Ever wonder what drove the mini handbag fashion trend? What if we say it has something to do with the economy?

No doubt that the (mini bag) trend was led by top fashion brands, like Chanel, Gucci, Chloe, and Fendi. It was and still is the must-have fashion piece that all girls should have in their wardrobe. Not only it carries weight off your shoulders, it is also a fun way to make a statement to your outfit.

On the brand/manufacturer's side, producing mini handbags is a way to increase customer base and ultimately, increase or sustain sales. The world's economy has not been in a good cycle and customers have been holding back on expenses.

So by producing mini handbags, brands can lower the price of item and still maintain their product quality. This gives them a better chance to convert the masses (which is often the larger portion of the population) in purchasing their product. 

Think of it, more people can own a Chanel bag now because it is more affordable.

However, it(mini bags) has its own disadvantage because you can't fit EVERYTHING in a small bag. This is especially true and stressful for women who are constantly on the go and needs to have EVERYTHING in their bag (ie. umbrella, shawl, books, water bottle, snacks...). The most asked question or concern about mini bags that we have gathered through our customers and research reports, is if it fits their phone or/and their purse. Many of us have gotten ourselves huge smartphone and long wallet which makes it tougher or rather troublesome to carry a mini/small handbag.

So, some of us ended up sacrificing our wallet and dump all of our cash, coins and receipts in a little compartment in the bag. Sounds familiar?

This has got to stop.
