If you love Balenciaga’s Bistro bag, you should check out the even smaller size known as the Bistro XXS that’s equally functional but way cuter. Measuring 28 cm at its widest and 14 cm high, this tiny little carryall is perfect for making a statement wherever and whenever. It also comes in exciting colours like Beige, Green and Light Pink that are vibrant hues for spreading good vibes all around.
Each bag (or basket, if you prefer) comes with standard dual handles along with a long shoulder strap. This will give you multiple ways of carrying, whether you prefer holding it via its top handles or having a hands-free look by slinging it casually across the body.
No one’s stopping you from using it as a mini grocery basket, though you can always use it as an everyday bag as well, due to its fuss-free ‘open top’ format. There’s also an inner zipped pocket to keep essentials safe at all times, while everything else like a small shawl and beauty essentials can be thrown within the main roomy compartment.
The Bistro XXS Basket with Strap will go for SGD875 each, and Balenciaga Singapore has plenty of options available at its online store right now. Grab one for casual weekend outings and it can even double up as a fancy basket for mandarin oranges (and red packets) during the upcoming Lunar New Year.
