When it comes to handbags, first and foremost, functionality should be king. Right? What’s the point of a beautifully designed, impeccably crafted purse if it’s a pain to carry, is difficult to get into, or doesn’t actually hold what you need? The big bag has been primed for a major comeback in recent years, and despite the seemingly endless trend of mini and ultra-mini bags plus a continued focus on work from home, making a big bag feel obsolete, the big bag trend continues to pick up steam.
Now, there’s no denying that the big bag is indeed back, and the ultimate cool girl, Zoe Kravitz, just debuted the latest from Anthony Vaccarello and the House of Saint Laurent. The star and fashion icon paraded around LA this past weekend with the latest logo bag. She shared three consecutive snaps on her Instagram, debuting the brand’s latest.
Introducing the Saint Laurent Icare Maxi Shopping Bag
The Saint Laurent Icare Maxi shopping bag is a welcome change to the mini and micro bags of the moment. Designed by Vaccarello and crafted entirely of soft lambskin with a flat lozenge quilting. Finished with a maxi-version of the brand’s notorious YSL hardware, which is sculpted like jewelry and crafted entirely by hand. This shopping bag is not your average; designed to pack a punch in style and function. The bag is just another reminder that the bigger the bag these days, the better.
The Icare Maxi Shopping Bag retails for $3,990 and is currently available for pre-order online and in select stores, and it will be widely available this coming May. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one to carry a big bag every day, adapting to today’s trends by streamlining what it is that I carry. But Ms. Kravitz makes me want to be a meetings-going, matcha-drinking, boss-lady with my big bag in tow. Discover below and shop current Saint Laurent via MyTheresa.
