Damme, that’s a tiny bag

The Citizen (KZN) - - News - Kaunda Sel­isho

While all eyes were on the red car­pet fash­ions at the 2020 State of the Na­tion ad­dress (Sona), it was DA MP Phumzile van Damme’s sig­na­ture accessory that stole the show.

Van Damme and her tiny black hand­bag, pic­tured, were bang on trend in a new style that has been spot­ted on the likes of Ri­hanna and model Bella Ha­did.

Orig­i­nally seen slung across the shoul­ders of mod­els on the Jac­qe­mus Spring/Sum­mer run­way in 2017, mi­cro hand­bags soon ap­peared on the run­ways of brands such as Burberry, Coach and Loew.

So­cial me­dia users all took their turn to share the things that they thought were so small that they would fit per­fectly in the purse. Peo­ple’s pa­tience and hope hi­lar­i­ously made the list.

While our own de­sign­ers have been slow to take on this trend, fast fash­ion out­lets across the world have re­sponded to the grow­ing trend by de­sign­ing smaller and smaller bags.

Here at home, the likes of Le­Git FIX and Zara are places one can turn to when look­ing to fin­ish off a look for a night out.

Van Damme’s accessory choice per­fectly com­ple­mented her look with­out over-pow­er­ing it.

It is for this rea­son that the mi­cro bag can be paired with any look. There’s a tiny bag out there for what­ever your sar­to­rial choices may be.
