A detail shot from Valentino’s Spring/Summer runway featuring the new One Stud bags.


By Tali Jaffe Minor

Move over carry-alls, totes and duffels; this season, it’s all about packing a punch with the most minimal of footprints. Mini bags are the perfect punctuation to any Spring ensemble. Valentino introduces its new One Stud collection with ample pint-sized offerings, and at Gucci, the latest It-bag stands less than 5 inches high but certainly commands our attention. Scroll through our BHS Edit of must-have minis and remember to pack only the essentials.
