Who says our bags can’t be friendly and snuggly? Usually, I’m not a huge fan of fuzzy-fur bags that are extravagantly tactile, unless the shearling is cropped short and neat. But Miu Miu’s fluffy blush and cream Coffer bag reminds me of my puppy and I have a strong urge to cuddle it.
Now blending the notion of cute pets and designer bags wouldn’t normally make for a chic combination, so why is this shaggy satchel a success? Because Miu Miu has the good sense to keep it playful. At a petite and super-cute 10”-wide, this flashes just enough shearling to keep its sense of humor. Archetypal Miuccia details like a braided, stitch-trimmed top-handle and bold gold hardware, plus an optional shoulder strap for more casual cross-body action, punctuate all that volume; panels of mauve suede act as the foundation and ground the furry shearling. The details save the day – there is nothing worse than a giant Sesame Street character-turned-bag that takes itself too seriously and costs five figures. Carry this winter pick-me-up when you’re feeling equally frisky, and nestle up to it when you sit it down next to you. On Net-a-Porter for $1,350.
Pair with: Keep the rest of your look sharp and spunky. A pleated tweed skirt by Theory is a wardrobe classic; this gray-and-black box-pleat makes for a streamlined mini that will welcome a cuddly carryall. At Bergdorf Goodman for $235.
