Small is the new big.
In the season of Fall 2021, Dior is launching a new repertoire of micro-bags featuring the House’s iconic codes. The latest mini bags, which will be launched globally from 23 June 2021.
The micro-bag trend has gotten many hearts racing, with the likes of Mini Dior Book Tote Bag, Dior Saddle Mini Clutch and the Small Diortravel Vanity Case. Dior will be adding the Dior Micro Mini 30 Montaigne, Dior Caro Mini and Mini Lady Dior to the collection. These are available black, red, and latte as well as soft swatches of sky blue, rose de vents, tundra green and mint — some of the founding couturier’s favourite colours. Dior will also be revealing the Mini Lady Dior in a version delicately embroidered with pearls.
Nevertheless, the micro-bag has been a global phenomenon in the last decade. We’ve seen the magnifying effect of the micro-bag when Lizzo stole the show at the American Music Awards red carpet carrying a tiny white bag with her fingers. And with the power of social media, it drove the world abuzz. This ‘second bag’ trend was also made famous in ‘Sex and the City 2’ when protagonist Carrie Bradshaw combined a large and a small bag in one ensemble. While we know what the regular-sized bags can do, micro-bags are specially for small items like keys, lipstick or cards — living the true codes of a ‘less is more’ lifestyle.
Of course with all of that, the mini bags are as pragmatic as they are cute. TV Host and entrepreneur Yaya Zahir echoes: “I absolutely love them (micro-bags) and I think they are really cute!”
Actress and model Nia Atasha, on the other hand, reveals that she has quite a collection of micro-bags with her. “I know a lot of people I know may not understand the trend, but I think micro-bags are so unique and easily a wardrobe statement piece that gets noticed instantly,” she explains.
Both agrees that the mini bags are perfect vessels for car keys, lipstick and cards. Nia adds: “I’ve been asked a lot — what do you put in a micro-bag? And sometimes, I wonder, does it matter?”
