Whether you love them or you hate them, there’s no denying that Bottega Veneta’s the Pouch and Jacquemus’ Le Chiquito bag were two of the most talked about items in the handbag world this year. Both are currently considered ‘it bags’, and though the popularity of them cannot be ignored, both are impractical in their own way. Despite this lack of wearability, designers for spring 2020 seem to have taken a cue from these of-the-moment bags as micro bags and hand carried clutch bags were seen over and over again during fashion month.
From New York to Paris and from Chanel to Tory Burch, tiny bags were spotted worn on their own or as part of a multi-bag situation and models clutched pouches by hand or cradled them under their arms. While many designers chose to feature one or both of these trends alongside bags that are also a bit more wearable, Givenchy’s collection was mostly devoid of bags with handles altogether. Naturally, Bottega Veneta’s collection featured a few different clutch bags, and the most notable was a small powder blue clutch reminiscent of origami. For spring 2020, most designers that chose to tap into the micro bag trend chose to do so by shrinking down already exsisting styles. Valentino introduced micro versions of its VSling bag and its Rockstud Chain bag, while Dolce & Gabbana outfitted models with a baby version of its Devotion bag. Below we’ve rounded up the top spring ’20 clutches and micro-bags for your viewing pleasure. Are you ready to ditch practicality for popularity next year?
