I have a hard time pinning down the Miu Miu handbag aesthetic. Their bags seem to roam freely between minimalist and intricate, taking a pit stop at every level in between. Since “brand cohesion” is probably only something that obtuse fashion people (like moi) ever think/care about, it doesn’t necessarily seem to be a bad thing – it certainly brings them attention from a wide swath of stylish girls and women.

We have a combo on our hands. A pairing together from the Miu Miu Black Lambskin Tote and the Miu Miu Studded Leather Clutch brings us the Miu Miu Studded Shoulder Bag. And what do we think of this shoulder bag?

Ombré is, admittedly, a really difficult thing to pull off. It has to be the correct color transition, done in the correct shades, and with the correct depth of color. I’m not sure why the good people at Miu Miu thought that this would be a good thing to try and do with giant sequins on a tiny bag, then, but I can tell you that the Miu Miu Ombré Paillette-Embellished Clutch does not work out as well as they probably intended.

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.

Net A Porter brings us some of their favorite handbags of the season. This group of three is a fashionable trio showing Miu Miu, Fendi and Lanvin. Our personal favorite is the Lanvin bag, with perfect gold stamped-python metallic leather.

I have always had a thing for Miu Miu. Call it a crush or maybe something stronger. To this day I do not own a Miu Miu bag, but I always seem to find one that I like.

I’m on the fence in the battle between gold and silver hardware on black bags. On the one hand, I really like industrial-inspired style (as I’ve said about 6,904 times in the past month) and silver hardware (and lots of it) is basically the only way to go to achieve that look.

When I first laid eyes on this new Miu Miu bag I loved it. And then I kept looking at it and thinking to myself, this bag is oddly familiar. There is another brand who designed a handbag before this Miu Miu bag that other than some finishing touches, looks like they are related.

I love that studs will be seen on many handbags for fall and winter. This is a trend that when done right gives that perfect touch, a bit of a rocker edge. I have been attempting to figure out my studded bag purchase for fall, not even sure where I am leaning right now.

I have no idea why they have called this a messenger bag when it is clearly an oversized clutch with an optional shoulder strap. Nevertheless, here is the Miu Miu Quilted Suede Messenger Bag which is clearly getting fall on our minds.
