Oversized Bags Are Having A Moment – Or So They Say
We're not saying forget your teeny-tiny bags, but spring's about to have an influx of large, very ginormous bags that you could possibly jump into.| October 18, 2018
The time for tiny, impractical bags that fit almost half a peanut is now, and it’s almost impossible to stop squealing whenever we see one. But as much as we love them with all our hearts, a large bag that fits everything and the kitchen sink make sense, no matter how much we refuse to admit it, coming in most handy on days when the weather gets warm and you just don’t have large coat pockets to rely on anymore.
One look at the runways will show that large bags are going to be a hit. We saw the cutest bags from Jacquemus last season, but Simon Porte Jacquemus turned the trend he introduced on his head this season with a truly ginormous raffia bag with loose ends hanging out. So huge you could probably climb into it. Serious. No exaggeration.
Loewe, Self-Portrait and Ports 1961 had their own versions too. The general idea here is to keep the material soft, where the bag can morph into any shape in the event of large irregular items. It’s pretty smart. When it comes to practicality, Max Mara takes the cake with their over-the-shoulder backpack that looks like you could walk with it for hours without having your forearms die from exhaustion.
If you’ve truly run out of space and your hands are full, Chanel recommends double bagging it with a dual cross-body strap. Either ways, these large bags are really the sweet spot between practicality and fashion, and we’re loving every bit of it.
