SS12 trends | Mini love

Do you know that handbags have shrunk?

I am not talking about the small bag- big bag alternating seasonal trend (remember this post?) I am not talking either about handbags for little girls, which caused a stir when they came out. I am talking about the altogether new, recent trend for big brands to produce mini versions of their mainstream lines. I have seen several examples in the store, including (from top to bottom) Yves Saint Laurent's Mini Muse Two, Celine's mini Luggage tote, and Mulberry's mini Alexa.

As in love as I am with all of them, they present a couple of problems for me. First, there is their price, which often is not very different from the full size models. Second, there is their utilizability. In my scale, a handbag where I can fit just my phone, keys and change (God forbid, no wallet) is just one step above a clutch. I have to tell you though, they are amazingly crafted objects. Should I have that extra grand in my bank account, it would be difficult not to splurge on the mini Muse.

P.S. This is the fourth post of our SS12 trends issue. Earlier posts:

  1. Thanx for sharing these designer bags. Women love to carry bags wherever they go. Designer bags are also a very important accessory of fashion.
