In case you haven’t noticed, bags are getting smaller and smaller as well as progressively more and more expensive. In fact the ‘micro’ bag trend is taking London by storm. The way to wear this is two or three bags at a time. A couple of tinsy tiny cross body bags, one for credit card and key, and a slightly larger one hand held. Handbag lovers heaven! If you really want to be ahead of the game, lipsticks get their very own cross body bag. After all, who doesn’t need a bag specially dedicated to carry ones essential lip balm?
Micro Handbags are the new jewellery
This may sound ridiculous but we should view the Valentino lipstick bags like jewellery- it pretty much brings the old fashioned necklace concept, up to date. I personally stoped by the Valentino boutique to investigate. One has to see these delights in person!
How to wear the new micro handbag
The Valentino lipstick minaudière, is basically a pretty mirror compact on a long chain, with space for the Valentino lipstick tube. It looked lovely worn cross body- and there is a variety of colours to combine with the Valentino mini crossbody (just large enough for ones Oyster card) The price for minaudière starts at £450 and the micro bag was £740. So thats just over a £1000 for two very attractive bags, that can be used together, individually, casually as well as for those elusive more dressy events.
Now, I am not a fun of studded accessories, but both of those concepts are actually quite wearable. I can see me schlepping around London with my bus bus in a cross body bag, and like I said before –who doesn’t need a dedicated lipstick bag?
Never again search for those crucial items in the depths of a gigantic tote…
