I have recently been obsessing over Reed Krakoff’s Mini Atlantique satchel for its clean, minimalistic yet functional design. While the protruding flaps on the side may resemble Celine’s Luggage Tote or Phillip Lim 3.1’s Pashli, I think the Atlantique’s design is functional for it contains pockets instead of merely an aesthetic design. The Mini Atlantique is comparable in terms of size to Celine’s Micro Luggage and slightly bigger than the Phillip Lim 3.1 Mini Pashli (just by a teensy bit!). Perhaps my adoration also stems from the Mini Atlantique being less well-known, something which this article addresses. (I tend to prefer understated items where only like-minded individuals would recognize the item.)
It seems that I have recently been hankering for a black bag, a void in my capsule collection of bags. Sure, I have the Marc Jacobs Palais Royal Flat Case which I use regularly as a clutch and also the Chanel Reissue Wallet on Chain for my essentials but nothing that is medium sized to fit my essentials and my camera that has a messenger strap! The Soft Flap bag from Sophie Hulme sits on my wishlist but it’s now being contended by this number from Reed Krakoff!
