Big & Roomy

Minimal hardware and vast stretches of unembellished leather and cotton: big, slouchy bags saturated SS17 shows. No bag is too big. Perfect for those who actually need to pack the kitchen sink. Loewe’s luxe leather hold-alls and Balenciaga’s XXL shoppers are a hoarder’s dream.

Mini & Prim

Femininity ruled on this season’s catwalks with miniature sizes, frame shapes and top-handle bag silhouettes. The best bags (for the “I carry only the bare necessities” set) are polished and structured: sleek, minimalist shapes in muted tones and white. Top of our list is Thailand-based handbag label Boyy; its Karl bag is pretty, edgy and sophisticated.
