Caily, our fabulous social media and PR expert, loves Italian handbags.
That's why she carries her roomy Alto bag
wherever she goes, especially to and from work. The Via Joelle Tote
, one of our popular tote bags for women
, is designed and crafted by hand in Italy’s Tuscan region, just outside of Florence. The tote features a roomy interior, leather straps, and jewelry-grade hardware. Like most of the minimalist silhouettes from the Alto Collection
, the Via Joelle is impossibly sleek. It’s designed for those who invest in high-quality handbags that are durable enough for their everyday life.
We've seen Caily pull out a few expected items from her tote. A comb. Lip gloss. A magazine. But on an outdoor lunch break, we saw her reach into her purse for something with a lot more...flavor. We chatted with her to find out what else she was carrying, and what she loves the most about her Italian-made tote.
Q+A With Our Social Media Expert
Which bag are you carrying?
I am carrying the Alto Via Joelle
Why do you love it?
I'm mostly working from home these days, but on occasion I need to go into the studio for photoshoots and PR planning. The Joelle fits everything I need to bring to and from work. There’s even a center pocket that keeps everything super organized so I'm not fussing around.
Do you have any styling advice?
My favorite part about this bag is that it goes with anything! I have yet to put on an outfit that it didn’t look perfect with. I love that it looks effortless with everything and I don’t need to put too much thought into styling.
What’s one thing you always have in your bag?
A disposable camera. I love bringing it along on little excursions with friends or my boyfriend to capture little moments. It feels a little more special than taking pictures with my phone.
Most practical item in your bag right now:
Hand sanitizer. I’m using it constantly.
Most surprising item in your bag right now:
My little bottle of Tajin! I put it on everything, especially pineapple. You have to try it if you haven't yet.
The Via Joelle
is available in two rich brown suede leathers: Saddle and Chestnut.
