Milan Fashion Week Proved that it’s not Too Late to Hop on the Micro-Bag Trend

First popularised by Jacquemus, micro-bags have taken the fashion world by storm. The proof was on the Milan Fashion Week runways, with bags resembling the French fashion designer’s Le Petit Chiquito in size making repeated appearances.

Silvia Venturini Fendi‘s first womenswear collection saw tiny beaded bags secured with fine gold chains and worn as necklaces; similar to Emporio Armani where the bags resembled cassette tapes and were slung around the neck with chains. At Jil Sander, the bags took a cylindrical shape in white leather while at Tod’s the miniature bags came in leather still but joined by coin purses and iPhone holders clipped together onto wrist straps.

Though impractical, the tiny bag trend is clearly going strong. If nothing else, you would at least be able to carry a pair of Apple AirPods in the most stylish way possible as the micro handbags that came down the runway for Dolce & Gabbana‘s Spring 2020 runway show were fitted with AirPods to further emphasize the point.
