These Huge, Functional Yet Stylish Bags Are Perfect For Every Day

After seasons of nano and small cross-body bags, designers are putting their money on larger, functional designs. We round up the best pieces of Resort and S/S'18.

Chanel’s Gabrielle

While beloved classics like the 2.55 might come across as more of a “special events” kind of bag, the Gabrielle, launched last Spring, is what we’d consider an everyday-friendly model due to its extra-long chain sling + roomier design + structured base (no toppling over, thanks). Now, it’s just been introduced in its most egalitarian fabric ever – denim ($5,960).

Dior’s Lady Dior

The Lady Dior has always been appreciated for its ladylike design. This season, it comes in a more rugged Canyon grained lambskin ($6,000), a nod to the Resort ’18 collection shown in a Californian desert. Completing the Wild West vibes: Dior’s signature logo charm in a mosaic of turquoise, white howlite and onyx resin stones, while the bag strap ($2,350) comes studded with aged silver medallions.

Tod’s Wave

That The Wave ($2,130) backpack can be transformed into a cross-body bag and is now updated in pastel hues, makes this a season highlight. Another plus? The straps can be unhooked to become a shoulder sling, adding versatility to this all-rounder.

Coach’s Swagger 27

stylish bags

This might be one of Coach’s boldest renditions ($1,295) of its popular Swagger 27 range – patches, rivets and cabochons pay tribute to the Wild West, while still retaining a sense of polish, especially with a new strap comprising of C-shaped links.
