I have often referred to Miu Miu as Prada's hipper, younger sister line. It used to be true, with Miu Miu paving the way with cutting edge designs. The line has mellowed over the years, however, and it seems to be getting better with age. This Madras tote is a great example of their new, improved, and definitely more elegant style.
The textured red leather of the Madras tote is durable and won't show wear, which makes it totally practical. The orange-y red color is eye-catching, but it won't burn out your retinas. It's the perfect balance of pretty and practical. The shiny gold hardware is a classy, sophisticated touch, and I like how it is minimally-applied. In a world of handbags covered with bling, this is the kind of bag that makes a statement without screaming.
The shape of the Madras is totally classic. In fact, there's nothing that extraordinary about it at all. Until you open it up, that is. The Madras features a very cool three-way divider that will keep all your necessities and niceties organized and findable. This is crucial, and sadly lacking, in a lot of today's oversized bags. The dual strap options make it easy to hold by hand or to sling over your shoulder when it gets too full.
Usually, I have a lot of complaints about Miu Miu's high prices. But this Madras is worth its $1,595 price tag. It's practical, beautiful, and transcends the trends.
