They say good things come in small packages, and that’s certainly the case when it comes to this season’s micro bags. What they lack in size, they make up for in style, and are an easy way to add (a little) impact to your wardrobe. Chloé’s collection of ‘Aby Lock’ bags are a pick’n’mix of minaudières in mock-croc and lizard finishes, and a color palette of taupe and nautical navy-and-white, while Salvatore Ferragamo’s boxy hold-all in burgundy leather is similarly delectable. Hold yours by the handle with an elegant pantsuit for a chic workwear look, or wear it across the body over a sweater or trench coat at the weekend. Inspired by the shapes and details of equestrian leather goods, Loewe’s two-tone shoulder bag will also double up as a smart clutch for the evening. Interpreting the trend with more than just a hint of irony, Jacquemus’s blink-and-you’ll-miss it Le Chiquito style is fast becoming a micro handbag icon. What to put in there? We’ll leave that up to you.
