Would You Cop Jacquemeus' Microscopic $258 USD Mini Chiquito Bag?
The teeny-tiny trend has reached its peak.
French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus has taken over the fashion industry in recent seasons thanks to his trendy, tiny Le Chiquito bag. Now, he’s taken the comically teeny bag trend to a whole new level with the release of the microscopic mini Le Petit Chiquito from his Fall/Winter 2019 collection.
Comprised of 100% calf leather, although this bag is undeniably luxe it is indeed incredibly small, coming in at just 8.5cm x 5cm. It boasts a thin leather shoulder strap, single top carry handle and a little golden “J” emblem on the front, but of course, there’s not exactly a whole lot of space inside. Although the unpractical accessory is more of a status symbol than a functional designer bag, it’s spawned endless memes as people deliberate what they could keep in such a miniscule bag, with some of the funniest responses including “what’s left of my sanity,” “one AirPod” and “my patience.”
Jacquemus’ Mini Chiquito dropped on the brand’s web store in orange, white and pink for $258 USD and sold out pretty much instantly, although you can sign up to be notified of a restock so you don’t miss out next time around.
