Who needs a basic AirPods sleeve when some of your favourite luxury brands have now introduced their very own ‘mini bag’ versions? Each case comes with an additional sling so you can keep it close to you at all times, strapped across the body or worn around the neck like a lanyard, depending on how you choose to style it.
The strap also makes sure that you will never lose them within the depths of your handbag, plus it converts the traditional AirPods case into a fashionable accessory, easily making it one of the must-have designs of today. While it can get confusing locating them, here’s a quick rundown of 5 desirable ‘mini bags’ in alphabetical order.
01 – Chanel takes the lead with its snow-white AirPods case (TBA), coming in the signature grained calfskin (yes, Caviar) leather with a leather-interlaced chain strap that’s as classic as it gets. Besides, the lobster clasp allows it to be removable, so you can pair the chain strap with your other Chanel accessories, giving you a versatile piece that can be worn in several different ways.
02 – Gucci’s AirPods Trunk Case (SGD1690) was covered in detail previously over here, but if you missed out on the post, there is one important point to note. Modelled after the GG Beauty Case from several seasons back, this chic number can also be used as a bag charm that’s totally cute.
03 – It’s a no-brainer what the Dauphine Micro Bag (SGD1740) takes inspiration from, a real beauty that’s perfectly sized to accommodate a pair of AirPods Pro. There’s something elegant about the gold-tone chain that pairs beautifully with the iconic LV buckle for a finish like no other.
04 – The Matelassé Nappa Leather AirPods Case (SGD530) from Miu Miu is one of the newer designs from the Italian luxury brand, finished with the signature matelassé detailing and finished with the Miu Miu logo at the bottom. Aside from a lovely pastel Pink, this case also comes in colours like Astral Blue and Black, with all three available in Singapore right now.
05 – Prada’s Saffiano Leather AirPods Case (SGD685) rounds up the lot, with the unmistakable Saffiano leather being your go-to option if you want something that’s both luxurious yet resistant to wear-and-tear. Prada’s strap is also adjustable to various lengths, so it’s something that both shorter boys and taller ladies can pull off with ease.
