Featured prominently in Coach’s new short video ‘Wild Things’ is the Bleecker Mini Brooklyn Messenger, a new season addition to the family that’s going to be another favourite for those into bright miniature bags. Measuring just 23 cm across by 17 cm, it has many good things going for it. Besides the fact that it’s small and adorable (ok, already said that) and that it comes in bright hues (ok, said that as well), it’s also pretty affordable (priced from SGD645 and up) for a bag that comes in full leather, with hardware detailing and a long shoulder sling for wearing across the body.
Also available in much larger sizes for those requiring a roomier bag, you’ll also find it in smooth calfskin, smooth calfskin with python trim, suede and even one in soft ponyhair.
Another bag worth checking out in the same colourful and miniature vein of bags that I can’t resist is the Bleecker Mini Duffle that’s a wee 16 cm across by 22 cm in height. Previously offered in much larger sizes a few seasons back, I believe this is the first time it’s been made so small, the perfect weekend companion where you throw in the barest of essentials and head on out to town. Though the price for this little wonder isn’t out yet, I’m guessing it to be just under SGD500, which would seem about right for a bag from Coach that’s made of leather.
And before I sign off, here’s the video I mentioned earlier, featuring models in elaborate animal heads, New York City and of course, the Bleecker Mini Brooklyn Messenger.
