Mini Masterpieces

They say good things come in small packages and when it comes to the mini bag we couldn’t agree more. Small in size yet packing a punch in style, a bite-sized bag is the hottest new accessory you need on your radar, and your arm.

First capturing our attention when the likes of Celiné and Chanel created unbelievably cute miniature versions of their iconic bags, they’ve grown in popularity and are currently a major attraction on the AW15 runways with many more designers getting in on the act. Look out for bum bag styles (yes, you read that correctly) courtesy of Marc Jacobs and the mini bucket bag shape as seen at Mulberry. You heard it here first…

Despite being small in size, they’re surprisingly big on detail with all the design features you’d expect from a full size version. “But how am I going to fit everything inside?” We hear you ask. You’ll be surprised at how much you can fit in these pint-sized purses. Plus, we think it’s about time we emptied all the junk out of the black hole we call our handbag and learn to only pack the essentials. With a smaller price tag to match their size, if our bank balance doesn’t thank us, our back certainly will.

Not only stylish, but also good for our posture, we’re ready to wave goodbye to our back-breaking bulky bags and hello to these irresistible tiny totes. Spotted on the arms of the coolest IT girls around, it seems we are not alone. Not only the perfect accent for a polished evening ensemble, a dainty bag also works just as well with a more casual look – Alexa Chung, for example, pulled together an effortlessly stylish festival outfit when she paired her miniature Chanel purse with a pretty crochet dress at Glastonbury.
