Miu Miu Leather-Trimmed Raffia Satchel, $1450 via NAP
Over the weekend we started with windy, rainy, chilly weather and ended with sunshine and temperatures reaching the mid 70s. I won’t complain because that warmth is just what I was needing, but I must admit Mother Nature is confusing me. However, with the arrival of spring and summer, raffia reappears.
When I first spotted the Miu Miu Leather Trimmed Raffia Satchel on Net-A-Porter, I immediately thought to myself ‘I would never splurge on a raffia bag’. But then I remembered that I indeed have bought a designer raffia bag from Balenciaga and I adore it.
The wearability factor goes down tremendously when thinking about buying a seasonal piece such as this and truth be told, many are not fans of the scratchy look and feel raffia gives. On this Miu Miu bag, it is not my favorite either, but when it comes to my Balenciaga bag I really love it as a fun summer bag. Buy the Miu Miu bag via NAP for $1,450.
So, would you buy a raffia bag and if so, how much would you spend on one?
