The body of the bag is crafted in matelassé leather. By now synonymous with the Miu Miu name, the highly distinctive, rich texture of the skin combines sophisticated craftsmanship with innovation: panels of leather are paired with wadding and elastic cloth and then quilted. Although approximately 60 per cent more leather goes into the making of a matelassé bag it remains light: luxurious. In a similar vein, its unique artisanal finish is rivalled only by the malleability of the skin that stretches, adapting to any contents.
The Miu Belle is further characterised by its polished metal frame and glossy black clasp which represent the perfect synthesis of glittering modernity and charmed nostalgia. Referencing jewellery, it is at once feminine and strong, purposeful and playful, its smooth, hard surface in direct contrast to the pleated skin.
The Miu Belle bag comes in a variety of seasonal and classic colours. The larger size has a tubular leather handle and detachable shoulder strap, a smaller pochette version may be hand held or worn on the shoulder via a tubular chain strap. As comfortable as it is aesthetically pleasing the Miu Belle is the perfect embodiment of a proudly individual sense of style designed to enhance both the appearance and well-being of the woman carrying it.
