Mulberry makes the case for itty-bitty bags with its latest micro series that packs a major punch. The line-up features some of the house’s bestselling classics shrunk down to tiny and ultra-cute proportions. If you’re looking to revisit a classic favourite, add a playful touch to any outfit with these adorable standouts.
Firstly, the Amberley satchel, a style with shape and hardware that take inspiration from the equestrian world. Coming in at just 11 cm by 10 cm, this teeny tot retains signature codes of the original design. Soft and supple bovine leather comes complete with the rider’s lock closure and crossbody strap for hands-free wear.
The Micro Amberley is available in two colours, Acrylic Green and Double Yellow. It also offers a main compartment for pared-down essentials as well as an internal pocket for cards, so you can leave your wallet at home.
Following up is the evergreen Alexa that combines elements from two of the house’s iconic styles, the Bayswater and Elkington. Everything gets the miniature effect, including its unmistakable postman’s lock closure and magnetic side buckles. Standing at 11 cm by 8 cm with an internal pocket, this cute and desirable piece has room for a small cardholder, lipstick, keys and perhaps AirPods.
The effortlessly cool satchel offers slightly more versatility than other tiny numbers. Either carry it in hand via its braided top handle or sling its removable and adjustable strap across the body or over the shoulder. The Micro Alexa comes in silver in crinkly metallic leather and Double Yellow in heavy grain bovine leather.
Lastly, the Bayswater that everyone loves for its easy-to-use format and structural silhouette. The iconic postman’s lock hardware and clean lines remain key elements for this 10 cm by 9 cm wonder. The understated creation comes with an internal pocket and a removable and adjustable strap for extra versatility.
Use it as a cute hand-carry or as a crossbody bag on hands-free days when you don’t have to tote around much. Choose from Lancaster Red in glossy NVT leather, Portobello Blue in crinkly metallic leather and Sapphire in smooth glossy leather.
Retailing at USD615 each, the micro Amberley, Alexa and Bayswater bags are currently available for sale online. So, which will it be for you?
