She’s already been photographed carrying (“carrying”) Chanel in CR Fashion Book, and with parents like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it was clearly only a matter of time until little North West started carrying bags of her own, even if she still lacks the manual dexterity necessary to actually grasp them in her adorably chubby little toddler hands. Luckily, this Saint Laurent Monogramme Shoulder Bag can be draped across her tiny body.
When I saw this photo earlier this week, my first thought was that Kim and Kanye are expertly trolling us, but my second thought was that this bag must be a custom piece–it’s so tiny that it actually looks appropriately sized on a human born in 2013, and the Kardashian-Wests are a family who could easily command such a thing for their baby. After a quick search, though, it appears that this bag is a regular production piece intended for regular-size adult women.
At nine centimeters wide, the bag is noticeably too small to hold an iPhone 5, even without a case–there’s no hope of jamming it in there. I’m not sure exactly what Hedi Slimane expects you to do with your phone, unless he thinks we all have handlers following us to carry our plebeian personal belongings while we swan around New York City. Luckily for North, she doesn’t have an iPhone. Yet. That I know of. (I bet she has an iPad.)
If you want to get Nori’s look and don’t mind putting your phone in your back pocket (watch out when you’re pulling up your pants in the bathroom–I know several phones that have died that way), this little bag can be yours for the low, low price of $1,450 via LUISAVIAROMA.
