Polène Numéro Un Mini Review

It has a unique shape that is very different from what I already have, and I can see myself wearing this a lot throughout all seasons. As always, I will update this post if my thoughts change after wearing it some more. Not a single scratch or mark to the leather.

It’s small enough to work for both evening and daytime use, provided that you don’t need to carry much. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shoulder strap is both adjustable and removable. Although I don’t think I’ll be removing it anytime soon, as I’m not sure I can re-tie it as well as they have.

It can easily hold a book, my wallet, a small makeup bag, hand sanitizer, my phone, my keys, and still have room for a bit more like a scarf. I recently received the best-selling Polène Numéro Un bag and couldn’t wait to test the bag out! It’s the signature bag from the cult French contemporary handbag brand, Polène, based in Paris, France. This classic Polène handbag has become a symbol of chic French minimalism. This large Polène tote bag measures 53 cm long by 32 cm high and has a depth of 10.5 cm. The interior flat leather pouch measures 22.5 cm long by 13 cm high.

I wasn’t sure how the handle and bag clasp worked, and was worried it would be fussy. The opening has a magnetic clasp that is strong enough to keep the bag closed . Polene has been on a roll with their latest 2021 releases!

This bag screams Parisian chic, which is probably why I love it so much. I’ve always been obsessed with French style, and Polène delivers on all counts. Parisian style is known for being understated, elegant, and of course timeless, and the Polène aesthetic upholds that legacy. The clean lines exude sophistication, and this is truly a bag that will never go out of style. With such a timeless silhouette it provides an added bonus for anyone who thinks of handbags as an investment like I do.

The main compartment has my small wallet, wipes, gums, cotton pad, pens, atomiser (ahah don’t mess up with me), a fan , tissues. When I go to work, I carry my agenda and a calculator. It sells for 320€ while looking very expensive. If you need one bag for everything, this is the one. Initially I was going for the blue, but looking at it, it was too dark. I loved the red, my favourite colour but I have enough of red already.
