Are you a mini or a maxi kinda-girl? Do you take the bare essentials or squeeze your whole life into one bag? Let’s face it, we are one or the other!
The mini and maxi bags are back again for the season and can now be seen all over the high-street. Miniature bags are nothing new (the ancient Egyptians used pouches; tie-on pockets were around in the 14th century). Lets delve into our favourite bags, from their smallest to their largest designs.
THE DIOR BOOK TOTE
Let’s begin with the oh-so-popular Dior Book Tote, otherwise known as the bag that fits our whole life in it. Created by Maria Grazia Chiuri are the embodiment of casual elegance, available in various motifs and colours and more recently, shapes and sizes.
Now let’s take a minute to talk about the newest edition to the book tote family… and no, not the small, not the mini but the vertical! Are they going a bit too far with the redesigns, or are you here for it?
THE LADY DIOR
The Lady Dior is a timeless and intricate design; an architectural piece, a symbol of Couture elegance and refinement. The classic design now comes in numerous sizes; large, medium, small, mini. Offering multiple women the option to style it; whether you’re a busy on business who wants convenience but also elegance, OR the woman who just likes to brunch in style.
Next, the spotlight is all on Bottega Veneta! From the mini pouch, to the maxi carry-all shoulder bag, again, the brand has gone all out this season and the audience have just loved it. I mean the pouch clutch and square-toe shoes have become It items overnight.
And of course, the designs are keeping with the label’s signature intrecciato technique, these miniature and maxi bags aren’t just to grab the attention of the press, but they look super chic too.
So which one are you? An oversized maxi every time or the small and minimal style lover?
