Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia can probably be most directly credited with getting this look going in earnest last season with the brand’s giant, simple zipper totes and duffels inspired by the thin, light bags often used by the homeless and otherwise destitute to move and organize their worldly belongings. Thankfully, the rest of the field took their designs in less problematic directions this season.
These oversized bags mostly fell into one of two categories: totes and hobos. If you were a bag lover in the mid-to-late 2000s, the hobos in particular will look familiar to you, but mostly in a good way. If you often find yourself needing to carry a ton of stuff in everyday life, this season is for you. Check out the season’s best runway examples of the trend below. (And not to say “I told ya so,” but we did call this one a whole year ago, almost to the day!)
