The Bleecker tote is our hero bag design for SS17. It’s expertly handcrafted using premium Italian leather that has been sourced and chosen specifically for its flawless surface finish and unrivalled durability. The larger version is the ultimate everyday tote, designed to reflect the Reiss aesthetic within every detailed aspect. Traditional shackles and locking systems inspired the bag’s hardware and the design team worked alongside Italian manufacturers in order to create something completely authentic and suited to the Bleecker. The removable padlock is a decorative, functional addition and it comes complete with a delicate key hidden on the inside of the tote. Large enough to house a laptop should your travel or everyday require it but sleek enough that you won’t compromise on style, the Bleecker is ideally suited to both work and the weekend. It has two structured top handles, an adjustable shoulder strap and it comes complete with a removable internal pouch that promises to make the day to evening transition all the more effortless. Hand-painted edges complete the look.
The Bleecker Mini is our hero SS17 tote in a more compact, pared-back design. An elegant way to channel the season’s mini bag trend, it has been crafted with as much care and detail as its larger counterpart but features a single top handle and more minimalistic hardware detailing. Exhibiting premium-quality details like the hand-painted edges and Italian leather, this statement piece is premium enough to work for evening events as well as by day so it makes the perfect wear-anywhere companion. Attach or remove the optional shoulder strap to suit your look.
HOW TO STYLE IT
"Whether you’re getting ready for a day at the office, heading out for lunch at the weekend or packing for the airport, the Bleecker will house exactly what you need but maintain a polished look. It’s the perfect all-rounder."
