Miu Miu Wooden Handle Tote

I am constantly drawn to cream colored leathers. Browns and whites can be harsh at times, so adding a bit of cream to tone it down is the perfect option. And whites do not have to stop being worn after Labor Day, in fact winter whites are perfectly luxe for the season. But I typically opt for a white that is creamier. And the soya cream leather on the Miu Miu Wooden Handle Tote offers a feeling of winter resort. The wooden handle does give the bag a very resort feel, but would look perfect in a more tropical area (like South Florida). The wooden handle may not fit on your shoulder well, and even if it did it may grind into your shoulder a bit. Of course Miu Miu added in an optional detachable shoulder strap. I adore this bag, adore the color of the leather, and adore the wooden accent. Buy through Net A Porter for $1350.

    I like it, but it might be a bit too much like Gucci with the wooden (sort of bamboo-like) handle. It is quite similar to the new Marni tote on NAP (http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/37750), but I actually prefer the Marni as it is a bit more unique. But I do love the creamy colour on this one, although I could never pull it off.

    Actually, you are right on both points. Very Gucci-like and similar to some Marni bags. The color of the leather I adore though :)

    How did I end up on a blog about purses? I think I have been looking at twitter a little to long. You ladies go right ahead and talk about them, because I have no idea what the difference is between a gucci and a mui mui lol

    Have a wonderful day ladies!

    What’s with the two Miu Miu logos on both the handle and the bag?

    I can live with just one, thank you very much…

    Reminds me of Gucci too! I wish the body of the bag had a little more design to it thou.

    I don’t know much about Miu Miu, but I think this bag is LOVELY! I, too, am suddenly lusting after a “winter white” bag and this one looks creamy and smooshy and delicious. Not sure how comfy that handle would be, and the strap actually looks a little skimpy for the bag, but the gold hardware jazzes it up and all in all, I think this is a winner! Off to look for interior pics…

    I like it. Don’t agree with the gucci references. Miu miu is a bit more refined, imo.

    i like it the handle looks a deep navy to me which makes me like it even more.. i tend to like creams to but i always wear more of the worn down browns/blacks..

    i especially love this bag because its an everywhere bag, i could totally see myself going to class with it.. i agree with katie, miu miu has a different flare to its designs maybe it doesn’t really but i get a whole new perspective looking at a miu miu bag.. i just really adore their dresses and shoes =]

    the more i actually look at the more i fall in love with it.
    im very tempted to spend an amount of money im limited too and spend it looking for an affordable department knockoff :P

    This is a great bag, I’d buy this for the hotter months, I love the color

  • sksy

    this is so lovely. i think that the soft gold buckles accentuate the beige colour so well. as always with miu. can’t get enough of this colour.
