Miu Miu Oversized Satin Clutch

Yesterday temperatures reached a balmy 100 degrees here with humidity that made stepping outside feel like stepping into a sauna. Then from the wee hours of the morning until a few hours ago I was reminded that Hurricane season has begun as the storm that hit knocked out power for hours and took down internet. Nevertheless we are back up!

I was having a Déjà vu this morning when I popped onto Net A Porter. There sat a cute oversized clutch, which showed a bit of gathering in an otherwise simple yet likable design. And then it occurred to me that while this clutch said it was made by Miu Miu I have seen a nearly identical design from Prada. It should be no major surprise, as Miu Miu and Prada are sister brands. But why pay a bit more for Prada when you can have Miu Miu? I suppose it all comes down to the name.

The Miu Miu Oversized Satin Clutch is the clutch I am referring to that has reminded me much of the Prada Raso Silver Clutch, not an exact copy but very similar. It is not shocking that this would happen, but why pay for Prada when a very similar Miu Miu is nearly $250 less. There are slight differences, as the Miu Miu clutch gathers at the top center of the clutch, giving a slight bow effect to the shape of the bag. Satin is not an ideal material for a handbag, but in a clutch which is not meant to be worn daily, it gives off a beautiful sheen of elegance. The violet satin is a great color choice, as it easily will give a slight hue of color without being hard to match. I adore this clutch. I don’t have use for it, nor did I for its Prada counterpart, but it is a great evening bag option when you want to dress it up a bit. Buy through Net A Porter for $450.
