Search ‘mini bags’ on Louis Vuitton’s e-commerce site and a plethora of options will pop up. Select the tab ‘buy online’ and a more streamlined collection comes into view. From styles in full leather to others in monograms, there are icons to be found, especially if heading down to the stores to jostle with crowds still isn’t quite your thing.
These 6 styles are all currently available, all cute with some more functional than the others, but all will be around for seasons to come.
In alphabetical order, the list starts with the Alma BB (SGD2230) in Louis Vuitton’s iconic canvas, one of the first bag styles introduced in 1934. This Art Deco-inspired style now comes in an adorable size that measures 23.5 cm wide and 17.5 cm high, fitted with dual top handles and a detachable strap that offers multiple ways of carrying.
The Dauphine Micro Bag (SGD1740) is made to accommodate your AirPods Pro, with a fancy-looking silhouette and LV buckle that mimics the larger-sized Dauphine handbag. The thin chain strap easily converts this into a necklace, though you can remove it altogether and slip the Dauphine Micro Bag within your bigger bags and totes.
Moving on, there’s the Félicie Strap & Go (SGD2210), a charming design inspired by Louis Vuitton’s signature Félicie Pochette. This one’s slightly smaller at 17 cm by 9.6 cm, sold together with a removable mini pouch and jacquard strap for a casual look. More for less, and why not, right?
The next two take the definition of ‘micro’ to a whole new level, evident in the Mini Boîte Chapeau (SGD3100) and Petit Sac Plat (SGD2070). Both of them are shrunken-down versions of the hatbox and structured tote, measuring 13 cm by 12 cm and 14 cm by 17 cm respectively. While both pieces were previously sold out in a flash, you can now find them online with a simple click.
Rounding up the list is the Papillon Trunk (SGD3750), another vintage style reinterpreted for today. The updated version (19 cm by 9 cm by 9 cm) might have the same shape as the original, but it now comes with a ‘trunk’ flap and a long shoulder strap that can be used on other LV bags as well, which is always a bonus.
