There was a time when everyone had to own--or at the very least, they lusted after--some piece of the Miu Miu Matelessé line. I wasn't immune to it; I loved the dimensionality the quilting technique yielded, which left the bags appearing padded. Miu Miu always delivers when it comes to offering a wide variety of bags that provide a fun, youthful twist.
Enter the Miu Mega Bag: it was featured on the Spring 2017 runway and is a major part of the Miu Miu Spring 2017 campaign, this bag makes a playful statement--the Mega name surely denotes the oversized matelessé on both the body of the bag and the handle. While I wouldn't carry this bag every day, I would carry for nights out or during the day when I don't need a ton of items. (That would have to be sans baby.) You all know how much I love a nice, simple outfit, and that is why a bag that stands out more always finds a way to work into my wardrobe.
There are a few colors offered, including black, pink, red and white, and I love both the black and pink. We had the bags sent to us to try them out so I could share their details with you, and I always think being able to see the bag on someone gives you a great idea of how it can work. The Mega is for sure a fashion statement--as is the coat in the photos, which is also Miu Miu--but I love the way it stands out without being too crazy. Our new team member Kaitlin (we'll have her do a proper introduction soon!) played with the bag so you can see what it looks like being carried. Dimensions are 10.6" x 7.1" x 51", and Kaitlin is tall like me, 5'9 to be exact, to give you some size perspective!
Another cool thing about this bag is the braided nappa leather handle can be removed, so you can use it as a clutch. I love a good statement clutch, and this one is large enough to actually carry things while still functioning as a clutch quite well. The interior offers one compartment and one zipped patch pocket. I really kind of love this bag, and seeing it in person made it come to life and had me loving it even more. After seeing this bag, I feel like matelessé needs to make a comeback. Buy via Miu Miu for $1,970.
