There are bags out there that can bring you from a holiday in the Maldives to meeting a client in the Central Business District of Hong Kong. But let’s face it; there is no one bag that can carry you through every different situation. And of course, our lives don’t necessarily revolve around clearly defined lifestyles anymore.

Braun Büffel’s fall/winter 2015 collection on the other hand, has an extensive range of bags and accessories that makes for finding that perfect bag for different moments in our lives, a bit easier. We break down some of the stylish pieces that you wouldn’t want to leave home without.

Poche-32, Messenger bag, $629

No matter if you’re breathing in the Empire State for work or for play, a messenger bag is quintessentially New Yorker that you won’t look out of place. And there’s a reason to that too – your hands are constantly free for rushing about the city with coffee and phone GPS in hand. And with an easy access to your belongings (just flip up the flap with magnetic closure), you’ll be able to take on the bustling city that never sleeps.

One tip to keep in mind: Keep the shoulder strap short so that the bag rests nicely slightly below your shoulder blades when slung across because you wouldn’t want the bag to get in your way too much.

Voyage-01, Duffel, $1,799

Europe is one continent where one rarely spends in just one city. With cheap domestic flights and fast train connections, it’s difficult to avoid jumping from one country to another. This roomy weekender from Braun Büffel’s Made in Florence collection, helps to keep all your essentials in style and is pretty much all you need for short stays in each city; to complement your check-in baggage of course.

And when you’re travelling within a continent that has so much heritage in fashion and craftsmanship, carrying a bag that’s handcrafted in Florence, Italy makes all the difference. Style, quality and practicality – what’s not to love?
