Majority of brands have an identifier in its brand DNA that signifies an item as inherently theirs. For Miu Miu, it has always been its distinctive matelassé leather. Miu Miu perfected its use of this design over time, which combines rich texture and impeccable craftsmanship with each panel of quilted leather coming together seamlessly.

The manner in which each bag with this treatment is made is no small feat: panels of leather are paired with wadding and elastic cloth and then they are quilted to give the multi-dimensional finish. The leather is incredibly supple and stretches easily, which allows the bag to expand to fit more than you’d think.

By now matelassé leather is synonymous with the Miu Miu name and for this Fall/Winter 2020 season, the Miu Belle line of bags features this iconic House style on a festive and fun metal framed bag. The Miu Miu girl is fashion-forward yet playful and the Miu Belle embodies the exact person who would immediately love this bag. There’s a touch of modernity to this line but the Belle feels like the old bag friend you have always loved and just caught up with. The bag is feminine and strong, a combination that is hard to get right on a bag but Miu Miu found that balance. The soft leather pairs ideally with the shiny polished gold metal frame and glossy black clasp. The combination of the supple, pleated leather against the structured frame is no accident, it is a purposeful design element that truly gives the bag a modern yet nostalgic combination.

The Miu Belle possesses every Miu Miu element that first drew me to the brand, only better. There are three sizes, the larger size features tubular leather handles and a detachable shoulder strap which makes this bag more versatile. The drop on the leather top handles isn’t large enough to allow the bag to fit over my shoulder, but you can carry it by hand or in the crux of your arm. The interior opens quite wide to allow for expansion and inclusion of the items you need for daily wear and there is a small open pocket.

The medium size of the Miu Belle is still large enough for the biggest iPhone and the rest of your essentials. This version offers a removable chain shoulder strap that is reminiscent of nice jewelry or you can carry the bag as a clutch, which as we all know is still having a major moment. The metal frame makes for easy clutch-style carrying. There are a few colorways available and this is a bag that will be the finishing touch on top of any outfit.

Lastly there is a Mini size, which can be worn crossbody or over the shoulder with the removable chain shoulder strap or you can carry it as a tiny coin-like pouch. As much as I love the matelassé motif on the larger bags, on the smaller it is condensed and highlighted even more drastically, and that’s a good thing. Each bag has the Miu Miu logo in tonal metal leather.

The Miu Belle is that special bag that will work in your wardrobe from outfit to outfit, transforming your look and giving that finishing touch that shows your sense of style is whimsical, fashionable, individual, and shows you know how to have fun. If you’re more casual like me, the Belle dresses up denim and top ensembles, but the Belle also easily takes an already dressy outfit to the next level by offering a statement closing piece. For the holidays, this is a bag to gift yourself or someone you love who has always been a designer bag aficionado and appreciates quilted leather, because after all, Miu Miu creates the best quilted leather bags in the designer bag world.

So cute and ladylike. I don’t know if this is the time for a bag like this though. I can’t imagine wearing a ladylike bag in the current conditions.

To me it looks similar to the Marc Jacobs Stam, which can be purchased new on the secondary market, for under $500. Or, the Miu Miu is $3,100…decisions, decisions.

THIS! I just paid 250 for a still-tagged, unused large Stam, why pay 3 blocks for this one????? Make it make sense, Miuccia!

My mom had a great looking bag in silver that was much larger and looked almost the same as this. It was encrusted in stones and looked very chic. I hope Miu Miu makes one like that someday.

Pretty bag but the top handles need to be just a little smaller. They stick up awkwardly high.

The bag is pretty dated looking. It is also pretty expensive for a pretty much machine sewn bag. Meh

I love the clutch version of the Belle and, IMO, it beats the BV pouch hands down. The Belle clutch in emerald is such a rich green, a great accent color. Not sure I need another clutch, but if I go for one, this would be high on my list.
