Graduation season is here! It’s been a long road for a lot of students who have had to move online this past year. But that’s all over now! It’s time to celebrate this major milestone with joy.

The new graduate can take many paths through this ever-changing world. Whatever they choose to do next, they deserve something special. That’s why we put together a little gift guide with bags guaranteed to carry them wherever they’re headed.

For The Grads Who Just Got Hired

The Alto Camilla shoulder bag in saddle brown leather.

Graduating college with a job lined up is a huge deal!

We recommend a collection that has the right bag for the job: The Alto Collection. True, these Italian-made bags are an investment. On average, they carry a higher price tag than our other collections. But they’re worth it. These premium silhouettes are made by hand in Italy–and you can tell just by looking at them.

The totes, briefcases, and satchels in this collection have minimalist details and subtle styling. They’ll go with any type of professional attire. And most importantly, they’re designed to last. Five years from now these bags will look just as beautiful as the day they were unwrapped.

Browse totes, briefcases, satchels and more from the Alto Collection.

For The Spirited Grad

Our Collegiate Collection is perfect treat for the stylish grad who’s going to miss their Alma Mater!

The Collegiate Collection offers a range of handbags and wallets with college logos. It’s made using Pebble Grain leather, one of our most popular leathers known for its durability. It also offers styles made using lightweight nylon that’s super easy to maintain.

This collection has casual crossbody bags, satchels, and totes that are versatile enough for everyday wear. There are silhouettes as roomy as backpacks and as tiny as wallets.

Collegiate bags are a great way to feel connected to the college community. To see if we’re offering your school, check

For The Traveler

Two crossbody bags from the Wayfarer Collection.

Travel is a little different these days. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t new places to see. That’s why we also recommend lightweight pieces for anyone who will spend their summer exploring!

Our Wayfarer Collection is made from lightweight nylon. This effortless material is perfect for walking around a city. Try it in a bite-sized crossbody so your grad can keep their hands free.

We also offer a ton of duffle bags and backpacks in our Travel Shop! These unisex pieces are great for the bigger occasions, like road trips or flights where they can be used as a carry on.
