Beyond the Trend: Tiny Handbags

START

On the Spring and Fall 2019 runways, many designers opted for impractically small handbags.

While micro-sized bags are a prominent trend for this season and next, handbags began as a small-scale accessory back when women did not need to carry much more than a tube of lipstick and a snuff box. As the size and silhouette of purses have morphed throughout history, designers, royalty, and other celebrities have often reached for tiny handbags as a decorative addition, placing style over functionality.
