Styleaholics' post on enormous, luggage-sized handbags has got us thinking...

We've linked you up to the health dangers of heavy oversized bags before, but it seems that the trend shows no signs of slowing down, in fact, bags are getting ever bigger! All this to the chorus of hearty disapproval from some members of the blogosphere ("where will it end?" wails the Saturday Evening Post).

It could be a case of always packing to be prepared for every eventuality, or it could be just wanting one big-ass, attention-grabbing statement piece to set off your outfit (see Pixie Geldof, pictured left, whose bag clearly bears no relation to her name).

For me, it's a bit of both (I have to admit to being a fan). Either way, in the bag world at least, size really does matter... [Pui-Tien Man]
