From textured handbags to refined satin clutches, discover Vogue Philippines’ edit of the best mini bags to invest in.

In need of a wardrobe staple that will withstand the test of time? Opt for a versatile mini bag. A new contender in the investment echelons of timepieces and high jewelry, designer bags are considered wearable art (thanks to luxury fashion houses ChanelHermés, and Louis Vuitton). When considering whether a piece is worth purchasing, it’s important to consider the quality, design, and craftsmanship behind it.

More recently, a slew of stylish miniature accessories have been making their rounds in the fashion crowd including Jacquemus’ Le Chiquito, Prada’s shrunken nylon Re-Edition 2000, and Balenciaga’s nano Neo Classic City bag. With angular shapes, metal embellishments, and ornate prints, the options for a glamorous accent piece are endless. Needless to say, the scaled-down handbag makes for an impactful piece and has earned its place among the worthwhile lifetime purchases.

From Fendi’s Peekaboo bag to Neil Felipp’s Medusa & Midas minaudière, Vogue Philippines lists the mini bags you should have on your radar.
