Guess who joined the trend of teeny, tiny accessories and micro bags? Dior.

For Fall/Winter 2021, the French luxury fashion brand has launched miniature versions of its iconic handbags, including the the 30 Montaigne, the Dior Caro, the Saddle bag and Princess Diana’s beloved Lady Dior handbag.

The Micro Lady Dior, as the fun-sized style is now called, measures no wider than 14.5cm, and sits at 12.5cm high. For Dior handbag collectors, that’s roughly three rows of the Cannage motif, the quilted stitching that’s long been a signature of the bag.

Aside from dimensions, the Micro Lady Dior also offers another twist. Look closer to the white version of bag and you’ll find heart-shaped motifs stitched all over it, a feature that the Micro Dior Caro also sports. Dior is also offering a Micro Lady Dior that’s exquisitely embroidered with pearls, fitting to the spirit of the classy handbag.

For now, the Micro Lady Dior comes in classic colours that we’ve seen on the original bag like red, white, black and grey. It’s also offered in a handful of Monsieur Christian Dior’s favourite hues, like sky blue, mint and a blush pink called “rose des vents”.

The last one was shown off by Dior ambassador and Blackpink singer Ji Soo on Instagram, who wore a ruffled, puff-sleeve crop top and a pair of light-wash jeans. The bag is the latest addition to the K-Pop star’s diverse Dior bag collection, and certainly suits her feminine and romantic style.

You may have also noticed the Micro Lady Dior on other K-Pop idols recently: a sneaker-clad Suzy Bae posted a selfie with the classic black version, while Jessica Jung was the picture of elegance with the grey mini bag.

And if you’re wondering if the bags serve any purpose aside from being a fashionable accessory, British fashion journalist clarified that her red Micro Lady Dior fit her debit card, eye drops, keys, and “everything AirTagged.”

Other pieces from the Micro Bag collection that are sure to be everywhere in the coming months is the Micro Saddle, which you can no longer carry on you arm. Instead, you’ll have to tote around the cult bag, which comes in light blue and pink, by its leather strap.
