Supersized Handbags Are the Season’s Most Useful Accessory


The bigger the better.

Big bags are back, baby and honestly, we couldn’t be more thrilled. While the mini bag craze of 2022 saw us paring back our purse contents — forcing us to refine and redefine the concept of “essentials” — this swing to XXL-sized alternatives lets us lean into our stockpiling behaviours.

Want to bring a full change of clothes *just in case*? You got it. A few snack options to satisfy throughout the day? It’s no problem with these roomy carry-alls that also up the style factor. Take a cue from the colossally accessorised runways (3.1 Phillip Lim, Gabriela Hearst, Victoria Beckham and Stella McCartney included) and shop our top seven supersized options.
