You’ve heard of mini and even nano to describe bag sizes. But the new buzzword is “pico”. What exactly is that?
Dictionary.com defines pico as “one trillionth”. The term is obviously a hyperbolic and novel label to describe tinier-than-miniature bag trend that includes Fendi’s Pico Baguette (this may only just fit a pair of Airpods), Jacquemus’s readaptation of Le Chiquito, and Gucci’s new Porte Rouges pouch that’s meant to fit a single lipstick.
But these shrunken and doll-like designs highlight the fact that carrying a designer bag now is more akin to wearing a statement accessory/jewellery piece rather than carrying a practical necessity or arm candy. Here, we suss out some of the chicest “pico” bags that are only up to 10cm tall for your recommended shopping.
