Elle Fanning was recently spotted at LAX carrying a bright cerulean blue Miu Miu Bugatti Bag. No surprises here: it was recently revealed that Elle will be one of the four young actresses featured in Miu Miu’s spring campaign, so it makes sense that she’s repping the brand in her day-to-day life.
Miu Miu Handbags and Purses
I once heard on some HGTV design show that in order to successfully incorporate an accent color into a room, the color should appear in three places. I’ve never personally tested that theory, but it seems true. When working with the decreased surface area of an outfit, on the other hand, that number can be decreased to two; a single note of color can feel random or ill-conceived, but if you can pick up that color in a second, more subtle place in your ensemble, you’re on the way to success.
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. It wasn’t hard to imagine why that was – unlike the brand’s highly covetable and widely lusted-after shoes, the bags were just…ok.
Katy Perry tried to keep it low key at the airport this weekend whilst channeling Diane Keaton, just a little bit. That delicious two-toned bag on her arm is the Miu Miu Patent and Leather Satchel. I have so many questions surrounding Katy’s color-matching get-up, like why is Katy accenting her Miu Miu with a red rose?
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.
