Polène Paris is known for its practical leather options that are equal parts affordable and chic. This includes its signature offering, the Numero Un (number one) that’s designed as a fun and easygoing day bag.
Besides the regular Numero Un, the design is also available in sizes and styles like the mini, a mini backpack, a nano size and and now a new micro size. Officially the tiniest option yet, the micro is miniaturised right down to the smallest details, from its sensual curves and half-moon flap to its base studs and exterior patch pocket.
Crafted in full-grained textured calf leather and handmade in Spain, the smaller-than-small bag measures just 10 cm by 10 cm with a 4 cm width and 3.5 cm handle.
With an interior pocket and snap button closure to keep your essentials secure, the ultra-light bag that weighs 150 grams is a cute option for trips to the mall or a meal when you just need a couple of cards and a lipstick for touch-ups. It also comes with an adjustable strap for crossbody or shoulder wear, which can be removed to transform it into a handheld option.
The Numero Un Micro retails for USD170 online via Polène Paris, and is available in seven colours including safer classics like Black, Camel, Chalk and Taupe, alongside more colourful choices like Blush, Burgundy and Sage. Which colour will it be for you?
