Miu Miu Introduces the My Miu Bag

First seen in March on the Miu Miu runway in Paris, the My Miu bag marks the first occasion in which the name of the brand features prominently both patched in psychedelic lettering and in the form of a large polished gold or palladium lock.

Star accessory of the new season, with its glittering fringes and jeweled buckles, the My Miu combines a respect for handcraftsmanship and the finest fabrications with a sense of femininity, irreverence and fun.

The My Miu show model is the most elaborate, presented in five different and highly distinctive combinations of precious materials: madras leather patched with python; python or ayers embellished with jewelled fringing; python or ayers finished with a jewelled buckle; matelassé leather with a python belt and jewelled buckle and fluffy fur with an ayers belt and jewelled buckle.

Colours range from classic – natural snake, black – to pop bright and pastel and, often, a juxtaposition of the three. All bags feature a removable and adjustable python or ayers strap allowing them to be carried cross body, on the shoulder or as a clutch.

The My Miu is also available in a slightly smaller size and fabricated to suit every occasion. Classic madras and ayers, matelassé and ayers and velvet and ayers bags come with a metal chain strap. The denim interpretation features a sporty nylon strap.

Completing the range, the mini My Miu is the simplest and most accessible version of the style. Light, easy and effortlessly elegant, it is crafted in signature matelassé leather and textile in a wide range of colours with a metal chain strap.

Day 18: The Berline Bag by Hermès


Dear Santa, I have been a very good girl, so please bring me the BERLINE MINI BAG by Hermès, it is totally my object of desire! And probably yours now, too!

Hermes_PE12_02BERLINE BAG by Hermès

Introduced for F/W 2012, the original Berline Bag is available in the size 28 (28x21x9 cm). While it takes on a new colour for S/S 2013, vermillon red, its features, inspired from the Kelly bag and the automobile universe, pay tribute to the house’s unique saddler-stuffer know-how.

Berline Bag Veau Swift – CHF 6600.-



For the S/S 2013 season, it will be available for the first time as a miniature version in the size 21 (21x17x6 cm). This little sister of the Berline bag showcases Hermès’ saddler-padding know-how with its cushioned leather sections. Although its strap is thinner and longer for relaxed crossbody wear, its clasp and snap hooks take a strong stand in retaining their original size. Available in six colours, with matching strap.

Prada’s S/S 2011 Bags and an Idea

S 2011 Bags

110225X4The new S/S 2011 Prada bags are just pretty. Uma Thurman was recently spotted sporting her favourite woven model while leaving a restaurant in Los Angeles.


If you can’t decide which one is your prefered one, you might consider getting two. If you do, I have a great idea for you. Switch the straps to get a version that no one has. Here is what I did with my new bags:

Like this, you create a unique piece which will be hard to copy and you don’t need to buy anything new to do that. Look into your closet and start swapping! You will have a new bag in seconds!

If you are in the mood for shopping, visit the Prada store nearest to you.

The Blue & The Grey


I love the colour combination of ink blue and teal with grey. Those shades just belong together. The outfit above proves my theory perfectly:
The gorgeous grey dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim (€305.-) and ink-blue belted long-length blazer by Elizabeth & James (€430.-) look stunning combined with teal accessories like the velvet ankle boots by Maison Martin Margiela (£455.-) and the cross-body bag by See by Chloé (€305.-).
For daily glamour add a statement necklace like the crystal-embellished one by 3.1. Phillip Lim (€590.-) and a cool leather bracelet by Chan Luu (€175.-).

Indigo eyeshadow by Givenchy (one of my favourites) and the OPI “Ski teal we drop” nail polish will top off your outfit amazingly!

Feeling blue can be fun!
