As the seasons in luxury roll by, we have come to see what was once considered small has now become the mini. We have most certainly seen a considerable explosion in popularity for the mini bag - brought famously to the attention of the masses by the likes of designers such as Jacquemus and many else. And with that, a lot of debates in fashion have followed. In favour or disfavour of the utterly impractical (but also space efficient and practical?) iterations of the micro and mini bag, we were all asked to pick a side. In which at RUSSH, no matter which way the debate swayed, it was obvious we all had our hearts set and in bias for them all.
For what some may consider as funny times, it's surely been a busy one in luxury. This year, Dior took the mini bag to the next extreme, introducing the new micro size in our favourite classics including Lady Dior and the miniature Dior Saddle. Balenciaga have also followed the micro to nano suit, introducing its new Neo Classic in a size just big enough for your keys and barely any beauty essentials. The Bottega Veneta knotted Jodie bag and Prada Nylon Pouch have also joined the list in our luxury mini favourites, without any frills and complications - an offering in a straight forward, no bullshit version of what one could expect from a reliable purse.
Always a keen lover of a classic bag complete and stamped in its house heritage, we have Celine's Ava shoulder bag in Triomphe and the Gucci Horsebit and Louis Vuitton pouchette stamped in its respective house monograms. Below as we continue rounding up our favourites for the season, we spend this time in lockdown rounding up our favourites in the mini from the best in this seasons luxury.
