Think of it this way, mini bags are still the rage, easy to wear and make total sense when you’re out shopping the weekend away. You can take this cute number out to tea or bring it along when you’re out painting the town red. Besides keeping you hands-free (as you sling it over the shoulder, or wear it across the body), it fits its very purpose as a bag, small as it might be, the right size to keep your essentials in one tightly edited space and close to your body.
Why black? Well, black goes with literally everything in your wardrobe (with some of you out there raising your hands in unison, yes I see you). Besides being easy to match, stains hardly show up on black bags, making it the go-to colour of choice when it comes to bags. Right?
With all that said, here are 5 small and beautiful bags from luxury brands at Paragon you should most definitely consider this season. First up, we’ve got Loewe’s Barcelona (SGD2490) which comes in smooth box calf. Its elongated strap allows for easy crossbody wear, or can be doubled up to function as a cute sling over the shoulder.
Talking about cute, the Sylvie Leather Mini Bag from Gucci (SGD3080) has been given an adorable update. It retains all the iconic elements like the green/red nylon web and the metal buckle closure, but is given an extra top handle for you to tote along the streets. The Sylvie also comes with two straps – a standard leather shoulder strap and another twisted nylon web strap, both of which are detachable with a 20” drop.
Rounding up the selection of bags with metallic elements, we’ve got this special edition lace-cut Cahier from Prada (SGD4310). Prada’s Cahier range has been selling well since its first launch a couple of seasons back, with limited number of pieces for sale each time around whenever a new design launches.
For a more pared-down look (read: timeless), look no further than these two bags from Givenchy and Balenciaga. Givenchy’s Nano Horizon (SGD2100) and Balenciaga’s Blanket (SGD1870) both feature the respective house’s logo on the front and come with removable shoulder straps for days that you just want to top tote the cute number out. The Blanket is a new design from Balenciaga and its top handles are also retractable, meaning you can hide them in and hold it as a mini clutch/pouch as well.
These 5 bags have another thing in common. They are all available at Paragon right now. Which means all you really need to do is to hit one mall and check all 5 beauties out at the same time. And while you’re shopping, do know that Paragon is currently running a mall-wide promotion.
Simply spend SGD800 from 24 March to 16 April 2017 and you can redeem SGD50 worth of vouchers at Paragon Concierge, which can be used at the mall. In other words, shop and be rewarded with a nice meal at the end of the day, or more shopping perhaps?

All the bags you picked are great but my favourite one is still Loewe’s Barcelona!
