I went to the Miu Miu store today to have a look at the bow satchel. Initially, I prefered black but after looking at it I'm not so keen now as the leather didnt look/feel soft or luxurious at all. Unlike the one that evilarchitect has that looks so soft and buttery. see here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260154733068 The one I saw at the boutique today looks like this: http://forum.purseblog.com/prada-and-miu-miu/should-i-get-black-miu-miu-bow-satchel-178807.html So now I'm at a loss. I really don like this leather.
