A luxury fashion brand has created the handbag of your dreams – that is, if you’re looking for a purse that isn’t actually capable of holding anything.

On Monday, models walked down the runaway at Paris Fashion Week holding miniature handbags that appear to have been small enough to carry with a single finger.

The bags were designed by Jacquemus as part of the French fashion label’s Womenswear Fall/Winter 2019/2020 collection.

A variety of the micro bags were displayed throughout the show, including ones in white, red, and orange. And while some designs featured a single handle, other bags included an additional long strap.

However, each bag shared one detail in common: a gold “J” encrusted on the right corner.

But micro bags weren’t the only accessories carried during the fashion show. Jacquemus also unveiled a selection of oversized handbags at Paris Fashion Week.

The tote styles were so large that models appear to have been barely able to wrap their arms around them while walking down the runway.

It’s unclear when the new Jacquemus designs will go on sale, or how much they will eventually cost. But the brand is currently selling similar options online. At the time of writing, the Jacquemus online store offers micro bags in a variety of colours and styles, which range in price from $US240 to $US504.
