The Designer Diaper Bag You’ll Want to Carry Even If You Don’t Have a Baby

When Nasiba Adilova and Miroslava Duma launched The Tot two years ago, they did so with the intent to solve issues and address concerns that affect mothers everywhere through smart editorial and a curated inventory of tried-and-tested products. One of those issues? The absence of a chic diaper bag on the market. They took matters into their hands and teamed up with designer (and fashion industry darling) Mary Katrantzou to launch what they consider the dream diaper bag. It boasts all the elements of a luxury designer tote, but with the added benefit of being incredibly versatile, with practical compartments designed to hold everything, from diapers to binkies.

“When I was pregnant, there were many beautiful choices for a diaper bag, but none of them would fit everything I needed,” Adilova explains. “I wanted a simple bag, like Louis Vuitton or Goyard; basically, a fashionable tote for fashionable moms that didn’t look like a diaper bag.”

The bag underwent three redesigns until it met their criteria—a wider, roomier shape (to hold a lot more stuff), an additional longer strap (that you can hang on every kind of stroller), a more durable, water-resistant leather (the inside lining is water-resistant as well), a bigger zipper (to help you zip, even if the bag is stuffed to the brim), and a larger waterproof changing pad (that you can unclip from inside the bag). As for the print, Adilova and Duma went through Katrantzou’s design archives and selected two styles: a Mongolian stamp from her collection, where she replaced the original text with “The Tot,” and a white horse (that they call a unicorn in-house).

With a $1,700 price tag, the diaper bag isn’t cheap. But Adilova insists that it’s not expensive, either. In fact, she says Katrantzou had wanted to mark it up even higher. And compared with other high-end diaper bags (made out of nylon, FYI), which start at $2,000, this one is considered to be on the affordable end of the designer bag spectrum. “Yes, you can find very cheap diaper bags, but they don’t look like fashion bags. They’re not very well made, you’ll use it only for a couple of years, and you’ll probably throw it away,” she says. “The great thing about this one is that it makes a really great travel bag after. This one will last you forever.”

And only a week after its launch, they’ve already been receiving positive feedback. “The result is fantastic,” Adilova says. “People have bought it, written to us to say there’s nothing else like it on the market. They love it.”

Only 180 of the limited-edition Mary Katrantzou diaper bags were made, so head to thetot.com to grab one for yourself—even if you don’t have a child.

13 Bags That Will Fit All Your Junk

As New York Magazine so brilliantly pointed out, German chancellor Angela Merkel loves shuffling through an oversize, stuffed tote. Sometimes it’s leather, sometimes nylon. Sometimes the bag has a top handle! Other times, it’s a shoulder bag. But always, and I mean always, Merkel is constantly digging, searching, and foraging for … well, who knows.

We can relate. Everyone has that one bag that’s so big it could double as a piece of carry-on luggage. You hold your laptop, your phone, your wallet, your breast pump, your lunch, and a makeup kit all in one giant abyss of a thing. Need your mascara? TOO BAD! It’s all the way at the bottom. Regardless, we love this must-have elephant of an accessory.

Tibi Launches a Line of Handbags, and They’re All Gorg 

Beloved fashion brand Tibi is expanding into handbags, and we couldn’t be more excited about it.

Leading up their 20th anniversary, the brand’s creative director Amy Smilovic partnered up with accessories mastermind Myriam Schaefer (the famed designer behind Lariat bag for Balenciaga as well as her own namesake line of bags) to create The Tibi Chapeau Bags by Myriam Schaefer, a handbag line designed for the discerning woman who appreciates quality and refinement but always with functionality, a shared vision of Schaefer and Smilovic.

The bags come in three delectable styles: The Garcon, a cross-body; the Mignon, a satchel; and our personal fave, the Papa, a roomy tote that’s big enough to fit all the random stuff that we somehow accumulate throughout the day. Choose from black, cognac, or red, some accented with stripes of yellow and blue, others with unique denim detailing, and all of them priced from $850 to $1250.

The line will be available at tibi.com, the Tibi flagship boutique in New York City, and select retailers beginning at the end of November.

You’ll Never Guess the One Gift Chrissy Teigen Gives John Legend Every Christmas

John Legend is the ultimate gift giver. I mean, it’s not even Christmas yet and he’s already immortalized his wife and daughter in the music video for his latest hit, “Love Me Now.”

Legend sets the bar pretty high. Finding the perfect gift for your S.O. is hard enough as is, but being married to the most romantic man alive presents an added challenge. We can’t imagine the anxiety Chrissy Teigen feels when it’s time to pick a gift for Valentine’s Day—she’d better start planning now.

V-day aside, when Christmas comes around, Teigen has a plan. The model admitted to CNN that she gives her husband the same gift every year: “I get him a suede man bag every year that he looks forward to because he uses it every single day for that year.” Brilliant. “There’s nothing he looks forward to more than that bag.”
