Go big or go home: Meet the ‘It’ bags making a case for the oversized silhouette

If what fashion’s cognoscenti have been carrying on the streets and catwalks of Paris is anything to go by, it’s time to size up our daily carryalls and experiment with proportions. From Loewe’s larger iteration of its iconic Flamenco clutch to Gucci’s spacious Aphrodite shoulder bag, it seems that ‘oversized’ is the order of the day.
