This Spring/Summer 2022, however, there seems to be a vibe shift: big bags are back. We’re talking tote bags that are equally spacious and stylish, functional accessories that you can actually wear to work—not just show off on Instagram.

Chanel may be known for its petite purses, but the French luxury brand has officially co-signed the tote bag trend with the Chanel 22 handbag. A distinctive departure from anything we’ve seen from the fashion house before, the Chanel 22 boasts a casual look with its soft, pillow-like structure, crafted from supple, quilted leather.
The bag has a wide opening—throw in whatever you want!— and can be carried by its elegant metal chain strap interlaced with leather. The Chanel 22 is designed to give women the freedom of movement, and many stylish stars would agree that it does the job, including Irene Kim, Christelle Lim and Yoyo Cao. The best part? It comes in a range of colours, from a hue as fun as pink to more classic, work-friendly ones like black and white.
