Many of you have bemoaned the rise of micro bags since they emerged several seasons ago, and for you, we finally have some good news: the pendulum is starting to swing back toward big bags. During the Fall 2016 shows (and especially in the ultra-influential Paris collections), runway bags kept getting bigger and bigger; usually designers choose petite versions of their accessories for the runway so they don’t overwhelm or obscure the clothes, so the size shift is important.
That prompted me to take a look around the ever-growing number of spring arrivals at our favorite online retailers, and based on what I found, the size of fall’s runway bags doesn’t appear to be a fluke. Although there are still plenty of mini bags to be found (And there should be! I am all about choice.), it looks as though designer have remembered that many of the customers actually need to, ya know, carry stuff. Even the crossbodies are getting bigger!
Below, check out well over a dozen of the best new big bags for spring and rejoice that you can actually carry your Kindle in your new bag from here on out.
