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.

Stunning! Looks so versatile. Just wish it came with a removable crossbody strap. Would totally she’ll out big bucks for this. Is it lambskin?

I adore Miu Miu as a brand, but their handbags are awful. This just looks like a crinkled up garbage bag.

Thank you! I thought I was the only one who thought this bag is truly awful.

I like the look of it, but I’m not a fan of shoulder bags. 🙁

You can carry it as a clutch too!

I’m sure a clutch would look lovely, but I don’t really live a clutch lifestyle. ?

Is that you, Megs? If so, you look stunning! Love the new hair and the outfit. The bag isn’t really my style, but I love the rest of Miu Miu’s offerings.

Ah no, I’m still lucky if I get any of my pre-baby clothes on! That’s Kaitlin from our team!

Megs, please don’t put pressure on yourself on getting back to any of your pre-baby clothes. You’ve got so much more important things in your life right now. I think everyone here on the website supports and loves you no matter the size of your clothes.

Oh no worries – I don’t feel any pressure about it! I’m pretty laid back about my weight and once I got pregnant I focused on eating healthy for the baby and feeling well. I didn’t care about the scale much – and now am still just focused on eating well so I can feed her well!

Plus, my leggings are just fine and plenty comfortable ;). Thanks for the kind words, we ladies need to be kind to one another! So much pressure all the time to be everything for everyone

Nope, It looks like something the 100 year old Queen of England would carry…

I thought that this bag was made out of a puffy nylon. That would be a no.

I love it. Soft, unstructured quilted lambskin is my favourite.
