The Big Black Shiny Bag

Hit bags always leave behind a trail. Back when the Chloe Paddington became 'it', designers everywhere (mostly highstreet brands) suddenly started adding padlocks onto their bag designs. Last season, the oversized Chanel patent leather bag hit it bag after Kate Moss was seen carrying it, looking very cool and all. Then the editors of various magazines and super styish people wanted it. And then puff, it was all sold out! The bag caught on the trend for many reasons -patent leather, oversized, simple. Now, many similar looking bags have caught on:

Technically, this bag isn't a copycat -it's from last season's Marc by Marc Jacobs collection. I was quite surprised when I first saw this bag, because believe me, it was huge! It's also available in black/navy.
Tod's D-bag is simple and practical. Plus, it gives that big, black and shiny block feel that the Chanel bag gave off, except of course the Chanel one looked cooler, and this one more basic-looking.
This bag's by Marni. It's another big black of shiny black with the added Marni twist -bug-shaped and quirky.
This Marc Jacobs shopper bag is another lovely simple black patent leather tote.
The YSL Downtown patent leather tote bag is another super cool black shiny bag. I really like this one too (apart from the Chanel one).
And finally, I know this isn't big or black, but doesn't this Bebe bag's design totally remind you of the Chanel one?
Isn't it interesting to see how different designers and brands interpret the oversized, shiny, black bag design?

I love them, they're completely my style, but the Chanel bag is simply the best out of the seleciton you posted. When I saw it I was like, I want that bag.

I only like the burgundy Marc Jacobs. The others are just ... too shiny (and, yes, I know it's patent). The MJ is more of a muted, more crackly patent.

I refer the Tod's bag, it's more structured whereas the Chanel bag is more like a black patent sack...

I really like the bag by Marni. Though this is shiny black with the added Marni twist -bug-shaped and quirky but it has that professional touch which I always look forward to. Moreover, I personally think that people have full liberty to choose the bag as per their personality.

You're so right! I totally noticed this as well when I saw the Kooba Natasha bag back in December:

I love the MJ black shopper...the Chanel one is insanely expensive.

The Cabas is actually vinyl, not patent leather. Which makes the price even more insane, though I love it anyway.

the YSL (i love them) one is the only one i really like the rest of them just seem really ugly. Almost like they are trash bags with handles.
