To celebrate the Fall-Winter 2012 Fashion Week calendar which kicked off last weekend in New York City, Miu Miu will be releasing a total of 46 one-of-a-kind handbags respectively in their boutiques in New York City, London, Milan and Paris. And true to Miuccia Prada’s style of always pushing the boundaries, she uses 17 different material combinations (and 12 special processing techniques) for each hand-made bag.
The result? A smorgasbord of bags each more unique and special than the next. From pleated leather pieces to those covered in exotic croc, from humble canvas ones that are then delicately embroidered, they will each come with their own special ID card, plus a little booklet showing all 46 siblings in this special collection.
And if I had to pick one, this would be it from the first lot that’s only available in New York City. There’s something about the juxtaposition of the raw canvas and refined embellishments that make it very visually appealing. Do you have any favourites?
