can’t go wrong with this great neutral colour that will literally go with everything.
Feminine and functional tote: We know an oversized tote bag can be intimidating to the uninitiated. Yes, this olive green beauty is on the larger side, but it’s also durable, structured, and roomy enough to hold just about anything you can throw at – or in – it. This particular design has a versatile shape that could double as an overnight bag or carry on.
Head-turning purse: This is not your average purse. Investing in a standout accessory like this bright and playful bag is a quick way to make your outfit pop, and solidify your trendsetter status. This two-toned yellow purse also lets you take one of Spring 2017’s runway colour trends for a spin in an easy, wearable way. The cool geometric shape works for day or night, and the interior is large enough to stow your essentials, without weighing you down.
Luxe satchel: If need to lug your laptop around, or you’re just a fan of the classic satchel shape, you’re in for a major love affair with this luxe version in a gorgeous dusty blue. This bag is ultra-functional, with a cross-body strap, but the thoughtful detailing and sophisticated materials make it grown-up and stylish. Stun on campus or around town by pairing it with a cute hat and your favourite scarf.
