Farewell totes – a truly tiny bag is the ultimate status signifier
Tiny handbags from the French label Jacquemus became big news when they appeared on the catwalk during Paris fashion week last month.
The Mini Le Chiquito is a small-scale version of Jacquemus’s Le Chiquito bag, a runaway hit for autumn/winter 18. The minuscule bags were initially sent out as invitations to the brand’s show and weren’t for sale, but they did point towards a developing – or shrinking – trend in accessories. When it comes to bags, petite purses rule this season. Forget micro – it’s all about the nano.
