The Big Bag Theory

This is not a tale of how the universe came into being. It is not a story of two socially awkward scientists. No, sir, this is serious. This is about fashion, and we don’t take it lightly. The big bag or the “tote” can be dated way back to the mid-1900s. Used mainly for heavy duty carrying, it was not exactly considered “fashionable” or used as an outfit-enhancing bag; it was used mainly for its functionality. The tote bag was made glamorous later in the 1990s when fashion mogul, Kate Spade started using them as a fashion accessory.


Then awoke the era of the Tote. Fashion giants like Louis Vuitton, Goyard, Chanel, Chloe, Fendi, Yves Saint Laurent, among others, launched their own line of totes. And the world has not looked back.


Totes are multipurpose, super handy, large bags that are used to stash away a world of handy items. The size of the bag can vary, but the main idea of its construction is to have a relatively large bag with 2 handles and is to be generally carried on the shoulder. The bag can be made out of canvas, leather, suede, raffia, cane, etc. The versatile, multifunctional bag is perfect for work, lunch dates, ladies nights, movies or even the beach. You can pair it with almost any outfit under the sun, literally, from bikinis to a pantsuit. It is an absolute must have and you can find Metro’s homage to the tote here. Make this a wardrobe essential today!
