The French brand Jacquemus, one of the most influential fashion houses of the moment, is partly responsible for this trend. Stars such as Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and Chiara Ferragni have already been spotted with the Jacquemus micro bag Le Chiquito. The micro bag is not really practical, and the limited dimensions put us in the terrible dilemma of leaving our keys or makeup at home.
But fashion doesn't have to be practical. Jacquemus designer Simon Porte proves this by launching an even smaller version. During his show for the Fall / Winter 2019, he introduced Le Petit Chiquito: microscopic bag with dimensions of 8.5 cm by 5 cm. Le Petit Chiquito is finished with a leather shoulder ribbon, a handle that fits just around your finger and the golden letter J.
Despite the question of whether this can still be called a handbag or not, Jacquemus manages to seduce the fashion public once again. On Instagram, there is plenty of speculation about what exactly is in the bag, and that leads to these funny answers: 'one AirPod', 'what remains of my common sense' or 'my patience'.
