The Brand Behind Meghan Markle’s Go-to Tote Just Released Its Best Travel Bag Yet
Everlane is known for creating everyday pieces (at accessible price points) that deliver on both form and function. Think: stylish dresses in wrinkle-resistant fabrics and sleek heels that are made to be worn all day without wrecking your feet. And lately, the brand has especially been hitting it out of the park with its leather goods.
The recently launched Italian-leather Day Glove flat ($115; everlane.com) is a top-seller with Travel + Leisure readers. And Meghan Markle is a fan of the brand’s Day Market Tote ($175; everlane.com) — the one she famously wore on her first official outing with Prince Harry.
Today, Everlane debuted its newest silhouette: the Form Bag ($235; everlane.com), which is handcrafted in Italy and comes in black, (Duchess-approved) cognac, and a stunning hunter green.
The bag has a surprisingly spacious central compartment for how slim the design looks — you’ll be able to fit a 13-inch laptop horizontally. There’s a slip pocket inside for easy access to your phone or other oft-grabbed essentials. And the coolest part: it's got a magnetic top closure, so there are no zippers or flaps to fumble with when one hand is occupied by a phone call, coffee, umbrella, et al.
It's also a generally comfortable bag to carry. The strap is wide and made of a soft, seatbelt-like material, so it doesn’t dig into your shoulder when you’ve got it packed to the brim (hi, airplane snacks). It’s adjustable, too, allowing you to wear the bag as a hip-height cross-body or to shorten it into a shoulder bag.
If you’ve got your eye on a Form Bag, we recommend moving quickly. Everlane’s launches don’t tend to stay in stock for long, especially one this good.
