Say Hello to the Perfect Work Handbag for Women Who Do It All
Welcome to Top Shelf, the new series dedicated to the best and brightest fashion buys on the market. Watch this space to find all you’ll ever need to live a stylish life.
This one goes out to all the ladies out there who are working for the weekend and burning that midnight oil. Kicking butt and taking names involves more than just a killer suit and a don’t-mess attitude — you’re gonna need the right handbag to match. So if you’re channeling your inner Working Girl 24/7, then listen up, because we’ve found the perfect accessory to empower your busy life, taking you from your commute to the corner office onto after-hours cocktails and beyond.
The Senreve Doctor Bag ($895) may be a splurge, but we’re making the case as to why it’s worth every penny. Designed for multifaceted women who require luxe-level accessories with serious performance capabilities, this style is a combination of every It-bag all in one. The smooth pebbled leather exterior is supple, yet scratch resistant and crafted to withstand heavy-duty work. Offered in just about every shade that will complement your boss lady wardrobe, the Doctor Bag can be worn three ways — crossbody (thanks to the removable long strap), on your arm, or over your shoulder.
If you’re noticing a theme of versatility, there’s a reason for that. Senreve founder Coral Chung was inspired by women who do it all and are on the hunt for the highest quality products to help them achieve balance beyond the boardroom. The name Senreve is derived from the French words for “sense” and “dream” and illustrates the brand’s focus on dichotomies: tradition and innovation, everyday and fantasy, design and versatility. The devil is in the details with this multifunctional piece that doesn’t compromise craftsmanship for style.
The interior of each bag is lined with stain-resistant micro suede and divided into seven compartments that work for your iPad, laptop, passport, and beauty essentials. A roomy central section is the just the right size to accommodate last-minute weekend plans without appearing bulky or oversized. But if you’re looking for thoughtful details in your next purchase, look no further than the longer-than-average zipper. Designed for extra security as you travel and optimal convenience for daily use, the two-way full zipper closure sidesteps the dreaded black hole effect of most large options, allowing you to open the bag wider so you can grab what you need on the go. Lastly, each Doctor features a flap closure with collar stud belt to ensure that your goods stay safe while you take on the world.
