Now and then a trend comes along that works not only as a directional style statement, but as one with actual functionality. Fantastic news! Super-sized handbags hold the key to this elusive fashion conundrum. They look fabulous, your hard-earned purchase will definitely be seen – but even better, their massive capacity means they can hold all of your worldly possessions. Happily you will be on trend as you lug your kitchen sink around town!
The Autumn/Winter 2012-13 runways were full of models carrying big and beautiful bags. At Louis Vutton, the sequined, leather-trimmed travel bags were so big that they came carried by their own porter who walked alongside each model. (Maybe you could pay a sister or force a friend to carry yours!)
Fendi offered contrasting coloured doctor’s bags in felted wool, pony skin and corduroy. If retro styling is your thing, take a note from Marc Jacob’s book who reworked old-school leather gym bags in block colours.
If you want to go all out, team your over-sized bag with an over-sized hat and leprechaun boot shoes for the complete look. Note: Fuse as many colours as possible together to create a wonderfully huge mish mash of colour and crazy proportions. Oh Fashion you wet my whistle with your bazaar and fantastically tasty trends.
