Miu Miu Spring 2012 Accessories

Posted on January 03, 2012

Darlings, we were going to play Pretend Stylist with these accessories but the aesthetic of Miu Miu is just a bit too much for most starlets to pull off, so we can’t actually see too many of them being so risky as to sport a lot of these pieces. We’ll tell you what: half the Country Music Awards red carpet should by all rights be fighting over those floral boots, but alas, we fear even our country sisters don’t have the ovaries to risk it. We think those white boots with the red roses should be hand delivered to Dolly Parton by Miuccia Prada personally, but the world rarely conforms to our expectations, so we’re not holding our breath on that one.

So if we can’t imagine many celebrities taking a chance on these looks, we turn the question out to you, our Bitter Kittens: Which of these items would you snatch up if you got half the chance? Don’t be shy. Go a little bold. Who cares if you don’t have anywhere to wear white booties with gold roses on them?

    Not a fan of the boots, but LOVE most of the bags — except #s 11 and 13, which look like they have little vulvas on them.

    The way those roses are done incites my trypophobia, so none of those… several of the pink and patterned handbags could hit the town with me in SF.  I’d take the velvet pink fifth from the bottom with my LBD/sheath, wide black belt with pink and red flower pattern, and my red suede platforms on a night of gallery openings.

  • MilaXX

    I’d wear the white/gold or the greys boots. The bags are a bit easier, given the right outfit I’d carry any of them except that second bag.
    I can see a lot of R & B or hip hop stars wearing these boot. MJB springs to mind.

    I’d take all the boots, except for the ones that appear to have an open toe.  The handbags are pretty, but I tend toward the practical side with regard to that particular accessory, so I’d pass on those (except for the yellow/black/red–it’s too good to pass up.)

      I agree.  That first pair of boots?  To die.  And while I am definitely more of a large purse girl, I can think of a few occasions that I could get away with a couple of these tiny bags.

        And I like the fact that the heels don’t put these in the stilts category.  These are some awesome boots!

    The first boots remind me of those print rain boots you see young women and girls wearing.

    If I were young and filthy rich, I’d wear the white boots with red roses without a second thought.  The tall ones, not the short toeless ones.  Toeless boots: one of my most profound fashion hates.

    • Anonymous

      I don’t think they are toeless, those short boots. I think the toes are white and don’t show up against the background. The third colorway, the dark ones, show the nice pointy toe.

        Oh, for pete’s sake!  Rrroza, thank you!  I adjusted the angle on my monitor and suddenly–boot toes!  I have to say that whoever decided to photograph a white boot against a white background really needs to go back to photo school.

    That first pair of boots is the definition of awesome. I snatch them up so fast you wouldn’t even see me move. I also really like the last bag, but everything pales in comparison to the boots.

  • Sara__B

    The silhouettes are quite Victorian, and I like them — except for the open-toed boots (isn’t that an oxymoron?). I’m sure at least a few celebrities will like them, too.

    • http://onebluetree.blogspot.com/ Sara L.

      Exactly what I thought! Like Mary Poppins should be wearing them. And I mean that in a good way. Love the grey ones with the white roses. And I want several of the bags, the purple velvet one, the one with the butterflies, and a couple of others. Nice stuff.

      • Sara__B

        Yes! Mary Poppins would loved these boots and bags, and worn them on one of her magical adventures, only to stoutly deny it ever after.

    These boots and bags make me smile. For me that is a plus in fashion.

    Oh, except for the bags with the smocked satin YIKES. I have a phobia of smocked satin that is even worse than my phobia of holes . . . like the Surinam toad’s back which I will spare you a link to since that’s where my damn phobia came from.

    the only things i really like are the hard clasp bags, but the three i’d actually spend monopoly money on are the purple velvet, the sparkly pink just under it, and the larger pink and red one with rosettes (y’all were obviously right about that color combo’s moment).

    God help me, I love the boots and booties. If I were a celebrity, I’d wear tame outfits and shoes like these.

    Not quite as in love with all the purses. My favorites are the fifth and ninth purses. The last bag is pretty nice, too. I like the fabric more than the design on that one. I like the design and pleating of the pink velvet and yellow satin ones, but I’m not digging the colors.

      (except for the toeless ones. That trend needs to drop dead RIGHT NOW)


      Honestly, I’ve seen fleece-lined open-toed boots.  How does that make any sense whatsoever?  (Yes, I know that fashion doesn’t always make sense, but still .  .  .)

    If I had money to burn and an incredibly stylish wardrobe, I’d wear the short red booties. They’d be great with the right skirt.

    I wish there was some scale on those bags. Some of them would be great depending on size.

  • Anonymous

    I’m in almost complete agreement with Anathema–celebrity or not I’d wear any of those boots (of course I’d need to be 50 lb lighter, and at least 40 years younger) and I move to  Texas (New Mexico, Arizona) and go boot scootin’ every night. The bags–none of them floated my boat.

    If I were 40 years younger, I’d want the first pair of boots, which are wonderfully crazy and mindblowing.  The other boots have too careful an aesthetic for me.  Ditto all of the purses.

  • mrspeel2

    If I had the spare change to buy one of each, I’d pack them away very carefully and in about 25 years I’d ask Sotheby’s to auction them off for me. I’d be willing to bet I’d make back three times what I spent in the first place! But alas, it’s only a dream and therefore, I can’t, I shan’t and I won’t. Darn it.

    If I *could* wear heels, I’d go for boots #1 (though wish the animal were something different (honey badger?) and #4. The purses don’t thrill me, tho the last one is a cool looking object. Wish there were boots in that blue colorway.

    These are far from my usual taste but the tooled leather boots are beautiful. I covet them knowing I probably wouldn’t have worn something so girly even back when I wore the occasional bold piece.

    I am shocked by how well the boldly patterned purses work. (Though, they’d be SO MUCH nicer if Miu Miu didn’t have to slap their name on them.) Maybe I can see them positively because the boots prepared me with a mental image of the gal who’d rock these. (And there are plenty of those gals.) 

    With a lower, stacked heel, I see these (or, their still-pricey knock-offs) being nearly a uniform amongst a certain element of Austin’s night life.  Even as shown, I am sure I’ll be seeing some of these on some of my town’s well-to-do and well-maintained matrons-under-40 (or fighting to make the claim believable) as well as on some of the younger set. If the red carpet starlets aren’t up to it they need to up their iron supplements. Or red meat consumption.

    And the leather purses will be taken up by many who can’t go all the way to the boots. Though most of the cloth bags don’t have a wow factor for me. They fit nicely into the “unappealing but temporarily seen-everywhere status purse, responsible for thousands of uglier knock-offs” category. The gathered ones bring coffin linings to mind.

    The three dimensional rosettes are throwing me off, they looks like a mini vag, in a Georgia O Keefe kind of way. Having lived in Houston, I think ladies from Texas would love this collection.The Western vibe is great, I would rock the second and 11th purses myself.

    The second pair of boots in with the Yellow Rose of Texas or in those beautiful neutrals instead of the red would be perfect for Jewel or Sandra Bullock to get their Texan on.

    I want to wear the high black & gray boots (third pair) with my black cashmere dress knee length dress. Very chic. I am kinda’ puzzled by the references to Nicki Minaj – I don’t see them as tacky or her over-the-top style at all. I see them as a visual interest counterpoint to a blank canvas-type of dress or skirt.  If stupid starlets will stop wearing micro-mini cocktail dresses and strappy sandals in the middle of the New York winter! then they would see that there are boots and coats aga-ga that would make them look both fashionable and sane.
    And I’ll take one of each of the bags. Esp. the pink velvet one. yum!

    This stuff is less literal than the Prada hot rod embellishments, which I loved, but I think I like these designs better.  I love the leather bags with the flames crawling up the middle.   I think those are the ones someone referred to as “vulva purses” or something like that.

    I’m always a little confused when people rail against designs that look like ladyparts, or frame the ladyparts, or whatever.  I mean, what’s wrong with ladyparts?
