The resurgence of the big bag

If you’ve kept an eye on the runways in the past few seasons, you’ll have noticed the size of the bags accessorising those outfits has significantly shifted.

The house that started the micro-bag craze, Jacquemus’ Le mini Chiquito, which couldn’t even fit a lipstick, made way for countless other playful proportions in the handbag space.

Yet, as maximalism and oversized-everything make their revival, so does the mammoth-sized tote bag. There’s something mysterious about carrying a bag that could fit your whole life, and the practicality of having everything you might need on your person adds to the charm.

Slouchy and dramatic, they’re effortlessly relaxed and statement-making at the same time, like a cool aunt. Loewe, Ferragamo, and Coach are among the brands bringing back the big bag, some so gigantic they even reach the runway floor, and the resurgence is making its way onto the radars of our local designers.

Take the hint and update your work, every day, or beach bag with something bold, and big.
