Do You Know the Difference Between a Designer Clutch Bag, a Designer Tote, Satchel, or Luxury Shoulder Bag?

A handbag is more than just a catch-all purse or portable collection of everything you need during your day. Besides being useful or not, a handbag is a versatile accessory you can use to add attractive variety to your outfit.

Knowing about all the different types of handbags you can invest in is an important step in building an impressive designer bag collection.

Shoulder Bag 

A shoulder bag is an essential bag, a must-have. Most shoulder bags have zippered pockets and compartments that keep things sorted and safe. It is carried on the shoulder with things or shorter straps than what is found on a tote bag. There are several different sizes, and a shoulder bag can be comfortably carried under your arm.

Tom Ford Shoulder Bags

Thomas Ford was born in 1961 and is an American fashion designer and filmmaker. He launched his luxury brand line in 2005. Before the line was launched, he was the creative director at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. Most bags are made in Italy from supple leather.

Tote Bag 

A tote bag is versatile and reliable. The bag has ample storage space and is comfortable to carry. They are large, have two parallel handles on either side, and are a great investment in versatility.

Tote bags are perfect for any occasion, and because of the size, you have to carry more than a few things, so shopping, heading out for a business meeting or class, or just running to meet friends at the park are perfect.

Jimmy Choo Tote Bag

The Jimmy Choo company was founded in 1996, and Sandra Choi is the creative director. Sophisticated clients love the sexy cut, fashionable design, and exceptional craftsmanship associated with the brand. As a teenager, Sandra Choi was born in the UK and located in London. At Jimmy Choo’s side, she gained from his knowledge and detail to craftsmanship.

Jimmy Choo has several luxury tote bags available with a Logo Canvas Tote in Natural Black, selling for US$425.00 at Nordstrom.

Satchel Bag 

A satchel is soft, large, and can be used for casual occasions. It is like a soft-sided briefcase or a loose sack with a pair of straps. You can carry satchel bags with a long strap diagonally across the body. Some medium-sized bags have two shorter handles.

The bags are roomy, typically have a flat bottom, and can be used for laptops, books, and reading materials.

Typically made with soft materials, these bags are large with a slouched body. They will have a long strap to be worn over the shoulder. The softer material used in the hobo bag tends to slump if set down. It is normally designed to have one spacious compartment and a single zipper.

Clutch bags are an evening accessory that complements evening attire beautifully. It is elegant, fashionable, and seen at dinner parties, weddings, and official events.

The word clutch means to grip or grasp, and the beauty of the bag is it is handheld. The clutch bag dates bag to money bags ordinarily used for storing money and small items like gold jewelry, crystal pillboxes, or needles.

There is a clutch that is displayed in a London museum that is over 700 years old.


Clutches historically were a sign of wealth and social class. In the 19th century, clutches took on their modern look, including a wrist strap and a longer look. During the 1920s, clutch bags were made from snake or crocodile leather and were only purchased by the elite. Some even had diamond and pearl embellishments.

Following WWII, in 1959, Mamie Eisenhower personally owned a gold beaded clutch bag. It was given to her by Indira Gandhi when the Eisenhowers went to India. It was an exquisite clutch bag as an evening purse.

Gandhi even added a note when he gave her the gift. It was made with gold and silver thread and had its own custom box.

After WWII, Christian Dior moved the clutch from a bag for the elite to a bag for everyone and every wardrobe. In today’s market, clutch bags are fun, not always flat and rectangular in shape, and more diverse.

The clutch bag is an accessory to any business attire or for going out to do errands. A clutch is appropriate for any style of cloth, even sports attire. The embellishments can be diamonds and pearls or metal and appliques.

A clutch bag will jazz up jumpsuits, cocktail dresses, or a top and pair of jeans.

The fun thing with clutch bags is you can create a wardrobe of bags to suit your every mood. By carrying the right clutch bag, you can add shimmer, shine, a disco vibe, or silver sparkle to any outfit.
