Well, this is strange. Or at least I think it is; you guys can be the final judge. To celebrate the global Fashion Weeks (which kick off today – everyone say a little prayer for me and my sanity) this season, Miu Miu is launching a grand total of 46 one-of-a-kind bags starting with 16 at the brand’s Prince Street boutique in New York. The bags went on sale this morning, with the remaining 30 showing up in London, Milan and Paris over the next few weeks.

All of the designs are a variation on the same theme – a small, ladylike satchel with an oversized frame that made its debut on the Spring 2012 runway. The materials vary from printed wovens to studded crocodile and the prices go from $1495 on up, but I’m not sure that there’s a single bag in this group on which I’d spend the money, not even for something one-of-a-kind from one of my all-time favorite designers. Check out the New York bags after the jump.

    I’m usually all about frame bags and these aren’t calling to me either – but it IS a good idea!  Baby steps in the right direction :)

    Really cool concept but I agree the actual bags are a bit meh, with maybe the exception of the nude croc with gold studs. Maybe the European ones will be better?

    The only one I like is the all-glitter silver, but still would not pay that price for it.

    OOh, not a fan of these at all.  They remind me of the old furniture that my grandmother had.

    I literally stared at these bags for 10 minutes.. I love them!!  But judging by the other comments I’m the only one..  Oh well… plenty of bags in the sea, as they say!

    They are beautiful. I can see myself spending big bucks on something like this at some point in the undetermined future, because they are pretty and unique to the event.

    Looks cheap

    These are horrible.  Not sure what they were thinking with these.

    I think they are actually cute, of course for someone who is into this style of bag.  Especially the denim with the snake trim.  Cute for a nice summer evening hanging with the girls.

    I love them!! My god I would spend $145 on a miu miu bag any day of the week-especially these ones!
