You’ve heard that good things come in small packages countless times, and it goes for bags just as much as it does for presents (diamonds…duh!). But Lanvin’s latest minaudière is so scaled-down it might have you pondering, “clutch or hanging flask?” But don’t try to fill this precious number with booze.
It’s just enough to fit your slim iPhone (sorry, Galaxy, you’re too big), a credit card or two, and ID. Makeup junkies ought to avert their eyes to a box clutch a step up in size. Honestly, though, sometimes being specific in function is a good thing. You can survive pretty well (and happily) with just a trio of essentials. Well, I guess you’ll need a house key, too, so just ditch the keychain. This isn’t for everyone, but I’m willing to modify my lifestyle to make this snakeskin baby work. On the upside, it comes with a crossbody strap for a fun night out. On the downside, it’s super-heavy, super-expensive (and it’s not even python; elaphe is an inferior skin!), and limited in functionality…But that just goes to show how fabulous it is for me to forget all those minor issues.
