My MaxMara Whitney handbag collection expanded recently to include the baby of the family—the Whitney mini.
I hadn’t really hopped on the mini bag trend, but I have to say, I absolutely love this bag! Especially since I am not one who carries their life in their handbag. I’m a minimalist: wallet, keys, lipstick, phone.
I find myself reaching for my little Whitney when I am dashing out the door, and wear it cross-body, as a shoulder bag, and hand-held as well. The epitome of versatility. And it’s just so adorable.
However, I discovered that my zip-around wallet was too big for its scaled-down dimensions. Naturally, I needed a mini wallet to go in the mini Whitney.
I looked at many contenders—Balenciaga, Gucci, Celine—before I found this red one. I immediately thought it must be the coordinating Whitney Wallet so closely did the design reflect that of the bag.
The wallet leather is soft and sumptuous with a grey leather interior, six card slots, a snap closure at front, and a change compartment with a beautiful silver-toned logo clasp closure at top. It’s 5.5″ wide whereas the purse is 9″ across, so it’s a perfect fit without being a squeeze.
It makes a stylish pairing. I just wonder why MaxMara hasn’t released a Whitney accessory line.
Every Whitney needs a wallet.
