Minimalism reigns supreme for CFDA member, Tina Lutz, and the visual signature she’s masterminded for her luxury leather collection, Lutz Morris.

Extolling a less-is-more philosophy that extends from their unfussy structures to a restrained-yet-refined colour palette, artisanal bags promise a subtle sophistication that we’re hankering to get our hands on. Between the compact cross-body and the roomy shoulder tote, each style shares a beautifully boxy structure, which (spoiler alert) takes inspiration from vintage cigar tins. Gorgeous, absolutely, but our favourite details have to be the svelte gold-framed pockets that are concealed in the front of each and every piece – the work of a German company that’s been in operation since 1860.

Such unparalleled quality is echoed by an equally admirable ethos, with everything made entirely via independent businesses and a local sourcing of components, from the gold-plated hardware to the custom trims and handmade packaging. Better yet, for every bag sold, $10 is donated to Every Mother Counts, a non-profit organisation dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for women everywhere.

So, (and we’re only going to say this once,) if you were thinking of going some this Mother’s Day, that seems like a pretty fitting incentive to us...
