Dior Drops Micro Bags in their Iconic Silhouettes

START body

Dior just dropped itty bitty versions of their most iconic bags and we’re obsessed. The tiny purse trend is surprisingly still swinging — ever since Jaquemus’ ‘Mini Le Chiquito bag’ went viral for FW19, we’ve seen iterations of the trend from Fendi and Brandon Maxwell in 2019, to Prada’s FW21 show that featured gloves with mini zipper bags, where the tiny purse is attached to the back of the hand, and most recently for SS21 on bucket hats. All of which could barely fit a complete pair of Airpods.

This time around, Dior asks you to “Think Big” in the Micro-Bag Challenge: How much can you fit in your Dior micro?

While these pocketbooks don’t seem to be able to fit a standard-size smartphone, they’ll surely hold the essentials for a summer full of new adventures. Dior envisions the collection as a “fashion statement attuned to the spirit of the times, an invitation to freedom and movement.” Keys, cards, money, headphones, snacks, lip gloss, a lighter, a condom even — it’s all about packing light and enjoying the moment.

The series by Maria Grazia Chiuri introduces mini editions of four of the french house’s iconic handbag silhouettes: Dior 30 Montaigne, Dior Caro, Saddle bag and Lady Dior. They appear in a range of colors including black, red, and latte, and softer shades of rose, blue, and green; the mini iterations celebrate the favorite colors of Christian Dior himself.

Selections of the Dior Caro and Lady Dior bags are updated in the micro collection with precious hearts incorporated into the signature cannage quilting and charm motif. The Caro micro edition is also embroidered with delicate pearls, as part of the Dior AW21 ‘Dioramour’ capsule.

The “hand” bags are so “wittle” they can fit in a closed fist, as seen in the campaign shot by Brigitte Niedermair.
