I have to be upfront and admit that I have a love.adoration of oversized bags - structured, slouchy, adorned - they're statement pieces and pretty practical too, as they hold everything.
However, after seeing bags in the 2008 SS and Fall collections, even I have to wonder, when is a bag too big? Is there a point where it stops looking like a handbag and starts looking like carry-on luggage?
In their Fall 08 collection, Hermès showed oversized versions of the gorgeous Birkin bag, while this past Spring, Mulberry came out with a gigantic patent version of their Roxanne bag. (I saw the Roxanne when I was just in Las Vegas, and it really is that large - it's not just tiny models that make it seem that way.)
What do you think? Are handbag sizes getting out of hand?
