Balenciaga Classic Mini First

April 1, 2012

No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke. One of the smallest (and cutest) bags you can buy from Balenciaga would be of course the Balenciaga Classic Mini First, which measures just 10 cm across. Also known unofficially as the Mini Mini (it’s so small they had to call it mini twice), this wee little lass is definitely more accessory than bag, since it barely holds anything.

You could pop in a stick of lip gloss and maybe some loose change but that would be pretty much it, which is why most folks who do get it as a key ring or a bag charm. Available in all the current season’s colours, the only drawback is perhaps the retail price which is pretty steep at USD345.

Still, this little darling will find fans in those who already own the regular First and just want something matchy-matchy hanging off their bag. Or for those like me who specialise in collecting miniatures of iconic bags.

And if like me you’re thinking of getting one, most of the colours are great except for the one in Black which somehow just looks middling.

Yes, you are right. Red is now a special hue and hence will cost more than the regular colours.
