If you thought the nano bag trend from a few seasons ago was silly, the rise of the mini bag shows it’s a trend that’s here to stay. Going by the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter’19 runways of Jacquemus, Carolina Herrera, Tory Burch and Marc Jacobs, where mini, micro and nano bags were trotted out, these pieces of arm candy are getting smaller and smaller.
Yes, they’re impractical but they’re also geared for people who thrive on a pared-down lifestyle and days (and nights out) where you want to bring as little as possible — i.e. just a lippie, some powder for touch up, a credit card, keys and your cell.
Some of them, however, are so teensy they could only fit AirPods (we’re looking at you Jacquemus’s F/W’19 Mini Le Chiquito). Instead, here are some that are both tiny yet useful enough so you don’t have to lug around a heavy bag.
