The New It Bag Holds One AirPod

Gone are the days of handbags that require a five-finger grip. This fall, it’s all about pinching, because Simon Porte’s minuscule Jacquemus Le Chiquito somehow got even smaller.

At Paris Fashion Week, Porte presented Jacquemus’s autumn/winter collection, titled La Collectionneuse, filled with a relaxed blazers loosely-buttoned, breezy summer dresses in varying lengths, chunky high-neck turtlenecks, and more in a sunny palette of hot pink, green, blue, white, and yellow.

As for accessories, Porte played around with proportions, leaning into the oversize bag trend with a massive pink tote while keeping true to his affair with micro bags. Fashion editors and insiders were given the new itsy bitsy iteration of the Le Chiquito bag as an invitation to the runway show and models pinched the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it accessory down the runway.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t intrigued by Jacquemus’s teeny tiny bag trend, but as a commuter who lugs around a backpack filled with five different nude lip glosses, a pocket-sized lotion and sanitizer, a wallet, snacks, and a half-consumed bottled of water, this absurdly tiny bag can’t possibly work outside the runway. So what can you actually fit in the bag?

Fake eyelashes (glue not included).

One stick of chewing gum, perhaps a Trident?

$2.75 in coins because let’s face it, your MetroCard won’t fit.

One AirPod.

A mini snickers (in case of emergency).

An OB tampon.

Extra earring backings.

One single fuck to give (use it wisely, my field of ‘fucks to give’ is barren)
