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.

    I think that Miuccia understands the power behind Miu Miu and sees it not as a diffusion brand, but a brand on it’s own now. While Miu Miu is supposed to be contemporary, it has definitely reached a larger target where I believe it can raise prices. Where as Marc by Marc Jacobs is ultimatetly a diffusion line with a specific target audience, contemporary with matching prices.

    This bag: Hybrid between Coach and Jason Wu.

    Rose60610, I totally agree!

  • MizzJ

    That’s true, I totally forgot it was a diffusion line! It seems a bit unfair that just b/c a brand is popular, they decide to transition into a higher price bracket. Isn’t the point to dominate their original chosen market? Anyway, love the bags!

    Looks like 1980’s Coach to me.

    Complete rip off of Mulberry’s polly push lock. Miu miu needs to do better than this.
