Designer Mini Bags Spring 2014

We briefly touched on the trend of miniaturizing successful bag designs last spring, but now that we’re in the back half of January and it seems like warm weather may one day come again at some indeterminate point in the future, it seems like the number of designers who have decided to make everything tiny has expanded exponentially. In fashion, unlike literally every other facet of human life, the warmth of spring doesn’t make things grow – it makes bags get smaller. Below, you’ll find over a dozen mini designer handbags to lighten your load, now and in the future.

    I think some of them look awkward when they make the bag smaller but they don’t really seem to scale the parts down (Like the Prada bag and the McQueen. I think it looks a bit cramped

    The Givenchy Antigona mini feels so awkward.

    I’m not sure how functional the “mini me” versions of these bags will be but, from an ornamental viewpoint, they are cray-cray adorbs.

    Alexander McQueen Padlock Tote, colour and design a hit

  • Lynnie

    How come all these mini bags don’t have mini price tags?

    I dont know how I feel about the mini Givenchy antigona.. it looks forced.

    I often find if a bag comes in a “small” it suits me better, but mini bags often look better on shelves than on people…

    I think some bags totally eliminate the wow effect once they shrink it (peekaboo, antigona etc.). The only bag I truly adore after they shrink it is the 2jours! In fact, I was eyeing the medium 2jours but thought it’s too heavy and too big on my petite frame, and given the size of the bag I thought it looks awkward if it’s carried by the shoulder strap (and I really need bags that can be carried on shoulder as a mom). Then two days later I discovered the mini version and viola, I was sold!

    Bring it on I say!! I am one of these strange women who only carries a wallet, keys, phone and lip balm in my bag. Pretty much ever. Despite a wardrobe of bags, i continuously use my Bal Giant Hip bag day after day after day. I have a lovely Givenchy Antigona Medium in Purple Goat which is TDF but I find it too big for daily use. I’d love a Mulberry mini bag one day.

    It would be nice to see these pictures compared to your larger counterparts so you could see the scale better

    PS1 ends up looking a little bit cluttered. I think I’d need to see one in person.

    My biggest problem is the purses with the zippers exposed- like the Antigona and especially that Prada. In my opinion, it makes them look cheap- which we all they know they aren’t! I also agree with Lynnie- you’re telling me the mini PS1 is $1475 and I can get the medium for $225 more? If money was no issue, I’d love the Mini 2Jours!

    I don’t think the proportions work very well on most of these – handle plus strap plus hardware is a lot of stuff going on in a small space. I really like, e.g., the mini Pandora because it is basically just a pouch and a strap. Chanel WOC also nails the proportions on the small bag. These minis just look overloaded to me.
