Bags of all sizes have always been in style. But recently, the standout options that are trending are from both the extreme ends of the size spectrum – they’re either uber mini, or extremely large.
Brands have been creating bags in tinier and tinier iterations, making them more statement accessory than actual purse. Case in point: Fendi’s It bag of the ’90s, the Baguette – rolled out as the Pico Baguette last season, a minute size that’s “big” enough to fit a pair of standard Apple Airpods. After all, good things come in small packages.
On the other end of the spectrum are the brands that abide by the catchphrase “go big or go home”, introducing larger-than-ever sizes for their bags, which are perfect for those who can’t leave home without, well, everything. At Bottega Veneta, Daniel Lee first introduced the Shoulder Pouch at Resort ’20, shaped like its highly sought-after Pouch clutch, but with a handle that rests comfortably on your shoulders.
Whether you’re on team mini or team maxi, you’ll have to try both trends out at least once. Not sure how? Don’t fret. Below are 10 of the latest options for you to choose from. Oh, and they’re definitely suitable for both work and play.
