From Chanel and Gucci to The Row and Saint Laurent, larger-than-life bags frequented many Fall/Winter 2022 runways. Some popular takes on the season’s maxi bags include 2000s messenger bag-inspired designs, slouchy silhouettes, and crescent shapes. Besides an overall trend in exaggerated proportions, the oversized carrying options reflect people’s new-found laid-back attitude and an increasing desire for practicality.
Whether you’re looking for a back-to-office bag that fits your laptop or a flight-friendly carry-on that fits all your travel essentials, we highlight sized-up bags from Loewe, Maison Margiela, Bottega Veneta, and more that will keep you practical in style.
Acne Studio’s East-West Tote Bag features an open top, interior zip pockets, and leather handles for easy carrying. Its coated cotton blend exterior in “Hunter Green” also has a washed effect that gives the bag a vintage look.
This Bottega Veneta Cassette Bag comes in a classic black colorway and features a padded intreccio nylon exterior for extra volume. Meanwhile, its foldover top, magnetic closure, interior pocket, and cross-body design further add to its functionality.
