PHOTO COURTESY OF GOYARD
Goyard’s iconic Saigon is due for a quick update, with today’s focus being the Structured Mini Saigon which is considered the latest addition to the Saigon family of handbags. It’s also the tiniest version created to date, one that measures 20 cm wide and 15 cm high, making it a compact and chic bag for all your daily needs.
Some of the key features of the bag are definitely the wooden elements found on the top handle, as well as the dual batons running down the front. Both of them are made from beech wood, known for its structure and ability to look (and feel) good over time, and a key material used in Goyard’s signature trunks.
Complete with leather corners and metallic rivets that pay homage to the French luxury trunk-maker’s roots, the Saigon is a certified classic through and through, made extra special in a miniature format that you can carry with ease. Each Structured Mini Saigon will also be sold together with a matching leather strap, giving you more ways of carrying the bag instead of just using the top handle.
While the bag features a beautiful mix of Goyardine canvas, Clamecy cowhide leather and beech wood elements, it remains pretty lightweight at just 230 grams, so you can go ahead and load it up with your mobile phone, Matignon wallet and Saint-Sulpice Card Holder without worries.
