After the frenzy-making Chiquito bag, the ultra-big bags are the new big thing!
Teeny tiny bags might have been a huge trend for most of 2019, remembering Jacquemus' infamous Chiquito bag, but we think the fashion gods have realised that sometimes women need 'more'. More room, pockets, compartments, and zips! We all have been blessed with an onrush of supersize bags that can actually fit all our essentials from cell phone to makeup to our pet (just saying!). These practical bags come in so many shapes and we have curated them all for you. Read on to find out which one suits your needs the best.

The brand is known for being inspired by nature in all their endeavours and likewise, the ‘Ourea’ bag takes you to the mountains. Notice the sloping structured silhouette and the signature resin handles handcrafted by traditional artisans. The bag has a magnetic fastening at the open top. And don't worry, it comes with shoulder straps too which you can take off when you want to carry an extra chic look. It has a 12cm depth which means it can carry quite a lot despite being a structured bag, which is rare. What’s more? You get a dust bag with every purchase from Naturae Sacra!
Loewe Paula’s Ibiza Cushion Large Leather-Trimmed Canvas Tote
A part of Loewe’s third drop in collaboration with Paula’s Ibiza, this bag is perfect for a beach or poolside day.

These bags have been a sellout hit everywhere so we wonder how fortunate it is that they are still in stock! This masterpiece designed by Alessandro Michele features Gucci’s signature belt buckle, red and green striped webbing, and dark brown leather edges. The best part is that it comes with a matching pouch to store your keys and lipstick. It will add to any sharp outfit for a regular workday.

Debuted in 2016, the Musubi bag has undergone enough of the seasonal makeovers. The latest Acne Studio bag has side ties mirroring the obi sashes on a Japanese kimono, a zip pouch inside for smaller essentials which keep getting lost in big bags, and its quality is top-notch made from genuine leather.

Carry spring into the fall season with another one of Alessandro Michele creations. The ‘Flora’ print it is inspired with was originally designed in the 16th century for a scarf commissioned by Princess Grace of Monaco. This bag can easily hold your tablet and a few more essentials along. There’s a slip pocket too for your cell phone. Just to let you be clear, it may be huge in size but weighs quite like air, as it is made from canvas and textured leather trims.
Fendi Runaway Large Leather Trimmed Woven Raffia Tote
Fendi finally put a raffia spin to their Runaway tote launched back in Fall 2017. This new avatar has a rattan bracelet handle so we suggest it for occasions like brunches. The raffia traces Fendi’s signature ‘F’ pattern with leather trims and it is roomy enough to store all the essentials but not for loading on extra stuff. Take it out for a spin on a girls day out.
All these ten options are beautifully functional and well-structured so you can’t wrong with any of them. Pick one (or a few more) depending on your need and liking and trust us, none of these will fail you!
