First glance, I thought this bag was a great shape. Slouchy leather, with a detachable shoulder strap makes a perfect messenger bag, right? Wrong. Vlad looks at this bag and says “Is it uni-sex?”. There lies the problem. The Miu Miu Antiqued Leather Handbag is a perfect shaped everyday messenger bag but is manly and burly. Look like a man on a mission to go do something manly, say chug a beer, not shave your beard, walk in 4 inches of mud and not care, or get smashed watching football if you carry this bag. The mere fact that Vlad thinks he could carry it too turns me away from its brown antiqued leather. Hand-held or across the body this bag screams out masculine, and unless that is what you are going for, I wouldn’t spend a penny on it. Buy it through Net A Porter for $1385 for a man.
When you have a hit, keep riding the wave. Miu Miu hit big time with the highly coveted Coffer and for Spring/Summer 2007 Miu Miu has released the fraternal twin. Ohh and ahh at the Miu Miu Quilted Linen Hobo like I am doing. A perfect tint of metallic gold is splashed on the braided top handle, detachable body strap, and other slight trimming. I said it with the Coffer and I’ll say it with the Linen rendition, this is a sure to be hit and one of the most amazing and fun designs out there. The ruched linen body has a top flap, gold hardware, and front pockets. I can not stop drooling over this perfect sized hobo, 12″H X 15″L X 2Â½”W. Get your hands on one at Saks for $1155.
While most of the country and world are in heaps upon heaps of snow, I have been enjoying crisp and perfect 80 degree weather in South Florida. Don’t think I am rubbing it in, because I am merely here to heal my broken arm that I got while in the bitter cold; so I definitely feel your pain! Why don’t we all get on the same page and begin lusting after spring and summer bags. Nothing says warm weather like a tinge of green alongside a burlap body, like found in the Miu Miu Burlap Leather Drawstring Satchel. This bag is simple but lovely for the warm weather and completely durable for extensive everyday wear. The shoulder strap also sports the caribou leather with gold tone hardware. Simple but perfectly fun, measuring 14″H X 16″L X 5″W this bag is available via Saks for $795.
