Miu Miu Brushed Suede Tote in Yellow
Yellow is one of those slightly unexpected colour trends for winter 2012/2013, particularly when it's got a hint of gold to it or even an all-over metallic shimmer like the deep oily tones of Philip Lim's Pashli satchel. Miu Miu's brushed suede tote, pictured here tones down that same mid-gold yellow in a matte finish and the result is a really beautiful accessory that works surprisingly well with its contrasting silver hardware.
The turn-lock closures gleam beautifully in the light, looking from a distance a little like the silver gemstones that are a key feature of many Miu Miu accessory pieces. A clip-on strap adds extra practicality, while its flared, concertina bottom creates neat, adjustable space whether you're carrying a sneaky change of clothes or just the barest essentials. This is a chic, smart piece that has a cheery nature alongside its more serious duties.
