Finally, a real purpose for tiny designer bags | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

In 2019, we asked what we could fit in a Jacquemus Mini Le Chiquito bag. We memed our way through the different answers: the amount of Fs you give, your patience, a mini-lipstick.

On the same year but in a different realm of culture, Apple released the Airpods Pro. It’s not the first wireless earphones in history but it boasted more power than its predecessor in a case that measured 45.2 x 21.7 x 60.6 mm.

These seemingly unconnected events triggered something. Click “Small Leather Goods” on any major brand’s website today, and you’ll find, among coin purses and cardholders, tiny bags specifically for your Airpods. It’s not a novelty for a season; it’s a staple for almost every collection.

Techies will argue about Apple’s influence, but you know a gadget is on a different level when it manages to create its own niche in fashion.


3.1 Philip Lim Airpod Pro Holder

Made of cow leather and available in several colors. It can be worn around your neck but also clipped to your bag.


Boyy Romeo Tech Nano

This is made of palmellato calfskin leather and has a calfskin suede lining. You can detach the shoulder strap if you want to carry it around in that “Yes, this is all I need” way.


Rick Owens DRKSHDW Faux-Leather Airpods Holder

This is classic Rick Owens: utilitarian and efficient while still making a statement. Made of faux-leather.


Gucci Ophidia AirPods Pro Case

Part of the Pre-Fall 2020 collection, the case is made of the beige/ebony GG Supreme canvas that has a low environmental impact. The leather is made from an “alternative chrome-free tanning process, reducing the environmental footprint compared to traditional methods.”


Miu Miu Matelassé AirPods Carrying Case


I think this is for the girly-girl with the iconic Miu Miu matelassé leather and a gold chain-link lanyard strap.


Prada AirPods Pro Necklace Case

Something for the person who’s not afraid to wear a “Look at Me” accessory.


Louis Vuitton Cat Earpods Case

 Cat ears and the classic Louis Vuitton monogram? Take my money!


Bottega Veneta Headphones Case

The perfect case to match your Cassette Bag. It has a smooth calf interior and a slot of the bottom so you can charge your earphones with ease.


Jacquemus Le Micro Vanity Mini Checked Leather Shoulder Bag

Because your Mini Le Chiquito is full for sure.
