Simon Jacquemus is one of the fastest growing names in high fashion – and it’s his tiny bags that are arguably making the largest impact.
The French designer’s purses may not hold much in terms of items, but what they lack in practicality they make up for with stunning, intricate design.
Jacquemus recently made waves at his Le Splash runway in Hawaii earlier this year, showing off his summer collection in a stunning runway on the beach – where many of the bags featured starring roles.
Made exclusively in Spain and Italy, the often tiny bags can come at a pretty huge cost. The most famous Jacquemus bag, Le Chiquito, starts at a little under $500. While the larger, Le Sac Ciuciu, can fetch more than $1,000.
The good news is that there are plenty of other cheaper options if you’re looking for a small bag to make a big statement. Here we break down each Jacquemus bag, and then provide our favourite Jacquemus dupes – so you won’t need to Le Splash out.
