If you've read enough Editors' Picks and roundups of what the Fashionista team carries around during fashion month, wants for the holidays or from online sales, chances are you've seen a number of mini-bag mentions from me. Yes, I have a bit of a fixation on teeny-tiny handbags because I'm all about carrying the smallest amount of things possible.
My go-to mini bag has been a small version of Mansur Gavriel's signature bucket bag, but I've worn it so much over the past three years that I now need a new version to add to my collection. Enter Cuyana's mini bucket bag. Its croc-embossed leather is a cool upgrade to the sleek style that I usually carry around, and I love the wide top-strap for sturdy mobility.
Plus, the San Francisco-based brand is known for its minimal yet thoughtful approach to design, so every detail across its clothing and accessories are created with strong attention towards details and functionality. For this bucket bag, an interior pocket allows me stow away my phone and other small belongings without having to rummage for it later. There's also a leather tie to close the bag, too, so my possessions are in safe keeping.
At a recent Cuyana preview that I attended, which also showcased the label's newly launched Body line, I spotted yet another croc-embossed bag that's set to be available in April. It's a half-moon-shaped crossbody and, you guessed it, miniature. So I definitely have that bag on my wish list, too.
