We don’t care what Vogue, W, or Style.com say, bigger is not better this season, even if you are from Texas. There is never, EVER, a need to carry a bag that can fit you and all of your ex-boyfriends. We are disappointed that editors of our fave magazines would promote these monstrously proportioned bags. And the anorexic models chosen to carry them down the runway, do they not look like they’re about to topple over? Why would anyone think carrying a big potato sack around looks good?
Danish designer Camille Staerk said she was inspired by the oversize bags her father used to transport glass dishes and that carrying this huge magenta bag makes her feel safe cuz she can keep the necessities in life with her at all times, like her shoes. Is she a giant? How big are her feet?
The brown crocodile from Celine is a total joke, what are we supposed to do with that? I guess if we get tired from carrying this 100 pound bag we can always crawl in it and take a nap. No big surprise that Celine is owned by LVMH.
As for the patent leather tote from Chanel that is practically scraping the floor… Et tu Chanel? The House of Chanel used to be synonymous with class and beauty but recently images of Lindsay Lohan and her scabby knees come to mind and now this? Stick to Coco’s vision Karl! Stay the course! Super-sizing belongs at McDonalds and Roseanne Barr’s house! Not on the runway! Worlds are colliding and The Bag Snob is getting upset!
