Whilst I’ve been declaring that small is beautiful and urging you all to invest in smaller handbags, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be faced with something so tiny it’s absolutely useless. Yes it’s pretty, there’s no doubt about it, but when the Valentino Plexiglass Mini Minaudière only measures 6 cm by 6 cm with a depth of 4 cm, it’s one minaudière that’s also guaranteed to hold almost nothing.
Adorned with studs that go around the clutch that’s about 5 times shorter than Hello Kitty (she is 5 apples tall, after all), the tiny plexiglass bag also comes with a long metal sling and retails for EUR1100, which really, isn’t quite worth the money either.
Yes, small is (still) beautiful, but this honestly borders on ridiculous. Even if it’s quite pretty.
This one, however, isn’t that bad. Measuring 17 cm by 12 cm (Pink Plexiglass Minaudière, EUR2800), it’s certainly roomier than the former though not by much. Still, anything’s better than the Smurf-sized clutch. Really.
