The Weekly Covet: The Most Stylish Mini Sling Bags

Camera-style bags are the season's hottest accessories.

Small bags are still the trend. The fashion industry’s newest favorite accessory measures less than a foot. A classic silhouette, the small camera sling bag may seem impractical at first, but upon closer inspection, it can fit quite a lot for night outs, mall excursions, and other occasions that call for a compact yet casual bag. Here, we’ve rounded up some standouts from this season. Take your pick.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Nappa Leather Nodini Bag

The Nodini is one of Bottega Veneta's signature shapes. It features the brand's most famous detail: The knot. Other luxurious details include suede-lined interior, an internal zip pocket, and a slender, adjustable strap. As a camera-style bag, it closes with the use of a double zipper. Greenbelt 4

Gucci Laminated Leather Small Shoulder Bag

Gucci has several interpretations of the camera bag style. Its latest, presented on the Fall/Winter 2018 runway, is made in laminated silver leather and features the emblems of the house including the double 'G' and green and red web stripe. Greenbelt 4

Mansur Gavriel Cammello Floral Embellished Double Zip Crossbody

This Mansur Gavriel design makes for the perfect summer bag. Made in Italian cammello vegetable tanned leather, the Double Zip is adorned with a bright, sun floral embellishment. There's an adjustable shoulder strap, spacious double compartment, and soft camello lamb interior.

Nancy Gonzalez Crocodile Camera Bag

Nancy Gonzalez is known for her precious skin handbags, and her redesign of the sling bag stays true to her aesthetic. We're particularly fond of this slightly matte grey camera which can be customized with your choice of strap.

Prada Leather Cross-Body Bag

If you're looking for something in between sweet and edgy, Prada's version of the style will suit your needs. Crafted in refined matelassé leather, the leather crossbody is available in three candy colors: teal, pink, and blue. What truly makes it different, however, is the chain shoulder strap which is finished in steel-like hardware. Greenbelt 4


Tod's Camera Case

Functional as it is stylish, Tod's camera case can be worn as both a shoulder bag and belt thanks to a rear fastening. It's done in the brand's signature smooth leather and features resin applique trim that resembles the pebbles on the underside of the Gommino loafer. Greenbelt 4

Saint Laurent Lou Camera Bag

Channel a chic French woman by choosing Saint Laurent's version of the style. Though nondescript, the bag features the YSL's classic details: a leather tassel and the interlocking YSL logo embossed at the center. The Saint Laurent Lou stylishly comes in black, grey, red, beige, off-white, and nude.

Valentino Rockstud Cross-Body Bag

Top off a simple outfit with Valentino's Rockstud camera-style bag. The minimal design features Valentino's unmistakeable platinum-finished studs and hardware, a zip closure, and adjustable strap.
