Miu Miu Les Exceptionnels: Luxury with a sense of irony
An artful holiday collection that introduces beauty in imperfection

With Miuccia Prada, one can never expect beauty served straight up on a silver platter. Much prefering idiosyncratic, subversive designs that capture attention with novelty, Miu Miu's latest accessories collection — suitably titled Les Exceptionnels — is a perfect example of just that. 

As a festive toast to the brand's iconic shoulder bags, top handles and matelessé design, these classic silhouettes have been liberally sprinkled with jewels and baubles to ring in the holidays. Floral nappa crystals and madras are irregularly appliquéd to matelessé leather and glazed snakeskin alike, injecting an air of insouciance that contrasts the audaciously ornate aesthetic. Textures are dichotomised: Leopard printed pony hair sit alongside baby pink leather forming one of many eccentricities we love from the collection. 

For the girl that hardly takes herself too seriously, explore Miu Miu's Les Exceptionnels below and get dolled up for Christmas with a sense of irony as your key accessory.
