Miu Miu. Mention the brand and an image of a young girly-girl comes to mind, Prada’s younger sister who’s not afraid to embrace bold patterns and even brighter colours. She’s quirky, she’s intellectual, she’s fun, and I would like to think, one who is aware of current trends and takes what she deems best to suit her personality and make it her own.
Sometimes she’s all about florals and plaids, other times (like this season), she is intent to take something vintage-y from Grandma’s wardrobe and give it a new twist. Which brings us to today’s #bagoftheday, an embellished floral-jacquard tote that comes trimmed with patent leather on the sides.
Measuring some 27.5 cm by 18.5 cm, the framed satchel is, at first glance, a lot to take in. From its rich floral-jacquard fabric to its oversized glided buckle that comes encrusted with all manner of crystals in clear, red and green, this is definitely something Miu Miu (the girl) will love, a bag for everyday that she can easily dress up or down with.
Made available with an additional shoulder sling which you can then use to tote this bag over the shoulder, she’s definitely not for the faint-hearted, something the Miu Miu girl is most definitely not. Priced at USD2808 and now available via NET-A-PORTER, this is one of those statement bags from F/W16 that no fashion-forward lady should be without.
