Saint Laurent

large beach/shopping tote

A roomy market tote like this two-tone canvas version from Saint Laurent is de rigueur for French fashionistas, and for a reason! Not only does it handle your daily bouquet and baguette shopping, but it also serves as a ridiculously stylish beach tote, gym bag or even as a lightweight carryall for weekend-getaway packing. The flat base and lightly structured silhouette mean it resists toppling over when you set it down and the roomy over-the-shoulder handles make it easy to carry.
