The mini-handbag trend is having a major moment since Jacquemus and Telfar debuted them in past ready-to-wear collections. But honestly, do we need to carry all that junk when we're out? We reckon just the necessities like lozenges, sanitiser, lipstick, foundation, wipes and even your smartphone are all that you need.
It’s party season, and we don’t blame you if you can’t get enough of little designer bags. The micro-handbag trend has had a significant moment since Jacquemus and Telfar launched them in previous ready-to-wear collections.
Unlike functional totes, the small handbag exudes style! It necessitates a dedication to minimalism. Even if friends, loved ones, and coworkers gasp, ‘What can you fit in that?’ nothing can stop you from displaying it. But, honestly, do we need to bring all that trash with us when we go out? We believe that lozenges, sanitizer, lipstick, foundation, wipes, and even your smartphone are all you need.
To put the little handbag to the test, we matched the necessities with today’s IT bags – Prada Cleo brushed-leather shoulder bag and Miu Miu Wander Matelassé nappa leather micro hobo bag – to demonstrate how useful these bags are.
Wander Matelassé Nappa Leather Tiny Hobo Bag By Miu Miu
Season each season, the Miu Miu Wander bag is reimagined, making it an iconic item of Miu Miu designs. The bag is made of matelassé nappa leather and has a sophisticated, three-dimensional look generated by exquisite craftsmanship. The hobo form, which combines retro influences and modern grace, has become a new synonym for modern femininity.
The spacious Wander Matelassé can hold roughly ten items, including sunglasses, a smartphone, mints, lipsticks, a bottle of sanitiser, a pen, sticky notes, and a lip balm.
Prada Cleo Brushed-leather Shoulder Bag
The subtle allure of the Prada Cleo purse reinterprets a brand symbol from the 1990s. The sleek, curving lines highlighted by the sloping structure on the bottom and sides give this hobo bag a gentle, light appearance. Brushed leather, a signature material of Prada designs, is contemporary and adaptable, ideal for experimenting with new combinations and contrasts. The silhouette is completed by the enamel triangle logo.
Measuring roughly 18.5cm in height, 4.5cm in length and 22cm in breadth, we managed to put about eight items inside the bag, including lipstick, wipes, eyeshadow, smartphone, AirPods, lip balm, hand lotion and foundation.
Miu Miu is a completely owned subsidiary of Prada and an Italian high fashion women’s apparel and accessory brand. It is headed by Miuccia Prada and located in Paris, France.
