A bag lover tired of searching for the perfect handbag, designer Monica Botkier took matters into her own hands and designed a bag that checked all her boxes. The result was the functional, fashionable carry-all satchel that became the Trigger Bag.

With its slouchy leather body, exposed zippers and tasseled accents, the bag could be found tucked under the arm of women everywhere from LA to New York.

15 years later, the bag that started it all is still popular enough that it hasn’t been retired, but the Botkier line has expanded and evolved since then while keeping their downtown-girl DNA. New best-sellers now include bags like the Soho color blocked leather tote, seen here.

Stitched from blue, white and black pebbled leather, its clean lines and trapezoidal shape make this a perfect workweek companion, with one pouch and zip pocket apiece to keep things organized. Rolled handles and an optional adjustable shoulder strap supply options for wear, while exposed zipper trim harks back to the signature Botkier look.

Details like that also make it an easy transition to the weekend – a design punctuation that errs firmly on the side of cool, just what you’d expect from a line created to fill a lack of exactly that.
