Miu Miu Lady Pushlock Bag, $1350 via Bergdorf Goodman
Right in the wallet.
For some reason, Miu Miu’s bags often don’t tempt me quite as much as everything (and I do mean everything) else that the brand makes, particularly its shoes. Still, if Miuccia were to personally deduct money from my bank account every month and send me a random Miu Miu piece of her choosing, I bet I’d be thrilled at least 11 months out of the year.
If it were the Miu Miu Pushlock Lady Bag that showed up on my doorstep, I know I would be. As a satchel or a shoulder bag (maybe even a crossbody – Bergdorfs doesn’t list the strap drop), this just-big-enough retro throwback is everything I want in a fall handbag.
This straight-laced, structured look has been in favor since Celine made us all dizzy with the Classic Box a few seasons ago, and perhaps because of its grown-up, retro-modern appeal, the trend doesn’t apear to be waning anytime soon. At $1350, not only is this bag a bit less pricey than most similar designs from similar brands, but it also seems like a deal relative to Miu Miu’s rising prices. Does anyone still remember when Miu Miu was a Prada diffusion brand? Aren’t diffusion brands typically…less? And really, that’s the only complaint that I have. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $1350.
