We’ve been having a love affair with Il Tutto baby bags at Babyology ever since the first Mia tote caught our eye all those years ago. It was the most glorious un-baby baby bag we’d ever seen and we all fell fast and hard for its charms. Fast-forward five years, and Il Tutto is still the luxe bag brand on every new mum and mum-to-be’s wish lists.
So today we’re taking you through Il Tutto’s online boutique to show you why we’re so enamoured of these gorgeous bags. When Lucie Trinco, the designer and founder of Il Tutto, was looking for a name for her brand, Il Tutto just seemed to fit. Not only because it sounds incredibly stylish, but also because in Italian, Il Tutto means ‘everything’ – and what mum, or woman for that matter, doesn’t have the entire world in her handbag?
Lucie, a former Creative Director for Oroton, designs each bag in the Il Tutto collection herself, from the initial rough sketch, through to technical designs on the computer, choosing the leathers and watching the bag come to life. She knows exactly what women want from a handbag and, expecting her third child very soon, she certainly knows what mums want from a baby bag.
Beautiful and practical, Il Tutto’s range incorporates baby bags, after baby bags and wallets. Bags have removable linings, insulated bottle holders, change mats, pockets and compartments for everything a new mum or mum with older kids could possibly need, and they are made to withstand tugging hands and grubby fingers. At the same time, they look incredibly good at work and out and about. No wonder they’re beloved by both celebrities and everyday mums like us.
The collection includes the divine classic Mia in cream or red (above), and the rock-star of nappy bags, the Nico. Seen at the top of this post in navy, it also comes in black, nude and the most eye-catching shade of red.
The latest addition to the Il Tutto family, the After Baby bag (shown below in tan), is already a must-have for mums out of the nappies and bottles phase who still need room to tote toys, snacks and other child paraphernalia. I have one and use it every day to cart all sort of things for my three kids.
Il Tutto wallets and bags are priced from $129. Buy online at Il Tutto or find them in David Jones stores or selected boutiques nationally. Find out more about these covetable baby bags by browsing our Il Tutto archives.
