Love Dior’s Micro Caro but wish it came in even more colours? Well, you will be pleased to find a generous selection across all Dior boutiques, each made in supple calfskin leather delicately embroidered with the quilted Cannage stitching. Colourful hues instantly brighten up the mood, and you can find it in colours like Black, Cloud Blue, Latte, Pale Yellow, Tundra Green and Yarrow Pink.
How small is small, you ask? Well, at 13 cm wide and 8 cm high (and with clever organisation skills), you can count on Dior’s Micro Caro to do the trick with its delightfully small proportions. Think AirPods Pro along with a small cardholder, a lip balm, as well as a teeny-tiny bottle of hand sanitiser to boot, and then some.
No stranger to you, the Caro comes in a boxy silhouette with a CD clasp inspired by the seal of the iconic Christian Dior perfume bottle. You can think of the micro as a miniaturised version of its larger siblings, but it retains all the signature elements including the adjustable chain-and-leather shoulder strap.
Do note that the strap can also be removed, so you get a small little clutch/pouch that can be used on its own or kept within bigger bags like Dior’s Book Tote. But if you’re all for carrying the Micro Caro as a bag, you can do so easily by keeping it long across the body for a casual alternative. Retailing at SGD3500, it is definitely cute and fun for the holidays. Will the Micro Caro be the next one to get on your ‘smaller than small’ wish list?
