With a spacious interior all your work utensils will easily fit in either of these women’s leather workbags. The timeless styles will perfectly complement a classical business outfit with a ladies’ suit or a more casual look with jeans and a blouse.

The small leather shoulder bags, Catania and Lucca are great to carry from day into the night and complement elegant outfits and dresses very well.

In black, dark chocolate and tan the classic leather handbags can be worn with casual and smart outfits. These classical styles complement each outfit perfectly and look as stunning with a pair of jeans as well as with the little black dress. The perfect high-end bags for all types of women.



Choose a bag that fits your lifestyle

When you buy a ‘lifetime’ leather handbag it is important to make sure that the bag fits your lifestyle. If you are always on the go and use the leather handbag for work a lot, you should value function and a spacious interior. Or if are you the type of woman who doesn’t like carrying around too much, a small leather shoulder bag could be the ideal accessory for you. For some women a shoulder strap is essential others try to avoid turn-locks, buckles or flaps because they can be a little troublesome when you are reaching in and out of your handbag a lot. These are all small thing you should consider before purchasing your favourite bag.
