Not so long ago, everything miniature became the new black, from pets to cars and, of course, bags. The Céline Nano Luggage, the Lady Dior Micro, and the Fendi Micro Peekaboo trumped their medium-sized parents as these smaller versions became permanent fixtures on the arms of fashion editors, bloggers, and it girls. But just as we were starting to get used to lugging around downsized essentials that once stuffed our YSL Muses and Balenciaga Motorcycles, the fashion cycle moves yet again to make more space. Enter the normal sized day bag. From the structured bucket bags of 3.1 Phillip Lim and Gucci to the ‘70s-esque saddle bags of The Row and Givenchy, designers have given us an upgrade in storage room with the help of carry-ons that aren’t too big nor too small.
Here, we give you a list of medium-sized bags that can take you from the workweek to the weekend.
