We’ve seen pint-sized styles for awhile now, but designers have really outdone themselves this season. Stunning shapes, luxe materials and eye-catching details prove that mini bags are having a major fashion moment. Yes, it means editing down your essentials to travel ultra-light. But for the thrill of carrying one of these on our arm, we are absolutely willing to downsize.

If you’ve never met a Chanel bag you didn’t love, you’re not alone. In a show that highlighted the brand’s heritage with a giant couture studio setting, this spool-of-thread-shaped minaudière was awe-inspiring.

Hot off the runway, Fendi’s Dotcom Click is crafted of quilted Italian leather with palladium-finish cone studs. The sophisticated style is actually two mini bags in one: a detachable interior pouch can be used as a clutch. Thank you, Karl!

Chloé landed the boho luxe look with its ’70s-inspired Hudson bag, detailed with whipstitched trims, brass studding and a handmade tassel. The small version of the free-spirited satchel is updated for Fall in hunter green suede calfskin—ideal for gallery hopping and other weekend adventures.

Your next big night out, make Saint Laurent’s Love bag in gold matelassé leather your plus one. Available in small and mini sizes, the covetable design from Hedi Slimane’s final show channels throwback’80s glamour.

The epitome of Parisian chic, Goyard pays homage to its rich trunkmaker roots with the Saint Honoré mini trunk/minaudière. New go-to evening bag, found.

Small, but mighty. Valentino’s B-Rockstud micro bag is embroidered with multicolored beads and tassels for high-impact effect.
