Good things may come in small boxes, but great things come in big bags. This season’s designers are proving that bigger really is better with a new crop of oversized handbags that are meant to be toted around town, not to the tarmac.
Do You Mind Holding That?
If you’re carrying a new spring collection Céline, be prepared to be the designated holder of keys, wallets and lipsticks. The new oversized spring bags are a departure from the brand’s iconic Phantom and Micro styles as they are much larger, slouchier, less structured and can fit pretty much anything inside.
Forget crossbody and try full body. Depending on your height, there is a tan leather bag with a snap closure that hangs from shoulder to knee. We also love the all white rectangular tote that shouts go big or go home.
What Do You Have In There?
Don’t be surprised if you’re asked that question when carrying one of Loewe’s new satchels. From a colossal soft leather clutch to bags that feature shoulder, hand and cross body straps all-in-one (the straps are for style, but the extra support will help if you load too many things into the bag), you’ll be able to leave the house with every possible necessity.
Toss and Go
Marni goes big with leather carryalls that really can carry all. Featured in solid colors from olive green, blue, pink and white, these bag have simple design details like contrasting stitching to add to more appeal to their size.
