Ah... the current "IT" handbag, Celine luggage bags. Its fame and popularity seemed to have come out of nowhere. Since its release a few short years ago, prices have been sky-rocketing. Here's a review of the highly coveted Celine micro boston bag, and some differences between it and its sister bag, the mini.
Celine's luggage bags are particularly versatile. They are roomy and polished enough for an office setting, while still looking very fun and trendy for the weekends.
The most common and well-known Celine bag is the mini; it is also the most sought after bag out of all of the Celine luggage bags. The almost identical micro is slightly smaller than the mini by about 2 inches in width and height. When looking at the bag at a glance, both the mini and micro would be considered as medium sized handbags.
In my opinion, the micro looks better on thinner statures and for those who are petite. Whereas, the mini better suits those who are taller. If you're of average height and average build, go with your usual preference. I tend to prefer small/medium handbags vs. medium/large, so the micro appeals to me more. If you're familiar with Louis Vuitton Speedy's, think of the micro to be like the Speedy 30, whereas the mini to be like the Speedy 35.
The micro is also much harder to find than the mini, as it was not produced as heavily. While there are many pictures online of the mini being carried, there are fewer pics of the micro. And, because the bags are so similar, it can be difficult to distinguish between the two.
The Celine micro bag is extremely roomy and can store plenty. We put a wallet, cell-phone, and a 9.5x6 inch notebook, and you can see that it is still mostly empty. There are few bags that are this easy for retrieving and depositing items. It's very easy to use with a smooth running zipper over the top and large opening. All micro bags will have a zippered pocket inside. Some micro bags will also have some open pockets inside too.
Celine luggage bags come in many different finishes, and some leathers and materials are softer and slouchier. This particular micro uses a smooth calfskin. It's quite rigid, and even with the bag fully loaded, its form remains.
