Can you imagine a life without your trustee bag? Where oh where would you stuff all your essentials while you’re roaming around the world, conquering it? And by essentials, we mean you makeup, hairbrush, face wipes, mobile phone and charger, perfume, keys…the list goes on. Bags of all sizes, shapes, colours and types are in themselves essential for our existence, no? So today, the #HauteSquad picks their fave bags to tote around (see what we did there?) — for any occasion and any time of the day.



Rachana Reddy Cat Ears Box Clutch

“I’m a self-confessed crazy cat lady. I have 3 beautiful girls who own my life, so needless to say, I’m a magpie around anything even remotely catty and cute. That’s why this minimalist cat-ears box clutch by designer Rachana Reddy has my heart. The sleek teak wood exterior features black and gold paint, and adorable little cat ears on the top. What’s not to love?”
— Zahra Khan, Editor-In-Chief

Dolce & Gabbana Sequinned Clutch

“I love all things shiny. I love orange. I love small things. And this bag is all of that and more. It’s small enough to carry when I’m heading for a girls’ night out, and yet with fit all my *essentials* — makeup, keys, cards, money, the works. Also, this bag is the perfect add-on whether I’m wearing a saree or an LBD — win-win! Yes, it’s a tad expensive, but hey, it’s a Dolce & Gabbana; it’s an investment.”
— Baishali Chatterjee, Managing Editor

Carpenter Bag III

“Anything handcrafted touches a chord with me. This particular Nappa Dori blue leather sling with wooden sides is simple, classy, and totally my style. It’s a really cool AM to PM bag, and has become one of my favourite accessories from my closet.”
— Aindrila Mitra, Managing Editor

SHOP NOW: Carpenter Bag III (Rs 9,000 approx)



Adidas Printed Backpack

“You’re already aware about my love for all things bag. Whether it’s a tote, bucket, or a cool backpack — if it can fit in my essentials, then I gotta get my hands on it. And since I’m planning a solo trip to a far off island somewhere around South-East Asia, a backpack definitely tops my wishlist! Having said that, this uber cool Adidas Backpack is what dreams are made of. From the colour to the fabric, I’m totally crushing on this beauty.”
— Snehal Fernandes, Head of Video Content

Charles & Keith Tassel Clutch

“I absolutely adore Charles & Keith’s modern, chic aesthetic and it’s my go-to store when i’m in the mood to splurge on myself. The tassle and chain detail on this cute little clutch will totally put me in the mood to celebrate and kinda reminds me a little of this YSL bag that everyone is obsessed with. It’s tiny enough to be carried as a tote, but I’ll probably carry it as a crossbody sling!”
— Farozan Dossani, Social Media Manager

SHOP NOW: Charles & Keith Tassel Clutch (Rs 6,499)



Zara Split Suede Patch City Bag

“One thing I don’t mind spending my whole salary on is a bag. And since I’m always on the go, so I need a bag large enough to hold all my necessities, yet something that can make heads turn. This Zara bag fitted that description perfectly! Also, the patchwork is a lovely bonus. Don’t you think?”
— Japleen Kaur, Lifestyle Writer

SHOP NOW: Zara Split Suede Patch City Bag (Rs 4,990)



New Look Saddle Bag

“So I am willingly confessing that I am a hoarder when it comes to saddle bags! Handbags, clutches, and duffles don’t quite tickle my fancy as much as the saddles do. What’s not to love about this bag? It’s compact, which means I can carry my necessities without lugging around the bulk. And the colour-block element just adds that extra day to night factor to it! Great things do come in small packages.”
— Tatiana Dias, Fashion & Beauty Writer

SHOP NOW: New Look Saddle Bag (Rs 1,895)



Zara Leather Tasselled Bucket Bag

“I am a hoarder when it comes to bags and lately, I have been obsessing over leather — be it shoes, belts, or bags. This bag from Zara has got me lovestruck — tan and tassles, how can I not fall in love? It screams sassy and sophistication all at once!”
— Meghana Choraria, Social Media Executive

SHOP NOW: Zara Leather Tasselled Bucket Bag (Rs 3,990)



PropShop24 Box Sling Bag

“Sling bags are my go-to. And despite having a huge collection, I can’t help but hit the ‘buy’ button if I stumble upon another cute bag. This bag has recently taken my heart for its chic box design and the awesome rich black colour. Can you name any ensemble this one won’t go with? I didn’t think so!”
— Mansi Chouksey, Graphic Designer

Caprese Satchel

“I love this Caprese Greta Red Satchel Bag because of the incredibly textured skin. It is super lightweight and comfortable. This bag has enough space for my all essentials. I personally love that its red and I think this totally suits me.”
— Pranita Vardam, Graphic Designer

StalkBuyLove Arben Backpack

“Bags are the one thing I love to buy from anywhere and everywhere. And leather backpacks and totes top my lust list. As for colours, I always prefer darker colors to brighter ones. This backpack meets all the criteria! Shopping for bags is definitely one of my favourite parts of the whole experience.”
— Divya Wable, Junior Graphic Designer
