When celebrities need a small handbag, many are choosing to tote the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle.

A versatile bag inspired by the classic trunk bags of Louis Vuitton, the Petite Malle can be worn as a neat, tailored crossbody bag during the day, then transformed into a hand-carried clutch for evening events.

The bag made its debut during the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2014 Runway show, which showcased the debut collection of Nicolas Ghesquière as the new creative director of the brand.

The Petite Malle may be tiny, but it is also one of the most extravagant bags in Louis Vuitton’s current lineup. According to the brand's website, the Petite Malle bag's price ranges from USD5,500 or around PHP265,000 to USD30,000 or around PHP1,450,000, depending on the materials used.

Here are some of the celebrities who have one in their collection of designer bags.

In a vlog she posted on YouTube last Sunday, December 27, 2020, Kathryn said it is one of her most favorite bags in her collection.

The Kapamilya star said, "I love this kasi ang ganda-ganda ng design niya. For me, it's very classy. It's very small. As in, ang nalalagay ko lang dito, a phone, a lipstick, and a mirror.

"Pero kinocomplete niya kasi iyong look. Iyong iba, ginagamit siya as a clutch, pero ako, ginagamit ko siya as a small bag. Wala pa ring nakakapalit diyan. Iyan pa rin iyong pinaka-favorite ko."

Liza Soberano also has a Petite Malle bag.

She used it last January 4, 2021, during her intimate dinner party at Bayud Boutique Resort in Siargao, to celebrate her 23rd birthday.

Fans got to see her birthday OOTD on Instagram the following day, January 5.

She paired the bag with a silk cropped top and skirt from NinetyNinety.


KC Concepcion has a penchant for trunk bags, which is why she bought herself a Louis Vuitton Epi Petite Malle with a metallic finish.

On her YouTube channel last Saturday, December 26, 2020, KC said it is her go-anywhere bag for events and parties.

"I've brought this to so many events and parties. Isa ito sa mga dinadala ko sa parties pero ang hirap kasi cellphone and lavender oil pa lang, hindi ko na siya ma-close.

"And puwede mo na lang ilagay is cash or credit card, tissue paper, ngayon mask, saka toothpick. Iyon lang iyong kasya dito."
