PHOTO COURTRSY OF COACH
Good things come in small packages. For Coach, this means a set of four itty-bitty micro bags presented in a black box featuring an expressive dragon illustration by artist Lian Yang. Part of its Lunar New Year 2024 collection, the Micro Box Set features scaled-down versions of classic styles. Each features all the same details as the originals, but in ultra-cute proportions.
Firstly, there’s the Micro Studio and its timeless good looks. In glamorous metallic silver leather, the 12 cm by 8.5 cm darling comes with the signature pushlock closure. It offers ample room for cash, cards, keys and lippie. It also comes with an adjustable strap for easy over-the-shoulder or crossbody wear.
Up next, the versatile Micro Tabby in beige pebble leather also comes complete with its signature hardware. Though this mini-me measures just 12.5 cm by 7.5 cm, it packs multifunctional pockets galore to organise your cash, cards, AirPods and keys. The style features two detachable straps, a shorter one for hand-carry and a longer one to sling crossbody.
Then there’s the Micro Trail Bag, a more elusive silhouette that’s part of the Coach Originals collection. The 11.5 cm by 9 cm version of the beloved top-handle rounded vanity design now turns heads in metallic gold. It opens via the wide zip closure across the front, offering easy access to your belongings within. Simply sling it across the body, over the shoulder or carry it by hand via the top handle.
Lastly, the structured Micro Sammy Top Handle in calf leather appears in an auspicious deep red hue for the occasion. The 11.5 cm by 8.5 cm miniature fits all the markings of a Sammy, including its iconic pushlock closure and four protective feet on the base. Attach the extra detachable crossbody strap to the top-handle bag for hands-free convenience.
The Micro Box Set retails at SGD1600 at Coach stores islandwide. In all honesty, that’s a decent price, considering you’re getting four classic styles in different colours. Whether you love a fun micro accessory or can’t decide which bag to go for, this set is the answer.
