Real talk, can we stop buying things just because the internet tells us we should? I’m not here to rag on millennials, I am a millennial, but I have had enough with the totally impractical, ridiculously over-the-top insta-worthy trends. This not so outrageous rant comes on the heels of the latest instagram click bait from experimental French label Jacquemus.
Jacquemus is not shy about creating thought provoking and outrageous designs. In fact, late last year the label garnered worldwide attention with the release of the Le Chiquito Mini Bag. This itty bity leather bag costs a whopping $535 and holds next to nothing. Naturally, it has been seen in the hands of Dua Lipa, Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, Emily Ratajkowski and more. And now, just when you thought you’d seen it all, Jacquemus is back at it introducing a little sister version of the Le Chiquito Bag. Meet the Jacquemus Mini Chiquito Bag, the mini bag we never needed in our lives.
Earlier this week Jacquemus announced on its social media channels that the bag (can we even really call it a bag?) was available online and the post received more than 90,000 likes on instagram. Shortly after the announcement fans began leaving comments of disappointment as the bag had immediately sold out. Bummed out? Fear not because you can still pre-order one via Moda Operandi for $275.
