Miu Miu Pelouch Faux Fur Shoulder Bag, $1250 via Net-a-Porter.

We all know how I feel about fur bags, but sometimes a fur design is so deranged that it loops back around to awesome, and those bags need to be embraced and celebrated in all of their insane glory. With purple leather trim and fake fur dyed so unevenly that it looks like it was aggressively rubbed against a brand new pair of orange jeans, the Miu Miu Pelouche Faux Fur Shoulder Bag is perhaps the reigning poster child for this phenomenon.


And when I say “embraced and celebrated,” I don’t mean bought. Quite the contrary; it’s best to gaze upon these bags from a safe distance and marvel at the limitless cojones of whoever designed them. If you get too close, you might get some of the crazy on you. Miu Miu’s bags are rarely as notable as its shoes, but this is certainly one way to get us all to sit up and take notice. Although I can’t help but think that this bag is like a college coed with daddy issues – it doesn’t know the difference between negative and positive attention. Next thing you know, it’ll be making out with its roommate at a bar. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1250.

      Lol

  • Sandra Rowley

    No way would I carry it, even if someone gave it to me.

  • Ashleyg

    O_o It looks like some kid rubbed the cheeto puff stains off of their hands with it.

    • Pixiejenna

      I couldn’t think of a better way to describe it! It really dose look like that.

    The perfect accessory to complete the glamour look of Ugg boots and miniskirts in the middle of summer.

      Well, the thing is that uggs keep you cooler than sandals do, due to the insulating effect.

      So, although it may look somewhat ridiculous, there is method to the visual madness. :)

      As for the bag, I kind of like it, in a weird kind of way.

      It’s reminiscent of the glam rock bands of the 1970s.

      Also, if it’s annoying adults, it’s doing its job! ;D

        Sorry for the partial double post – some sort of glitch occurred!

    I don’t know what to think about it… :)

    The first thing I thought was that Britney must have gotten cheeto dust all over it.

    Then I thought Muppets!

  • kirsten

    Hilarious post! But totally fugly bag. Does it really loop back to awesome, or does it just say, our brand is so cool, we can make a disgusting bag and you will still buy it? That arrogance reminds me of the LV trash bags… remember those?

  • Martha

    Ugly, non-functional, and outrageously expensive…what more can you ask for?

  • KellyX

    A completely failed design.

  • mochababe73

    Whoever came up with the concept of this bag must have been on some primo pharmaceuticals. Only an inebriated brain would come up with this.
    And those are all of my big words for the week!

  • 19yearslater

    Avenue Q called, it’s not amused by Miu Miu stealing its puppets to turn into ugly bags.

  • Paula Millers

    this designed isn’t pretty. I don’t like it so much :(

    oh this bag is awful, but the post omg too funny

    • Lucinda

      Ha ha! Love it!

      But seriously now, there are no words to describe how hideous this bag is…

  • Purse Pixie

    I mean, do they expect people buy this?

  • Mariah

    I admire the people who have the guts to carry a bag like this one. However, the price is way too high for something so crazy.

  • Jr

    Well, nice post and odd bag (actually it reminds me of Fear and loathing in Las Vegas and that’s not a good point :)) but it is a faux fur bag, so, where the prob is if someone wants to have fun wearing it? Then, talking about “arrogance of the brand” is way too much… C’mon! De gustibus non disputandum est ;)

  • Stylista

    This is…insane, yes. Is it auditioning for Sesame Street or something?

  • harveydent

    I don’t like this bag at all. Everything is wrong for me, the cheesy looking faux fur, the purpleish color, the flap…it looks like it’s going to come to life and attack you in your sleep. It reminds me of a weird character I would in Labryinth or Dark Crystal.

  • Alex

    Bad or worse,
    One thing is for sure…..It got everyone talking about it!

  • MaximizeThis

    WTH, Miu Miu killed my pomeranian for this bag…

  • VeryBerry

  • AW
