5,000+ People Signed Up to Shop This Insanely Chic Work Tote—And It's Finally Back in Stock
Plus, seven more of Dagne Dover's best-selling bags that will totally change your life and keep you super organized.
We’ve all experienced shopping for the perfect bag—whether you need a new handbag for work or the just-the-right-size duffle for a weekend getaway—and the task isn’t easy. You need something that can hold and juggle not only all of your tech gadgets but the essentials too. Ultimately, you need a bag that’s not only stylish but essentially a tool for keeping you super organized during life’s everyday moments.
That’s when the three creators of Dagne Dover saw the opportunity to launch something genius: a brand of bags that are literally “designed for a life in motion,” as the company’s motto states. Since its launch in 2013, female co-founders Deepa Gandhi, Jessy Dover, and Melissa Shin Mash, have turned a small brand into more than just products but a lifestyle, too.
In late 2018, the Dagne Dover team opened its first pop-up store in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City complete with a station filled with laptops, iPads, tennis shoes, water bottles, and more. The reason? So you could actually fill a bag with stuff that you carry all the time to test out your favorites—talk about brilliant! Also in 2018, more than 5,000 people signed up on a waitlist for Dagne Dover’s large Allyn Tote, which is now finally back in stock for you to shop ASAP.
If you’re a New Yorker, you might have seen fellow commuters carrying the Classic Tote or have spotted the Dagne Dover ads lining the subway cars, but for everyone else, get ready to start seeing the brand everywhere. Gandhi, Dover, and Shin Mash know their audience and will continue adapting to the needs of this can’t-stop-won’t-stop generation. For example, starting today you can even shop a Dagne Dover exclusive neoprene laptop sleeve at Apple.com and select Apple stores, the very first laptop-specific accessory from the brand!
While I am personally a big fan of the brand, the stats don’t lie, and Dagne Dover is constantly selling out of its most popular bags, which we conveniently curated for you below. See for yourself why everyone loves this minimalist-inspired bag brand with styles that each come in three different sizes and are filled with pockets galore. What more could a girl ask for in a bag?
1 Classic Tote
Carry your everyday essentials in this super smart tote. Not only will it hold up to a 13-inch laptop, the straps fold down, it’s lined with several interior pockets, and it includes a neoprene water bottle holder and a leather key leash that are both detachable.

2 Medium Dakota Backpack
If you’re not a “backpack person,” that will soon change. If you hate carrying bags on your shoulder, this backpack is perfect for your daily commute or as a gym bag. While it comes in three sizes, the medium is the most popular because it’s just the right size to fit both shoes and a small laptop. Plus, Dagne Dover uses neoprene fabric for certain bags like the backpack because it’s super durable, easily washable, and dries quickly.

3 Large Allyn Tote
The bag with a 5,000-person waitlist is back! We can see why so many people loved the large Allyn—it’s comes in 12 different colorways and is just the right size for a work bag with plenty of pockets and a magnetic closure. And we can’t forget about that pebbled leather that makes it look oh-so chic.

4 Medium Landon Carryall
Behold, we’ve found the best bag for a short weekend trip. You can compare all four sizes of the Landon Carryall here, but we can see why the medium is the most popular. It’s the answer to the office-to-gym struggle, and it makes a great overnight bag that doesn't get too heavy to carry on your shoulder for a short plane or train ride. Bonus points for the cross-body strap—it’s a lifesaver.

5 Legend Tote
A tad larger than the Classic Tote, the Legend Tote comes in eight different colors and can hold a 15-inch laptop within the interior laptop compartment. Inside the tote, you’ll also find all the necessary pockets, including pen loops, a phone pocket, a notebook sleeve, and a bottle holder.
To buy: $265; dagnedover.com.
6 Ace Fanny Pack
Yes, fanny packs are a thing again, and we’re loving Dagne Dover’s modern take on the bag that was once a serious fad. The fanny pack might be small, but it’s still mighty! And just like any of the brand’s other bags, it’s roomy and even includes an interior and exterior card pocket as well as an interior key ring.
To buy: $85; dagnedover.com.
7 Large Hunter Toiletry Bag
Just when you didn’t think the perfect toiletry bag existed, think again. Available in three different sizes, the large is the most-loved because of its room for both full-sized and travel-sized products—it’s even big enough to fit two removable pouches for razors, hair ties, or your toothbrush.
To buy: $55; dagnedover.com.
8 Travel Accordion Wallet
Made for avid travelers, this wallet includes an area for your passport, cash, and seven cards. Since it’s super slim, it will fit in your carry-on bag without taking up too much space.
