Miu Miu Valentine’s Day

Miu_Miu_Valentine's Day

Attention lovers! MIU MIU introduces a capsule collection especially for Valentine’s Day. The offering draws on the playful juxtaposition of different worlds.

Valentines Day Miu Miu

Miu Miu Cherry Bag

Cherries are the recurrent sweetly romantic motif of this quintessentially feminine collection, always coming, like lovers, in sparkling pairs and nestling on vivid green crystal leaves.

Heart Charm

Jewelled hearts also make an appearance and an exclusive logo – MIU MIUicon Loves – is applied to the madras leather styles.

Love Miu Miu

Purses suspended from palladium hardware, wallets, card holders, key chains and bag trinkets all feature in the colors of passion – black, ruby red and sugar pink – often with contrasting linings. Materials include madras and nappa leather with signature “cloqué” workmanship. Characteristically irreverent details finish each piece, among them more cherries, hearts and lettering in polished silver or brightest red enamel.

A piece of art: Gucci‘s Floral Knight Bamboo Shopper is definitely on my wish list. As I am already a huge fan of this line (check out this previous post here), I couldn’t have been more excited about this new printed version. Perfect for the next season.

Gucci Mini Bamboo Shoppers

Overly cute: these Mini Bamboo Shoppers iconare made from supple textured-leather and finished with a detachable strap. It’s the perfect size for your cell, makeup essentials and wallet. 
Did you know that Gucci’s iconic bamboo handles were originally created in 1947 using a patented method to heat and bend them into shape. (If you are interested, I would like to invite you to have a look at a previous post about my visit to the Gucci manufacture in Casellina, Italy).

Golden and pink aged leather card holder _Porte-cartes doré et rose en cuir vieilli

True to Chanel’s signature aesthetic, all pieces are covered in aged calfskin, the legacy of the iconic 2.55 bag, distinguished here by flat lozenge quilting. Available in metallic gold or silver tones with pastel-toned linings in white, dusty pink, grey and beige.

This generous range of sixteen pieces – each one as practical as it is desirable – will be available in Chanel boutiques from late September 2011.
