We’ve been covering the “mini bag trend” for a while, and it’s still as popular as ever! The perks of having a mini are undeniable: they’re versatile, great for traveling, popular on IG, generally more affordable, and simply adorable. (Read: Complete Guide To The Mini Bag Madness)
And it’s not just IG fanatics and fashionistas who lust after mini bags. Celebrities cannot get enough of them! In order to compare some of favorite mini bags—the Hermès Birkin, Chanel Classic Flap, Céline Luggage Tote, and Hermès Kelly—we decided to compile an eye-candy list of major celebs toting them around. Take a look at the gorgeous mini eye candy below, and then you be the judge of which mini is best x
Hermès Mini Birkin
We’ve written extensively on the Hermès mini bag craze. (PurseBop even revealed her own mini Birkin in April!) The mini Birkin, which is an exact replica of its “mother” bag, is 25 cm. While H seems to be ramping up their production of B25s, a mini Birkin is still exclusive and hard to come by. It’s a true gem!
Chanel Mini Classic Flap
A mini take on an already small classic, the Chanel Mini Classic Flap bag isn’t too different from the popular medium Classic Flap. If you’re curious about how the two compare, especially with other Classic Flap sizes, check out PurseBop’s new size guide with two models carrying the various Classic Flaps!

Céline Mini Luggage Tote
The Luggage Tote has reached legendary status. As Céline’s most popular and iconic bag, it’s earned a place on the ultimate “It” Bag list. Though it’s famous as a larger tote, perfect for work and ideal for carrying around your everyday needs, the highly structured Luggage Tote has become increasingly popular as a mini bag.
Hermès Mini Kelly
With a return to Hermès, we’ve come full circle. The mini Kelly is a huge craze—in fact, there are 3 Kelly bags that qualify as “minis”: the Kelly 25 cm, Kelly 20 cm, and the new Kelly Mini II. (Read about the mini Kelly sizes here!) The mini Kelly is gorgeous and the perfect, fuss-free crossbody.
