Miu Miu Leopard-Print Calf Hair & Python Satchel: Combo Platter

Show me a bag that’s quintessentially Miu Miu and I’ll show you a bag that exudes quirk and glamour in equal measure, thanks to an unfailing way with wacky combinations that somehow work.

Proenza Schouler Striped Medium Shoulder Bag: The High Line

Say hello to stripes done right. Proenza Schouler is a label that’s never shy about experimenting with unapologetic and unexpected mélanges of textures, elements, and references.
