Keeping up with the mini handbag trend, Christian Dior have recently put their own stamp on it by releasing their new Micro handbag range. Selecting some of their most iconic handbag styles, they now have teeny tiny versions available designed to fit every day essentials from airpods, to a few bank cards and a lipstick. Dior have seen the potential for taking this trend and making it their own.

The trend

It has to be Jacquemus’ that really set this mini bag trend off. I wrote a previous blog post about this back in 2019 HERE  and since then, we have only seen mini bags to continue to grow in popularity. Following this, we have been hit by a global pandemic which has really had an influence over the way we dress. Where we would once take out a larger handbag full of items (including the kitchen sink in some cases), more of us have downsized the type of bag that we take out with us, and the love for mini bags has risen dramatically. They are no longer seen as a frivolous gimmick accessory, but they are quickly taking centre stage in our wardrobe.

The Dior micro bag collection

The collection features four miniature versions of Dior’s House bags, including Lady Dior, 30 Montaigne, the Dior Caro and Saddle. Here are the details about each style –

Micro Lady Dior  – this is available in lambskin, in black, a gorgeous cloud blue, mint green and a pretty rose pink. It features the usual internal flap over detail, cannage topstitching as well as the hanging ‘D.I.O.R.’ charms. There 1 interior compartment

Micro 30 Montaigne –  this is available in calf skin and the same colourways as the Lady Dior option. It’s in the signature boxy silhouette and the flap is embellished with an antique gold-finish metal ‘CD’ clasp which was inspired by the seal of a Christian Dior perfume bottle. The miniature style has an adjustable leather shoulder strap and can be worn over the shoulder or crossbody. There is also 1 interior compartment, 1 card slot and a back pocket. This is personally my favourite out of the micro bag collection.
