Ever since Bridget brought her large tote bag to Logan Roy’s birthday party, the internet has been flooded with “ludicrously capacious bag” memes. The highly-anticipated premiere of Succession‘s fourth and final season has had everyone talking about Tom’s withering attack on fashion, more precisely Burberry’s large canvas tote bag.
“What’s even in there? Huh? Flat shoes for the subway? Her lunch pail? It’s gargantuan. You could take it camping. You could slide it across the floor after a bank job.” Hate to break it to you Tom, but even the stealthiest of the wealthiest like big bags (and they cannot lie).
While we’re grateful for Jacquemus’s Le Chiquito and the way it brought micro mini bags to the forefront of our purse rotation, sometimes a girl just needs to lug around a sizable amount of stuff. Hence we say to embrace the “ludicrously capacious” bags this (and every) season.
Take your cue from the oversized slouchy carry-alls from Bottega Veneta’s Spring 2023 and play with over-the-top proportions. When they’re this chic, it’s hard not to.
