There are a handful of impactful quotes that any fashion lover may know from movies and films. Take Miranda Priestly, known for her quip “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking” and possibly better known for her schooling Andy Sachs with her cerulean blue takedown with precision stating “This… “stuff”? Oh, okay. I see; you think this has nothing to do with you.”
But there is a new takedown that has the entire fashion industry talking (one that deals directly with bags) when Tom from Succession lets Greg in on why his date’s bag clearly signals she is an outsider to their world.
When asked why, Tom quipped, “Because she’s brought a ludicrously capacious bag. What’s even in there, huh? Flat shoes for the subway? Her lunch pail? I mean, Greg, it’s monstrous. It’s gargantuan. You could take it camping. You could slide it across the floor after a bank job.”
This was the handbag burn felt around the world, and he delivered it expertly.
In Defense of Large Bags
Regarding large bags, not all of us float in private planes, drivers, and teams who follow our every move, so we need to carry a ludicrously capacious bag to hold our daily must-have items. And as much as I have loved the mini bag trend, a bag for me needs to be practical, and a big bag is a must for the days I am with my kids and working.
From totes to satchels to travel bags in different materials, we have an all-encompassing roundup of the best big bags for the rest of us plebs who take usability and practicality in mind when purchasing a bag.
The Burberry Bag That Started the Discussion
And this is the bag that poor (double entendre) girl carried to Logan’s dinner. This Burberry Title Check Bag isn’t the most offensive of large bags, but Tom used it for his epic takedown. The classic check pattern makes this specific Burberry bag feel outdated, but I prefer plenty of newer Burberry bags for a ludicrously capacious option.
Not me telling everyone big bags are back while Tom is ripping them apart with vocabulary precision #successionhbo #bagsinthewild #greenscreenvideo
