Dolce & Gabbana’s multicolored patchwork snakeskin purse has emerged as one of the hottest handbags of the season, and now it looks like Miu Miu’s Nappa Patch Bowler is hot on its heels. This fall 2008 bag features a berry base with multicolored (gray, pink, black, etc.) nappa leather patches layered over it in a way that would make Mondrian proud. The sturdy bowler-style bag also features a black leather top handle and a detachable shoulder strap. It will be interesting to see if this baby can follow D&G’s lead and avoid the hippy-dippy patchwork stigma to become a fresh and modern it bag. Personally, I’m still on the fence. Available for $1,420 at BergdorfGoodman.com.
