Spring/Summer 2012 brings a brand new offering from Miu Miu, and i am elated to claim it erases the new memory of my bucket bag trauma! We already know the emblem has an ongoing romance with girlish pleats and folds (Kelly was just charmed by their neatly pleated lace clutch), but now their ruching seems to have grown up. These pleats have polish.
The top-handled Plongé boasts sophisticated, Prada-like structure, however it doesn’t lack in pure Miu Miu whimsy – this bag often is the middle sister within the family. a sensible, rectangular shape is softened with a “ruched thread” finish, by which five hand-stitched cotton threads are gathered to create that bold drape.
With a convenient, removable shoulder strap, the Plongé is out to possess the summer: it is available in ten different colors, from a soft, muted palette to a trio of garden brights (I’m all concerning the peonia) and two textures, gleaming vitello or soft nappa. Available at Miu Miu for $1,150.
