It all started with Jacquemus, the French brand, which last year showed the Mini Le Chiquito, a microscopic small purse that was shrunken down to a wee 2-inch height. Soon an onslaught of diminutive bags (granted, not as small as Jacquemus’) took over the collections. They were seen as necklaces—or very, very chic lanyards, depending on how you looked at them—decorating the necks of models that ended with vintage-style kiss-lock coin purses and boxy totes. Here are our top 5 favorite mini bags for the fall season, all available at Aventura Mall.

The truly micro-sized bags usually come attached to larger handbags, as they are the perfect size for carrying coins and other tiny oddities, while mini bags are often hung on a strap that can be worn as a necklace or cross-body, which are ideal for carrying a few cards and a bit of cash at most.
