Mugler is a handbag designer that I am not all that familiar with. I honestly can’t think of any of their other handbag styles. Which is surprising because according to their biography, Thierry Mugler has been around since 1974. Apparently, the designer is more well-known for his couture clothing. A quick Google search yielded some interesting images from their fashion shows, which are not my style. Actually, far from my style. However after seeing this super fringe bag that has allowed me to get past all that. In fact, I cannot stop staring at this bag! What do you guys think of the Thierry Mugler Super Fringe Slim Half-Moon Leather Bag?
When I say fringe, I am not fooling around. This bag has some impressive Cousin It- inspired fringe. Those strands are almost two feet long- l-i-t-e-r-a-l-l-y! It is amazing to me how an otherwise simple design can take on such a dramatic look. I do like the slim half-moon bag style itself. The rod along the top also gives this piece some rigidity, which I suppose is important if you want to keep that perfect arc of fringe. This is because it helps support and evenly distribute the weight. While I do love the look, I just don’t see this as a highly practical everyday bag. However I do see it as a great statement piece, something Mary-Kate Olsen I’m sure would approve of. I think it would showcase nicely with a simple black dress.
