Miu Miu Cutout Bowling Bag
I’m a fan of bowler style handbags and I truly admire Miu Miu but why don’t I like this bag? The Cutout Bowling Bag is its name and I don’t absolutely hate it, but you sure wont find this listed on my wish list, either. I always find Miu Miu handbags to be luxurious, sporting rich leathers in fun silhouettes. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel this bowler lacks all of the above. Lack of smooshy Miu Miu leather and the limited amount of shiny hardware keep me from finding interest in this piece. As for the cutouts, I find them to be a bit awkward. Yes, I can see how it gives the bowler character, but for now, I’ll leave cutouts OUT of my bags. $1,430 is what the price tag reads, and that itself really isn’t convincing enough. I can name a couple of Miu Miu bags worth that price, but I can’t see myself splurging on this one. Maybe it’s the neutral-toned hues that don’t allow this bag to stand out as much. Do you think a splash of color would have bettered this bag? Or do you dig the retro feeling of this piece?
