The Mini Mania

“It’s all about the Bag”


Whether you refer to it as a mini, micro bag, or tiny bag, you are familiar with the minibag. Mini bags, which are scaled-down copies of their larger versions, are ubiquitous on the catwalk, during Fashion Week, and in everyday life. The concept might seem rather redundant at first - in the age of the iPhone which doubles in size year upon year, what precisely is the point of having a bag that stores so little? Minis are everywhere but how did a bag with such a ridiculously small capacity and functionality become so popular and are they here to stay?

An accessory like a mini bag is fairly self-explanatory and will probably only hold a few necessities. Think of your keys, credit card, and…… that's all. We've moved on from your beloved large shopping bags and totes because right now, the small is big and all the rage. 

The mini bag more than makes up for its lack of space in terms of elegance, though. The teeny-tiny trend has been seen on celebrities, on the streets, and the runway in recent seasons.


What does your Mini tell about you?

Proud owners and wearers of the minibag have a lighthearted, carefree outlook on life that is conducive to traveling lightly and going with the flow. Greater mobility is made possible by using a mini bag; with less to carry, and less to worry about. You can just strap your mini bag on and call it a day, also limiting our collection of everyday necessities to just a few objects, it encourages people to adopt a minimalist lifestyle.


Is it Worth It?

The minis are here to stay and they've dominated the fashion scene because let's face it, smaller bags are easier to carry, lighter, and effortlessly perform the statement-making function, and bag aficionados have abandoned their roomy totes in favor of them. 

Additionally, don't discount our dopamine-inducing desire to wear things that make us happy; happiness is unquestionably the best motivation to partake in any trend, including small bags and fashion should always be fun.
