The theme for this year’s Met Gala might be celebrating the fusion of fashion and technology, but in reality the two worlds are in the midst of a major standoff: growing smartphones v shrinking handbags. The struggle is real. 

Trust the ever-accommodating beauty world to offer an antidote for lovers of the mini bag movement; suddenly a bevvy of brands have released micro-versions of their cult products. 

So if you’ve upgraded to 6S Plus, but downsized to a super micro-sized bag, stress (and stretch) not. These miniature products offer maximum impact.
