Miu Miu Pelouch Faux Fur Shoulder Bag, $1250 via Net-a-Porter.
We all know how I feel about fur bags, but sometimes a fur design is so deranged that it loops back around to awesome, and those bags need to be embraced and celebrated in all of their insane glory. With purple leather trim and fake fur dyed so unevenly that it looks like it was aggressively rubbed against a brand new pair of orange jeans, the Miu Miu Pelouche Faux Fur Shoulder Bag is perhaps the reigning poster child for this phenomenon.
And when I say “embraced and celebrated,” I don’t mean bought. Quite the contrary; it’s best to gaze upon these bags from a safe distance and marvel at the limitless cojones of whoever designed them. If you get too close, you might get some of the crazy on you. Miu Miu’s bags are rarely as notable as its shoes, but this is certainly one way to get us all to sit up and take notice. Although I can’t help but think that this bag is like a college coed with daddy issues – it doesn’t know the difference between negative and positive attention. Next thing you know, it’ll be making out with its roommate at a bar. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1250.
