My strategy for investing in luxury designer bags is always based on the functional or pragmatic route, rather than making in-the-moment purchases. I prefer to invest in timeless classics that I can wear over and over again. Some of my favorite timeless classics are the Chanel Boy Bag and the Dior Saddle bag. However, I do think it’s fun to invest in trendy bags once you have a great collection of timeless classics already. And why not participate in the current trend right now? Luxury designer micro bags!
Let’s get to it. Read on to learn about my favorite micro bags for this season.
Founder and French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus is taking the fashion world by storm! Jacquemus launched his brand at 19 years old and is most known for winning LVMH’s coveted Special Jury Prize in 2015.
The inspiration for the Jacquemus brand came from the beautiful South of France and two important women in his life: his mother and grandmother.
Jacquemus is most known for winning LVMH’s coveted Special Jury Prize in 2015. He has a celebrity cult following, including Beyonce, Kim Kardashian West, and Rihanna.
The Jacquemus Le Chiquito bag is paving the way for the micro bag trend. It’s also my favorite micro bag that I own!

Micro bags and accessories owned the runway at Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 show. Some runway models showed a reimagined version of the micro bag, wearing the bags in the form of jewelry.
I have the Chanel 19 flap coin purse in lambskin and soft gray color. It’s available in white and pink variations too. I love this micro purse because it comes in a gold and silver-tone chain. You get the best of both worlds and don’t have to choose a specific hardware finish.

The best way to join the micro bag trend is to invest in a miniature version of the bag you already love. Lucky for us, Dior recently released the micro-bags collection, a reinvention of their most iconic bags. The new collection includes the Lady Dior, Dior 30 Montaigne, and the Saddle bag. The micro-bag collection comes in many favorite colors: rose des vents, black, red, latte, and fun colors such as sky blue and mint green.
While I love all the micro-bags in this collection, my favorites are the Lady Dior and the Dior 30 Montaigne.
