Everyone loves a good mini bag. All the better if it’s functional, nicely made and won’t break the bank. Ticking all the right boxes is the Numéro Neuf Mini from Polène Paris Numéro Neuf Miniaris, the TikTok viral leather goods label that’s famous for its minimalist and timeless creations.
Chic, cute and compact, the number nine style is a shrunken down version of its big sister. It boasts the same elegantly simple silhouette that’s free of unnecessary bells and whistles. Instead, hand-stitching holds draped leather in place, a feature that strikes the perfect balance between flexibility and structure.
Measuring 14 cm by 22 cm by 12.5 cm, the Numéro Neuf Mini is handmade in Spain. Unlike its predecessor, however, the mini size doesn’t come with an interior zip pocket. But it still offers sufficient room to comfortably hold your daily must-haves or after-hours essentials, which can all be secured with a magnetic closure.
It also scores extra points for versatility, thanks to its detachable and adjustable shoulder strap. This means you can easily toggle between hand-carry, shoulder and crossbody wear, depending on your look of the day. And because everyone loves choices, the petite darling is available in 10 colour options.
Choose from either textured grain leather in popular colours like Blush, Camel, Mauve and Taupe, or a fluffy shearling piece in Ecru. Whichever you choose, the Numéro Neuf Mini rings in at USD520 a pop via Polene Paris’ online store, which offers shipping to Singapore from USD25.
