History Of The Garment
1950s handbags were not that big, and tended to be smaller and prettier, reflecting the ornate makeup compacts they carried inside. The trend for small bags of unusual shapes exploded in the mid 1950s. Short-handled evening bags that could accommodate goods such as beauty products and cigarettes were popular for daytime wear, separate compartments to keep items organised.
