The leather on this handbag looks very similar to another bag we covered this week. Ah yes, the Bottega Veneta Boudoir Knot Clutch, with its chunky visible woven leather. Some of you did not like it on the BV clutch, but I am digging it on this Miu Miu bag.

 Miu Miu Plisse Leather Clutch

There are a few reasons why the Miu Miu Plisse Leather Clutch works out so well. First off, the Indigo leather is offset with contrasting plisse detailing. The color pops beautifully. Next this clutch has a wristlet zip pull, which makes the bag handbag holder friendly. Also, the clutch will transition from casual day wear to after-hours style.

The only con to this clutch for me is the price. I always relied on Miu Miu to bring us fresh ideas for a better price than Prada. A clutch for $850 from Miu Miu, even with its large dimensions, is far too pricey for me. What do you think? Buy through Net A Porter for $850.

    It reminds me of Bottega Veneta.

    This is one of the most unique clutches that I have seen in awhile. The price isn’t great, but maybe its worth it if you actually get to have one in your hand. However, that is just being kind because there is no way on this earth that I would spend a months rent for a clutch. I have seen Miu Miu’s other bags that have the woven leather, but unlike this clutch with complementary colors the bag had bright pink and black. For me those two colors woven in that manner spelled Barbie doll handbag, while this clutch is completely chic and sexy. I am glad they went with the gold metal instead of silver, it really warms up the bag.

      Pretty much agree 100% with everything you wrote

    I so appreciate that your links led to your post from August (09) re: the Bottega Veneta technique of weaving leather and the serendipitous origins of the signature technique. The echo of the pattern in other categories of BV production is poetic to me. Thanks MMD!

    it looks like little coffee beans at first glance..lol. I like it.

  • fwy

    Are those coffee beans that has been engraved onto the clutch. No offence, I find it eerie. I still prefers the BV although I cannot afford it for now.

    I am really enjoying seeing this indigo purple for the Fall, it’s such a great color.

  • Bren

    Any ideas on how to keep the gold metal shiny?

    Love the color. Don’t like all the metal and way too much for Miu Miu. (ipad)
