Miu Miu Taipei 101

Following her Harlequin bags, Miu Miu is furthering the clown theme by creating a limited collection of hand-painted leather bags for the spring opening of the Miu Miu store in Taipei, Taiwan. Only 50 bags will be made, all of them featuring an intricate painting of a woman surrounded and covered by harlequin diamonds. Each bag comes with two packets of hand-painted illustrations, and a special purple plaque in each bag commemorates this edition of the bag.

If you're in the area, try to swing by and see if you can get your hands on one. I'm sure that this will be VERY popular in the Asian market.

UPDATE: Illustrations are by an artist named Liselotte Watkins. See her work here.
