Miu Miu East-West Buckled Satchel



What an absolutely chic bag! Prada's little sister has done good with the East-West Satchel. The black deerskin leather version is the ideal companion for the modern sophisticate. The fold-over flap is slightly reminiscent of a Birkin, but different enough to fit into Miu Miu's "youthful elegance" aesthetic. The satchel has a top handle as well as an adjustable shoulder strap (which you can remove for a more classic look). The gold-tone hardware contrasts with the dark leather exterior and adds a luxurious vibe to the overall design. Buckled straps along the front of the bag provide a utilitarian feel to the satchel that's totally on-trend. The designers were smart to make the straps functional but in an easy way. You won't need to fiddle with the buckles at all. The straps open and close through small push-through studs. Genius! Nab the Miu Miu East-West Buckled Satchel for $1650 via bergdorfgoodman.com, and invest in a great bag you'll use for many years to come.

    I really like Miu Miu and actually admired this bag on the BG site yesterday. I knew you would like it too! Have you seen the Fendi Frame Satchel on the Nordstrom website. I am loving it and would love your thoughts :) Hope you and the family are healthy now. I have been battling an awful head cold/virus for a week now...

    The Fendi Frame Satchel is just OK for me. I think it's the "studs" along the top edges that re throwing me off. I do love the framed cut-out handles though. Gorgeous!!!

    Perhaps if the bag were larger (more n/s than e/w) it would look better.
