With Y2K coming back into fashion, mini bags are all the rage. In the era where Kanye West was singing "a baby Louis Vuitton under her under arm," the mini bag had a monopoly on the 2000's. Now the iconic shape is seeing a new light with the shoulder bag trend that's currently going on. With bags such as the glass bag from Coperni taking over the accessory game, here are must have mini bags for the spring and summer seasons.
