Shrinking bag silhouettes are emerging as an inspiring new item for F/W 12. Spotted on the Milan runways, these new scales complemented Fall apparel with a delicate and feminine accent. Styles varied from heavily embellished minaudières at Prada to minimalist soft satchel forms at Marni. Miniature silhouettes have evolved from S/S 12’s Mini Cross-body and Minaudière trends. Look out for more details to follow in our forthcoming Accessories City Wrap report from Milan.
