Designer Bags from A to Z
Archive for February, 2011

First, I just wanted to say that this bag is amazing. I love the details, the texture and color combination, and even the lack of hardware.  Combining three different materials (leather, canvas and python) really makes this bag stand out.  Moreover, the intricate design shows that the designer really put a lot of thought and creativity into this bag.  This one is definitely not just another standard looking boxy satchel.

This structured bag has somewhat of a preppy look. Even so, the color combination and the non existent hardware add to the bag softer appeal.  In my opinion, the color combination is just perfect for the spring and the python front pocket adds substantial elegance to the bag.  Just so you know, this bag doesn’t only look good from the front. It also look like a piece of art from the side.

If Hermes Birkin and Mulberry Bayswater were to get married and have a child together, it would probably look like this bag.  The first time I saw this bag, I was drawn by the looks of its smooshy leather. I was right, when I touched it, all I could feel is just smoothness all over.  Although the leather is somewhat thick, it is also supple.  The thickness of the leather gives the bag a little bit of a tough look.

The Mia satchel is easier to open and close compared to the cumbersome Hermes Birkin.  You can tuck the flap underneath the belt like strap or just leave it hanging over the belt.  Judging by the look of it, this bag can be pretty versatile.  You can easily wear it to work or on casual outings.

I checked the Liebeskind official website, I must admit that they have impressive collections.  Unfortunately, I can’t find many department stores or online stores that carry their bags (Amazon Germany carries several models). I wish they would make their bag more widely available especially since they have reasonable prices.

You can buy Mia satchel from Nordstrom for $354
