When searching for the best travel bag or accessory for my next getaway, one of the first sites I check is Leatherology because I know I’ll find plenty of totes, toiletry cases, cross-body bags, and luggage tags that are both chic and professional. But what’s even more special about the leather goods site is that it just launched a new collection with Diane von Furstenberg, and the new handbags’ colorways and patterns are going to make you want to upgrade your carry-on totes for fall (especially if you’re a fan of leather and personalized luggage like I am). 

Already a  favorite brand of Serena Williams, Lily Collins, Nina Dobrev, and more celebs, Leatherology’s latest collaboration with such a coveted designer is a testament to its high-quality products. The new DVF x Leatherology Snow Leopard assortment includes four different options of some of Leatherology's most popular handbag styles, including the brand’s best-selling tote bag, the Belmont Structured Tote. The Belmont is now being offered in a bold leopard pattern (its prettiest version yet, if you ask us). The bag continuously sells out just one day after it restocks, and the new version is the perfect chic tote to upgrade your look for fall and into winter. 

While Leatherology is known for its simple and minimalist luxury products, DVF’s new vibrant colors and prints are adding a high-fashion touch to the classic leather goods. Even though von Furstenberg first introduced leopard as her first animal print in 1974, this iconic print is making a comeback in a whole new way, which makes this collection feel even more special. 

“We feel that this collaboration holds great synergy, as Diane has spent years helping women feel modern and effortless, which is a core value of our brand and seen behind every Leatherology design,” Leatherology founder Rae Liu says. “Fans of both brands can expect this collection to feature an elevated take on some of Leatherology’s most beloved products.” 

What makes Leatherology bags so great for travel is that the brand’s double-sided, textured Italian leather is water- and scratch-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about ruining your bag if it starts to rain while you’re on the go. Plus, each Belmont tote in particular comes with a removable leather wristlet inside, so you’re essentially getting two bags for the price of one. 

Along with the new Belmont, you can shop an updated version of the Willow Envelope, which features the classic leopard print paired with pops of a bold red. While you can’t beat a signature tote, my personal favorite Leatherology product is the Willow because it can be carried three different ways — as a cross-body bag, a wallet, or a belt bag — which makes it an easy choice for a versatile, compact  travel bag that can be dressed up or down. And like almost all of Leatherology’s bags, you can personalize these upgraded styles with a custom monogram option for an additional $20. 

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or looking for the perfect holiday gift for a loved one, these bags are not only super helpful travel accessories, but also timeless leather additions to any wardrobe. You can shop the new products from the DVF x Leatherology collection, below, and be on the lookout for the Geo Print Collection launching later this month. You can even join the waitlist, here
