Top-of-the-line materials and down-to-earth functionality make these new leather-goods collections worth reaching for. The distinctive pieces—billfolds, briefcases, tote bags, trolleys—will carry you from week to weekend in a most stylish and orderly fashion.

Tiffany & Co.
The American jeweler’s first leather-goods collection—created by Tiffany & Co. design directors John Truex and Richard Lambertson—is a sophisticated mix of classic pieces in calfskin leather and crocodile. Befittingly, certain items bear a hint of Tiffany blue. In photo, From left: Grain leather espresso tote, $995, glazed crocodile billfolds in camel and Tiffany blue, $495 each, and calf leather briefcase, $1,395. 800.526.0649, www.tiffany.com

Santiago Gonzalez
Santiago Gonzalez, president of the leather-goods company founded by his mother, Nancy Gonzalez, used to create crocodile accessories simply to satisfy his own travel needs: a duffel bag with open side pockets for easy access, a watch roll to hold his timepieces, a slim portfolio. But when Santiago and his carry-on ran into a Harrods buyer at the airport earlier this year, she admired the bag and suggested he establish a men’s line. The ensuing collection is debuting this fall at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills and at New York’s Bergdorf Goodman. In photo, Clockwise from top: Brown crocodile tote bag, $6,200, brown crocodile portfolio, $2,085, and blue crocodile duffel bag, $4,975. 310.550.5900, www.neimanmarcus.com; 212.339.3311, www.bergdorfgoodman.com

Louis Vuitton
The latest designs from the fashion house’s Parisian atelier marry water-resistant canvas with calf leather that has been rubbed by hand with oils and wax for a rich patina. Inspired by vintage military bags and utilitarian travel bags, the collection’s totes and weekenders are destined to go places. In photo, From left: Calf leather tote, $3,550, and tote in canvas and calf leather, $2,800. 866.884.8866, www.louisvuitton.com

Zilli
This Parisian brand’s forte—using precious materials in the making of menswear and accessories—is especially evident in the company’s latest luggage series. The woven cashmere-and-chinchilla bags are exceptionally soft yet reliably durable.
