Miu Miu: unmistakably matelassé




By now it is almost an equation: matelassé equals Miu Miu, Miu Miu equals matelassé. An iconic workmanship and a cross-collection, cross-seasonal fashion trend that blends the lightness of modern style with artisanal leatherworking techniques. The quilted texture, which generally resembles a diamond pattern, experimented by designers on accessories, dresses, outerwear, and footwear, is proposed with its unmistakable design on several models of the brand founded in 1993 by Miuccia Prada, embracing the newest models and, of course, the great classics signed Miu Miu.


The fine workmanship, combined with the softness of the calfskin nappa leather from which the bags are made (but there are also delightful velvet versions), help give them a textured and extremely sophisticated look that is concrete and impactful, yet soft and delicate at the same time. To achieve this requires technique and precision: through the use of specific machinery and processing, the leather is stitched to create a specific texture, resulting in a three-dimensional effect that has become iconic.


Nearly every Miu Miu bag has its own matelassé version, from wrist clutches to micro bags, from shoppers to the brand's iconic models, such as the Arcadie satchel and the historic Wander hobo, reinterpreted season after season. The Miu Miu logo stands out perfectly on the pattern, elevating the glam spirit of these creations declined in different shades, including sand, caramel and in the two classics par excellence, black and white. Basic colors, contemporary lines and timeless style: these are the ingredients for a series of accessories capable of perfectly balancing casual character and elegant attitude.
