Carry on: our favourite mini bags for every occasion

As we start to spring clean our wardrobes, a fresh new outfit calls for updated accessories to match. We’re all guilty of lugging around miscellaneous bits and pieces in our handbag, on the off chance we “just might need” our entire beauty regimen or seven different pairs of sunglasses. In the spirit of spring, we’re swapping out our heavy duty carriers for lighter alternatives. For some inspiration, we present our curation of the most stylish mini bags, guaranteed to complement any outfit.

Louis Vuitton

If you’re constantly rummaging through your bag for that parking ticket, lip balm or house key, the search ends here. Louis Vuitton has answered our prayers with the Multi Pochette accessories, a hybrid bag with two detachable elements to help you cut through the clutter. Featuring a main bag, mini bag and round coin purse, the Multi Pochette will ensure you’re always organised (or at least look like it). You can build the bag to suit your style and alternate the strap between a sporty jacquard handle for city outings or a delicate chain for evening fun.

Cartier

The iconic Cartier jewellery box has been reimagined as an equally beautiful bag, complete with a signature golden wreath adorning the edges. Staying true to the maison’s jewellery heritage, the Guirlande de Cartier has been sculpted to perfection in calfskin leather. The collection is available in three sizes, with four colours of leather to choose from (including the iconic house red). Each bag can also be embossed and personalised with your initials and comes with an adjustable and removable strap for those who prefer a cross-body bag. If you’ve ever dreamed of receiving a Cartier jewellery box, let this bag bring your imagination to life.

Loewe

Direct from the Paris runway, Loewe’s latest accessory is the newest addition to the Lazo family. The compact Lazo mini carries the trademark front belt knot and cinching straps in a soft, luxurious leather. With curved accordion sides and a spacious interior, the bag is the ultimate pairing of luxury and functionality with an understated elegance. Handcrafted in Madrid by master artisans, the meticulous detail and finish is a work of art in itself. Make a statement with the bold ochre and brilliant red colour ways or stay neutral with a soft brown or staple black. Destined to have people asking where you found such a bag, learn how to say Loewe in confidence here.

Tod’s

A signature accessory, the Tod’s D Bag was named after Princess Diana who styled the bag with many of her iconic looks. This year Tod’s have given their cult classic a modern update with their D-Styling Bag, evolving even further with the newest micro design. Embracing the mini-bag trend, the D-Styling micro is the perfect companion for coffee dates, short commutes or if you just want to feel a little lighter with your bag. With a softer silhouette, the bag features a double zip with curved leather straps that create a soft butterfly shape. For those who are more adventurous with their style, the micro comes in a smooth pink velvet for maximum impact. If you’re wondering what to pack in your bag, let Irina Shayk be your guide.
