What is a micro-sized bag everyone is talking about
Recently, noted French fashion designer Simon Porte Jacquemus' eccentric creation of micro-sized bag took the Internet by storm. Jacquemus, the man behind the fashion brand Jacquemus, labeled this bag as 'Mini Le Chiquito' bag. Part of his Fall 2019 collection, he showcased the ultra-mini bag in the Paris Fashion Week 2019 show. Unsurprisingly, the size of the bag has left the fashion world stunned.
'Chiquito' from the bag's name 'Mini Le Chiquito' literally means tiny, and it stands true to its name. Measuring just 5.2cms long, the bag is smaller than a credit card, and can easily fit in your palm. Fashion fanatics have been wondering what could this bag possibly carry, and we are not certain if it can fit even a pair of earphones.
A somewhat bigger version to Mini Le Chiquito, 'Le Chiquito' bag, measuring 12x6 cms was launched in 2018. While Le Chiquito costs around $500 (Rs. 35,000) and sold out to a range of online suppliers, Mini Le Chiquito might cost a whopping $800 (Rs. 57,000).
Needless to say, the internet is confused over this bag. Dazed, the style magazine, said, "Jacquemus, your tiny bags are getting kind of ridiculous but we love them!" Elle magazine headlined it as the "New Bag," while admitting that it can hold only one pair of AirPod earphones. Another fashion editor commented it was "the perfect size to put probiotics and digestive enzymes."
29-year-old Jacquemus has a unique style of fashion. Most of the fabrics used in his collections come from a work-wear supplier. In his Paris show, alongside Mini Le Chiquito, his collections of huge sized tote and shoulder bags were also featured.
