Small wonder: the tiny new Italian Poppi leather bag
Diminutive, yes, but the season’s cutest bags are small enough to take in hand yet pack a punch. From Jimmy Choo to Balenciago, the SS15 style boils down to minimal measurements on structured bags in classy two-tone colours. So we were delighted to see this style so beautifully captured in the chic new Poppi, just arrived in London from Italy.
Named after one of the most beautiful small towns in Italy, the neat little Poppi is designed and made by an established Italian handbag specialist in quality leather. It is deceptively capacious—the measurements are just 17 x 19 x 7.5 cm (6-7in by 3in)—enough to carry mobile, keys and wallet, along with the all-essential hairbrush, lipstick and makeup.
The colours are fabulous: hunting top-boot style in light tan and black or black and dark tan; super-smart Ascot style in black and cream, cream and black, navy with cream or cream and light tan. Then there is pale mushroom with chocolate, baby pink with chocolate and navy with dark tan.
Smart and stylish with its two-tone colours and metal trim, the Poppi is also practical and secure. It has a full top zip closure and the adjustable leather shoulder strap allows you to use it as a cross-body for travelling or racing—the two exterior full-length pockets give easy access for tickets and other slim items when you are on the go. The interior is lined and washable, with one compartment and a zipped pocket for valuables.
(Please note: the colour mentioned first is the most prominent when viewed at the front, the secondary colour is above it and includes the top and strap.)
