It's true that designers get inspiration from everywhere. Here, we have Miu Miu's supple and durable nappa leather made into what looks like the surface of an old roof. Someone thought it a good idea to paint over a small piece of roof shingles with glossy purple paint and throw some handles on it to make a bag. Sure, it's a great color, and rather interesting too, with two handy side pockets and a classic tote shape. But I think designs inspired by ancient roof shingles should be restricted to ancient architecture or art. Well, that's just me. Some may feel that this bag IS a form of art.
