Perhaps more stylish than overtly practical, the mini bag trend is forcing us to cull our handbag contents, with just enough room for the essentials. There’s a clever strategy behind the creation of miniature versions of cult classics, with Business of Fashion explaining how labels like Fendi, Chanel and Mulberry are creating smaller designer accessories at a (slightly) more affordable price point, with the Chloé Drew and Valentino Rockstud designs available for less.
Whilst you may not be able to carry your brolly or latest read, these investment pieces allow you to tap into the high-end accessories look at a more reasonable price. Not only are they timeless and built to last, they also look cool – as demonstrated by legions of street style stars, who prove there’s something enviably low maintenance about not needing to carry much in tow.
Effortless, light and a great access point to the biggest designer names, we recommend saving those pennies for the tiny bags that pack a big punch.
