Jacquemus' Le Chiquito Bag

This brand-!

I love Jacquemus. I love everything it stands for, what it represents, that easy, breezy chic vibe! 

Every season, I'm intrigued by their shows. There's some form of fresh, free-flowing energy that comes through in all of their collection which I truly enjoy. I think Simone Jacquemus has created something utterly wonderful. Even when you watch his Instagram stories, he always has a smile on and has consistent, good vibes! His collections truly reflect his sensibility which is truly rare these days.


The Le Chiquito bag comes in a canvas bag (which perfectly fits their aesthetic), a tag and a strap. Definitely, definitely it's pricey for what it is! However, you ultimately buy into the quality. It's nothing insane to the price point of Louis Vuitton or Chanel but it's definitely up there.

The bag has a solid structure and design which makes it a loveable piece. When you hold it, it's certainly not a delicate bag. (At least in this type of leather and size) The design is simple yet has a cartoon-ish appeal due to its size which makes one feel like their younger days holding a toy. The leather is durable and grained so there's no need for worry. 



Now, this doesn't seem to be a lot! And if you're talking about a daily context, of course it isn't!

But this bag can definitely fit in a small perfume sample, a lipstick, those Watsons packet of wipes, wad of cash and a couple of credit cards. You'll definitely have to carry your phone with you though which may not be good if you're going to commute and the like. If you're going out to party with friends, out on a date or just an evening event, I think this cutie would definitely love to come with you and keep you company. 


It's just a simple strap. No big deal. There's no branding element to it either so you can use it for your other bags if you so wish.

This bag definitely begs to be carried top handle though!



PROS
  • Sleek, chic design
  • Can be carried two ways
  • Solid leather

CONS
  • Pricey
  • Impractical
  • Trendy
There are different sizes to this bag but the small version definitely won a lot of people's heart for good reason! It's cute, compact and fun! I would, however, recommend purchasing a bright colour for an added punch!

Thank you very much for reading! 

Love,
