Helena de Natalio Belen Tote Bag | Chic Structured Leather Drawstring Handbag with Tassel Accent

Posted on: May 2

If you've always admired Helena de Natalio's day bags but dismissed their slouchy style, then the Belen Tote might be right up your alley. While this tote still has a gentle slouch, it's much more structured than most of Helena de Natalio's large handbags.

Despite its soft pleats and buttery Argentinian leather body, the Belen is one of those bags that happily stands to attention once you set it down. This makes sure everyone can admire the pretty braided handle and tasseled drawstring, no matter whether it's sitting on your shoulder or beside you.

Typically drawstring handbags are coolly casual, but the luxury leather makes this tote feel a bit more up-market. It couldn't really go black tie, but it'd be entirely appropriate for the boardroom or an elegant restaurant.

Thankfully Helena de Natalio has also made the Belen big enough to suit any occasion. The interior is generous without being ungainly, and well appointed with plenty of slip and zip pockets. The patterned lining doesn't have the same European sophistication we see on the rest of the bag, but the zip closure makes sure it's our little secret.

The Helena de Natalio Belen tote is available in classic cognac and caramel for $475.
