While I love the idea of a good slouchy tote as much as the next person, sometimes you just need your bag to have a little backbone, you know? To be honest, I’m a little over the days of throwing all of my necessaries into a sloppy jalopy tote bag and praying that my laptop and other personal affects are still in one piece after sloshing around all day. For high-performance days when you’re commuting, traveling, racing between meetings, or juggling baby paraphernalia, you need a bag that has structure, offering your belongings both organization and protection. The Senreve Maestra offers this in spades.
It’s easier to stay organized when your bag does the heavy lifting for you, and the Maestra has pockets galore to help you do just that. There are plenty of interior pockets (EIGHT, to be exact, including a padded laptop sleeve) plus an exterior pocket for easy access to necessities like your phone, boarding pass, passport, etc. In fact, the pockets are so plentiful and well-designed that since having a baby, the Senreve Maestra has actually also become my favorite “diaper bag.” Which brings me to my next point…
There is nothing a Maestra cannot do. Like, if you asked her nicely, I’m pretty sure she’d make you breakfast. This bag can operate as a super polished work bag, a convenient carry-on tote, and even a fully-functional diaper bag for crying out loud. It is a veritable masterclass in multitasking. Instead of buying multiple bags for multiple purposes, you can just buy one Maestra and call it a very stylish day. My condolences to the remaining bags in your closet who may never see the light of day again.
Oh, right, the quality. This is not a bag you carry for one season and then donate. Senreve offers the bag in several colors and leather types, but regardless of your choice (Mimosa, Pebbled, Dolce, Dragon, etc.), all the leathers used in the creation of this bag are of the highest quality, coated, and extremely sturdy. You will never have to deal with unfortunate stretching or a bag that can’t stand up to… you know, being used without instantly looking worn out. This bag can be used forever while retaining its stunning shape and luxe look.
Four Ways To Wear It
This bag would be worth the investment if you could only wear it one way, but the Maestra can be worn four ways. Five actually, if you count, “Rich, hold this.” It can be worn as a classic satchel, a tote, a cross body, or as a backpack, my personal favorite option for when I need both my hands free to tend to HRH Colette’s needs and whims.
I know, this one’s a wildcard, right? I never thought I’d care this much about bag feet but here we are. The Senreve Maestra has metal feet that help to both protect the base, and also keep the bag upright. Feet seem like a small thing (lol, literally), but how many times have you wrestled with how to put down your tote bag without it falling over and having everything spill out? When your bag contains really valuable items like your laptop, tablet, etc., the feet keep those things in place and protected. It’s indicative of how much thought went into the bag’s design overall—no detail was left unaddressed.
Oh right, it’s also STUNNING. This bag is beautiful. So beautiful. Sometimes I just stare into it like a campfire. Not only is the Maestra completely polished and classic, but it’s also just a gorgeous piece of sartorial excellence. All of the reasons I invested in a Senreve Maestra mentioned above wouldn’t work if I didn’t also love the way this bag looks. Rest-assured, whether you’re in a boardroom, a playground or a jet bridge, you’ll look the part.
Thanks to Senreve for partnering on this post.
