Last February, during Fashion Month, a shift in handbag trends began on the streets of New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Mixed in with the oversized clutches and doctor bags carried clutch-style were bags big enough to hold but a phone, credit card, lip gloss, and maybe some gum. The mini bag was making its way onto the scene, worn cross-body and hands-free. This season, at New York Fashion Week, the trend is continuing. The fashion folks have left their colossal carryalls at home in favor of diminutive shoulder-slung bags that can manage only the essentials, lightening their loads as they dash between shows.
