Celebs are all over the globe this week, and yet their bag choices are oddly in sync. Bags from Fendi and Saint Laurent are obvious faves, and a hot new style from Miu Miu has just made one of its first appearances on the site and you’re sure to have an opinion about it one way or another.
There was a time when I loved Miu Miu bags even more than Prada, and you could spot the bags being carried all over the place. The brand’s handbag production seemed to go to the back burner for a bit, though, and how I felt about them went along with it.
So this marks the second appearance of a Miu Miu-carrying celeb on the blog this week, AND also the second mention of Aspen, CO – which is the ultimate trendy, cozy haven for wintering celebs. (Christina Aguilera also spent the holidays there with her man.) This time, it’s Melanie Griffith making her way over an icy Aspen sidewalk while carrying a ruched leather Miu Miu Chain Handle Bowler Bag.
Here’s the infallibly fashionable Miranda Kerr bopping around in Los Feliz, CA, carrying a Miu Miu Madras Crossbody Bag. She’s had this bag in rotation for a while, as you can see in our “The Many Bags of Miranda Kerr”.
Earlier this year, we posited that something was amiss in the Miu Miu handbag design department, and in fact, someone I spoke to at the brand intimated that the bags weren’t selling as well as they used to.
I find it a little bit tough to write about Miu Miu‘s handbags. I love the brand as a whole so much and have such a huge respect for Miuccia Prada, both as a woman and as a designer, that the state of Miu Miu’s handbag business pains me a bit.
