Love them or hate them, the Bazar Shopper totes have been bestsellers since the day they were launched, an updated nod to the cheap plastic carryalls you’ll find at most any wet/wholesale market around the world. Made of leather (not canvas or plastic, mind you), Balenciaga has introduced a new size for the season, a smaller-than-small variation that’s simply known as the XS (or Mini, as she is also known).
Measuring a wee 23 cm by 22 cm, the almost-square mini tote comes adorned with a long shoulder sling, which allows one to sling it across the body if you so choose. Or, you could just carry it by its short top handles, which would also work well. Then there are the many, many different colour combinations it comes in, from the Coral/White and Mustard/Ecru combinations that you’ll find on Net-A-Porter, to a Green/Blue/Red/White multi-combo that you’ll only find online via MATCHESFASHION.
Affordably priced (and considering they are made of full lambskin leather as well), they retail for GBP885 on Net-A-Porter and around SGD1400 via MATCHESFASHION. And with Lunar New Year just around the corner, might I also add that these bags, small as they might be, will be ample enough for all the red packets you’re going to collect?
