Call it the mini-me syndrome. The latest bags are often scaled-down versions of large-bag styles with familiar silhouettes. In the case of Coach, a variety of varsity patches cover the surface of a small saddlebag. Hugo Boss offers a petite leather interpretation with a camera caselike shape. And Alexander Wang rocks a diminutive version of his Rockie, adorned with a pot leaf motif — part of his rowdy message this season, evoking punk and other forms of youthful rebellion.
If you needed convincing that good things come in small packages, here’s your proof.
Check out our other call-outs among the season’s best trends, from footwear — tall boots, chunky-heeled shoes, mary janes, men’s-inspired shoes, low-heeled boots — to accessories — top-handle bags, small shoulder bags, clutches and evening bags — to jewelry such as necklaces and earrings.
