Adorable Chanel Minis That Should Be On Your Radar

Mini bags may be competing with midi bags for the top handbag trend of the moment, but that has absolutely no bearing on our love for them. Minis are perhaps the most versatile bags around—no bag transitions quite as well from day to night as, say, a mini Chanel Classic Flap. Plus, they’re unbearably cute.

If you couldn’t already tell, PurseBop is a longtime mini devotee. And she knows that no one does “mini” better than Chanel…

As such, we’re always on the lookout for Chanel’s hottest minis. Anything from the classics to the brand’s newest releases—we’re not biased! Here’s our round-up of PurseBop’s favorites at the moment.

Chanel Mini Classic Flap

Okay, let’s start with the bag that you knew was going to be on this list. What would a Chanel mini round-up be without the Classic Flap? Here, we’ve chosen it in a crocodile-effect, metallic gold iteration from the (Egyptian-themed) Métiers d’Art collection. We love this version, and it totally exemplifies what’s so great about this adorable bag: the absolute versatility.

Chanel Camera Case

Is it just us, or do camera cases always turn out to be the perfect mini bags? They’re such simple zip cross-bodies, with an easy-to-use shape. And Chanel classes this bag up with chainlink straps and the classic CC logo.

Chanel Gabrielle Small Hobo Bag

Since the Gabrielle was released in 2017, it’s become an instant classic: the kind of bag whose legendary status creeps up on you, and suddenly it’s on every celeb’s shoulder in town. We think it’s perfect in its tiniest form, and especially in this faux-croc version with just the right amount of monochrome detailing.

Chanel Mini 2.55 Flap

We know this may be controversial, but we think the Chanel Mini 2.55 Flap might be even cuter than the Mini Classic Flap… PurseBop has always loved the original Chanel Flap, with its storied history and evocation of Coco herself. And like the mini Classic Flap, it’s one of the most versatile bags around.

We think this subtly-graffitied 2.55 is fun and yet, at the same time, sophisticated. Dare we say a perfect mini?

(Another) Chanel Camera Case

Admittedly, this is one of the stranger camera cases around. (Who knew camera cases could also be egg-shaped?) But there’s something so whimsical about this odd, charming bag. In this beautiful blue, it reminds us of a robin’s egg…

Chanel Mini Flap Bag & Coin Purse

This Chanel mini has a lot of elements of its classic bags: the quilting, CC lock, chainlink strap. But it also feels new and modern—a combination of the things we love about Chanel with a twist. And who could resist the minuscule coin purse? We just may be adding this one to our wishlists…

Chanel Métiers d’Art Evening Bag

We saved a particularly exciting one for last. This will definitely be a love-it-or-hate-it bag, but we couldn’t resist including this gem from the Métiers d’Art collection. We’re simply smitten by this Scarab beetle minaudière…
