When in doubt, grab a nano!


Bigger bags are always a classic choice. But lately, smaller bags – often dubbed “nano” – have grown in popularity. Perfect for a night on the town or a quick coffee catch-up, nano styles often have just enough room for your phone, keys, and wallet – aka “the essentials.”

Most nano styles closely mimic their bigger more noticeable relatives, but they’re just as iconic. In fact, a variety of luxury fashion brands have released their own nano bags.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite chic and elegant nano bags from treasured fashion brands that give any ensemble a touch of fun sophistication.
