Luxury bags have always been a highly coveted item for women around the world. The bigger, the better has always been the motto — until recent years, that is. In Singapore, there has been a steady rise in the popularity of smaller luxury bags in mini, micro and nano sizes, new and pre-loved designer bags both.
The global COVID-19 pandemic shifted work arrangements in Singapore and beyond from offices to homes. Many turned to smaller pre-loved designer bags as their carrier of choice since they no longer need to lug their laptops around. This was further perpetrated by the recent revival of popular styles from the 70s to 90s, such as the half-moon-shaped shoulder bags, crossbody designer bags with long straps, and hardware-focused luxury bags that exude a nuanced style.
While lockdown measures have largely ceased, most continue to enjoy hybrid work arrangements, with many of those returning to the office also susceptible to their already-acquired taste for smaller branded luxury bags. As such, women in Singapore continue to covet both new and pre-loved designer bags with much fervor, partly since they are much more versatile than their larger counterparts — they can be worn with almost any outfit, whether it’s a casual day out or a formal event, and because they come in such a wide variety of styles and designs, there’s definitely a mini, micro or nano bag out there to suit any individual, no matter their tastes and preferences.
Such that buyers shopping for a luxury bag can keep up with the current trends and resellers can know what branded bags to sell or put up for consignment, we have put together a list of some of the top choices of women in Singapore when it comes to mini, micro and nano pre-loved designer bags:
1. Chanel Mini Flap
Released as seasonal luxury bags, these mini designer bags are loaded with charm and unmistakable popularity. Small yet substantial, the Chanel Mini Flap is construed to be adorable yet chic, functional, and stylish. It can be worn over the shoulder, across the body, or carried as a clutch with its chain tucked into the bag. There are also symbolic renditions of this branded bag embellished with gold hardware for added finesse — such as in the Chanel AS2978 Symbolic Mini Flap — that make for eye-catching carriers for anyone seeking a new or pre-loved mini designer bag in Singapore.
2. Hermès Kelly Mini II
The Hermès Kelly is an iconic luxury bag that even collectors and celebrities swoon over. The Hermès Kelly Mini II pays tribute to this fashion icon as a modern mini rendition that exudes greater ladylike chic. While mostly carried by its curved top handle, the Kelly Mini II also features a dainty shoulder strap that is perfect for carrying crossbody so you can go about your business in a hands-free fashion. This designer bag comes available in multiple Hermès signature colours, such as this pre-loved Hermès Kelly Mini II in Chai/Miel and this Hermès Kelly Mini II in Gris Meyer, GHW.
3. Chanel 19 Mini Pouch
The Chanel 19 Mini Pouch features an of-the-moment aesthetic that takes the Chanel Shopping Bag and turns it into a petite masterpiece for the most personal of your belongings. Blending contemporary style with the Maison’s unique savoir-faire and premium-grade leathers, the Chanel 19 Mini Pouch is highly sought after on a global scale. Getting your hands on a new or pre-loved designer bag of this model may thus be a little difficult, but doing so is undoubtedly a worthwhile endeavour regardless.
4. Hermès Mini Evelyne
Known otherwise as the Hermès Evelyne TPM (Très Petit Modèle) or Evelyn 16, the Hermès Mini Evelyne is the smallest luxury bag in its line. This simple shoulder bag was originally designed as a carryall for horse groomers’ tools, with its signature perforations that form the large ‘H’ made to enable airflow, such that said tools are kept dry between use. Fast forward to today, the Hermès Mini Evelyne is prized for its minimalist style and callback to practicality and hard, honest work. Countless women in Singapore seek a new or pre-loved Hermès Mini Evelyne to call their own — get yours today from LUX.R or engage us for consignment services to help you sell this branded designer bag quickly and profitably.
