EXCLUSIVE: Miu Miu Invades New York Fashion Week With a Special One-Off Bag Collection and Valentine's Day Fete

New York Fashion Week is usually deprived of anything Miu Miu (the brand shows in Paris). But not this week. We had a hint Miu Miu was up to something in our fair city when we heard about a party they were throwing on Valentine's Day cryptically called "The Woman Dress." We hear that the party has something to do with a premiere for the next installment of “Miu Miu Women’s Tales Saga,” the brand's film series that explores “the feminine love affair with Miu Miu.” But Miu Miu hearts NY in more ways than one this week.

Aside from the V-day fete, Miu Miu is launching a limited edition collection of 46 bags which will be unveiled in each of the major fashion capitals during their respective fashion weeks. Each bag is unique and hand made with 17 different material combinations using 12 different processing techniques. Crocodile, ostrich, teju and python are mixed with lurex jacquard, patch brocade, linen and, of course, glitter. You can see all 16 New York bags in this mesmerizing bag-porn gif Miu Miu has created.
