CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR BLOOMIE’S: Prada and Miu Miu handbags, which have never been carried by Bloomingdale’s, are getting their own homes at the 59th Street flagship. Two in-store shops are currently under construction in Bloomingdale’s designer handbag department on the Lexington Avenue side, and while Prada and Miu Miu executives are mum about details, both major shops are expected to be fully operational in time for the Christmas rush. Bloomingdale’s entire handbag department is undergoing a makeover, and Prada and Miu Miu bags will join such mainstays as Chanel, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Ferragamo and Louis Vuitton on the designer floor. Francine Klein, executive vice president and general merchandise manager at Bloomingdale’s, was unavailable for comment Tuesday about the additions.
