Burberry’s Pocket Bag has shrunk down another notch, this time coming in a fancy micro size. Which makes it even smaller than the existing range of mini sizes. Perfect for those who love packing light and carrying only the barest of essentials, this teeny-tiny alternative recently arrived at Burberry Singapore boutiques.
Despite measuring only 18 cm by 15.5 cm, the micro manages to retain signature elements of the Pocket Bag. These are evident in the oval cut-out and oversized pocket detailing right in front. It looks pretty well-proportioned, even when slung like a compact crossbody bag over the shoulder. The accompanying extra leather shoulder strap makes this a cinch.
The two available options are slightly different in terms of colour and construction. Natural/Malt Brown has a full leather pocket with a small gold-tone logo at the base. On the other hand, Orange has a tonal canvas pocket with the brand’s signature lettering in embroidery. Otherwise rather minimal, down to a single card slot (matching the bag’s colour) within the inner back lining.
Retailing at SGD1650 each, here’s a quick suggestion if you need help deciding between the two. Go for Natural/Malt Brown if you love a safe and classic combination, or simply head straight to the Orange if you’re all set on a bold, vibrant hue.
