You know what I really appreciate? The return of the oversized clutch. I’ve got lots of keys, a keyless-entry fob for my car and a Blackberry with a case on it, all of which have to leave the house with me no matter what. I’ve encountered a fair number of miniscule handbags that wouldn’t have fit one of those items by itself, let alone all of them together – don’t even think about adding in a lipgloss or card case.

The designers at Miu Miu know my struggle, obviously, which is why they’ve been so kind as to create the Miu Miu Oversized Sequin Clutch. Finally, I can carry a sparkly little bag that’s not actually too little to be useful.

Miu Miu did a good job of keeping the colors of this clutch neutral so that it won’t overwhelm an outfit – when a bag is this big and this shiny, also choosing a statement color would perhaps be too much for a lot of potential customers. The subtle gold, silver and green variation could go nicely with a lot of different outfits without upstaging the other elements of an ensemble. In addition to all of that, if you need your hands free for something, it has an optional strap. Sign me up, please. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $995.

    Its quite nice but i would have to see it in person to see how sparkly it is. Check out article in UK’s Dailymail about IT bags.

    Maybe a jokey post on the new LV backpack is worth a mention…Marc has gone too OTT on that one!

      Very funny article Merve…thanks for bringing it to our attention. I think Marc is poking fun at potential buyers of that atrocious backpack…just trying to see how far he can go with the joke. It will be interesting to see who actually has the “guts” to carry it around!

        Thats exactly what i was thinking. He probably sits there laughing his head off when he sees people like Beyonce carrying this phone cord monstrosity!!!!

      Kanye will have one in a hot minute. Just wait.

    • 19yearslater

      Oh, my. That bag is an eighties secretarial pool, Grandma’s quilt, and some randomly placed tassels. Kanye is totally getting one. (I like this lovely sparkly clutch, though)

  • Mochababe73

    Lovely bag. I like anything with a little sparkle. I agree about being able to fit the bare necessities in other tiny clutches.

    Guys i dont know if anyone has seen the news but McQueen committed suicide…. feel devastated what a waste of talent…

  • baglady

    They might not be Miu Miu but I must say I rather like the DVF one here

    I’m not a big fan of this one I feel like i’ve seen this black sequence look a hundred times over. On the other hand I fell in love when I saw the Jacquard shoulder bags they are like pieces of art. I like that Prada are branching out from their classic look to bags that are more of a statement piece it keeps things fresh and doesn’t confine them to the day bag they have something now that is more cocktail dress appropriate.

  • Elyse

    this bag is just too much. ugh. Miu Miu you can do better (fb)

  • Joyce

    design shud be better for that price (fb)

  • Adrienne Zedella

    would this snag your nylons? (fb)

  • Kristin

    I like the tiny sequins, it feels princessy to me. The strap is nice and unique, I haven’t seen that style before.

    I agree, I tend to choose bags for evening that aren’t miniscule so I can carry all the necessary items (my camera being the largest, which isn’t that large) I like this bag because it’s fun and the sequins are done in a grown up way. (ipad)

  • Naggy

    The sequins here look very much what you would use to scrub the sink with, so the overall look is frumpy. (ipad)
