As much as fringe handbags continue to come in style and then back in style, I am always sitting on the fence between strongly disliking them and having a slight bit of curiosity towards them. Sure, some designers are able to create a much more subdued fringe bag, while others are all about fringe coming from every orifice of the bag and dragging down to the floor. I prefer the first option: fringe within reason. And you know who may have created fringe within reason fairly well? Miu Miu.

After seeing the Miu Miu Leather Fringe Hobo Bag pop up on Monday at Net A Porter, a few of you expressed your love of the bag. To be honest it was not the first bag that caught my eye, but I took a second look and can understand the fascination with the bag.

This bag is sporting fringe, even more fringe than I typically prefer, but there is something about the neutral leather color and classic shape of the bag paired with the fringe that makes it work. The nude leather hobo is paired with gold-tone hardware. The fold-over flap and shape of the bag itself is very Miu Miu. Another added touch that I appreciate is the zip-pull pocket at the back of the bag.

And then there is the leather fringed trim. I can’t tell you exactly how long it is, but what I can tell you is the bag is a larger hobo bag (as seen on the model, and the fringe is not dainty whatsoever. There is also an optional long strap (also shown on the model) which I quite like. This is a statement bag that ties in a toned down color and body style with amped up fashion from the fringe detail. Buy via Net-A-Porter for $1,695.

    All that fringe looks too Medusa-like for me. Love the shape and hardware on the bag, but I could do without the fringe. I guess I’m more of a tassle person than a full-out fringe person.

  • Denise

    This bag is really cute!!

  • Kiki119

    I agree with you 100%
    the bag has cute shape – sans Fringe

  • Margaret

    Don’t mind the bag–don’t like the fringe. It’s too much! Looks great carried by the tall skinny model, but what about the rest of us? It will overpower!

  • Kellyx

    Don’t like it

  • Konceited

    Very Very Cute, Great Find

    This bag looks too puffy. Its like a massive entity next to the model. I think if you want fringe, which stands out by itself anyway, then you need to make the bag a little sleeker.

    • Jen

      I agree. The bag is way too big on the model, and the fringe only adds up to it. Not good.


    i want those SHOES!

    and you should email me really quick because i need to ask you something :D

    I love the shape, color and hardware on this bag. Just the fringe is a little bit tooo much.

  • Moonchild

    That bag is gorgeous! :-)
    It is a bit too pricey, but I still love it :-)

  • nobody

    I love it! It’s not apologizing for the fringe, it’s embracing it.

  • mochababe73

    I hope that they make the bag without the fringe. With the fringe reminds me of snuffaluffagus. Of course, I hate fringe so I may be a little biased.

  • Kathrin

    Love and bought it… :-) It is AMAZING!!!!!! (But the first rain unfortunately left water drops on it :-( )

    • LoveNatali

      Kathrin – me too!! What did you do about it?

  • LoveNatali

    I BOUGHT this one and I loveeeee it. I got it like 50% off though – I figured at that price, it would be worth it regardless of whether or not I liked it in a few months (but I think I will). Without all the stuffing – it’s actually not too overwhelming with the fringe and all. Besides, if you take out the fringe, it becomes the standard miu miu hobo bag!! :)
