Dumpster Chic: Miu Miu’s worn-look handbag

You know, you can call us crazy, but we’d much prefer it if our new $677 designer handbag DIDN’T look like someone just pulled it out of a dumpster.  You?

Of course, they do say the lived-in look can have a charm all of its own, and this Miu Miu bag certainly looks “lived in”. Or maybe “well loved” would be a kinder expression?

Whatever you want to call it, what we want to know is whether you’d actually buy it. Is $677 too much for a worn-out old bag (even one that’s actually brand spanking new), or are you heading over to Yoox.com right now to snap it up?

    I did head over to Yoox to zoom in on that bit on the bottom left of the bag: yes, it is a particularly raggy bit of material that looks like it’s about to turn into a hole.

    Unbelievably, it’s sold out – presumably bought by the same people who wear those Comme des Garcons tramp clothes.

    Why not just shop at the thrift store instead? It never fails to surprise me what people will spend for fashion, when they could get the same look so much cheaper….

    It just worries me that people are becoming more stupid by the minute.

    For me the design is okay. the materials that are used looks high quality. So the price is just right for that bag.
