When you thought bags couldn’t get any smaller, they have, and joining the fray is Louis Vuitton’s very own Dauphine that also comes in way larger sizes by the way. But for this F/W19 offering, it has been shrunk so small you can literally wear it off your belt (or the leather belt it comes with). Measuring some 12 cm by 11 cm (yes, that’s about palm size), the coated-canvas (Monogram Canvas/Monogram Reverse) darling that’s trimmed with leather is the perfect size for most nothing, except a single car key, a lippy, cash (folded, of course) and cards.
Finished with an additional hardware metal chain that’s pretty long, you can also wear it across the shoulder like a sling bag, which would make the SGD2730 asking price a tad more palatable, since you are technically getting a bag that can be worn 3 different ways. Slated to be in boutiques come August 2019, there’s really no harm heading down first to put a full deposit first because like so many of LV’s bags recently, there will be a wait list.
