To some it may seem like a joke, but in recent years the fashion industry is betting more and more on mini handbags. To the point that luxury brands, such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel or Hermès have joined this trend too.

Sometimes the big brands create their minis handbags from scratch, based on brand new designs. But the most successful ones are those that are mini versions of the classic designs, such as the mini Kelly of Hermès, the Timeless mini of Chanel or the Speedy Nano (that we have mentioned a few weeks ago in our post about the history of the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag).
