PRADA ROUNDED TOP HANDLE BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Prada-Rounded-Leather-Top-Handle-Bag

Prada is making rounds in the fashion world with its unique bags and accessories, but now life has come full circle for this Italian powerhouse. Introducing the Prada Rounded Leather Top Handle Bag, which looks spotlessly vogue and chic.

Sporting genuine calf leather that is perfectly matched with gold-plated hardware, this newest Prada bag is all about form and confidence. At first glance, one thing you’ll notice would be its unique rounded and curvy shape, thus no wonder it’s called a width bag. Also, the metal lettering logo on leather triangle is a giveaway that you’re wearing a Prada bag.

Another thing that will catch your attention would be its double leather handles, which kind of create a one-of-a-kind V shape making it easier to carry it by the hand. It also has a detachable adjustable leather shoulder strap for effortless shoulder and cross-body carrying. For an added sense of security, this bag is equipped with zipper closure to keep your things safe and sound.

Looking inside, it has two inside pockets, including one with zipper closure to keep your things organized. It measures 18 x 13 (L x H) cm and is priced €950 euro, £820 GBP via Prada boutiques.

Prada Shoulder Straps Collection

Categories:Other Brands

If your once-beloved Prada bag has been tucked away in a dust bag and forgotten within the depths of your wardrobe, it might be time to give it a little polish and shine, because the Italian bag company’s latest collection of bag straps promises to breathe new life into it. Simply called the Prada Shoulder Straps collection, you’ll be hard pressed to find one you won’t fall in love with. In a selection of buttery soft calfskin, durable saffiano or chic Nastro leather, the straps are designed to look best with the iconic Galleria, Giardiniera and Double bags. Its bold 3D floral embellishments, all craft with crystals, plexiglass and resin or leather are definite statement-makers, adding a gamine touch to the classic totes Prada has come to be known for. IMAGE: PRADA After bag charms and those long strips of printed silk (every brand calls theirs differently, so I’m just being PC and referring to them as ‘long strips of printed silk’), here’s a third bag-accessorising trend that’s definitely here to stay. Yes, no marks awarded for guessing what it is, especially after that other Italian luxury house launched them to great success last year. Yes, it’s the shoulder strap, which like bag charms and those long strips of printed silk (I’m sorry), are now offered for sale individually as well. IMAGES: PRADA Simply known as the Shoulder Straps collection, you’ll find these from Prada in stores from mid-July 2016, and besides being available in various thicknesses in different types of leather (there’s Saffiano leather, classic calfskin and something I’m not familiar with called Nastro leather), come embellished with a variety of 3D flowers as well. Made up of everything from crystals and plexiglass to resin and leather, you’ll just need to decide which strap will go best with your Prada bag, be it theDouble or the Galleria, just to name a couple. Or just pick up a new Prada bag and then a strap since both are sold separately, which also means you just need to head to your nearest boutique for a full look at what’s available locally now. Still not convinced that this trend is here to stay? Well, besides the aforementioned Italian brand and Prada, there’s another Italian brand offering leather straps that are to be sold separately as well (hint: one of their designers just left for a French luxury label), as well as a French luxury house who you could consider a sister label of the French label I just mentioned that the designer is leaving for. In other words, look out for more updates soon.
When it comes to the most iconic bag brands, Prada is easily one of the most recognizable and most widely loved. Prada launched me into my love of designer bags; I lusted after a one of the brand’s iconic Tessuto nylon messenger bags during much of high school, and I received it was a gift when I began college. I remember feeling so enamored of my Prada bag, and even at that young age, I could tell how much higher quality it was from other brands in my collection at the time. Prada is distinguished by meticulous attention to craftsmanship and detail, and that’s still very much the case today. Though Prada has evolved over time by embracing new techniques and ideas, the brand stays committed to the enduring quality of its pieces. Like many long-standing brands, the methods Prada employs have been passed down by craftsmen over the course of years, and they’re so vital and specific to the brand that they could easily be called trade secrets. Just like those crucial rules of craftsmanship, some of the brand’s designs are equally long-standing; two of the most highly sought-after Prada pieces remain the Prada Galleriaand Prada Double Bags.
Prada Double Bag

PRADA DOUBLE BAG – $2,980

The Galleria and Double are classic Prada styles, and they’re very well-loved by the brand’s fans and shoppers. I certainly count myself among that group; if I had it my way, I’d own a rainbow of these bags in every size offered. Below, we have an intimate look at two of the most iconic bags of Prada’s lineup. In addition to that, I have the pleasure of being among the first to tell you all about the new Prada shoulder straps!

Prada Galleria Bag

Prada Galleria and Galleria Mini

PRADA GALLERIA BAG – $2,230, PRADA MINI GALLERIA – $1,920

Founded in 1913 by Mario Prada (Miuccia Prada’s grandfather) in Milan, Prada opened its first store in the prestigious Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. The Prada Galleria Bag was named after the store that started it all, and the bag holds a similarly foundational spot in the brand’s handbag array.

PRADA GALLERIA BAG – $2,230, PRADA WHITE STRAP, PINK/WHITE FLOWERS – $925

Prada Galleria Bag Interior

PRADA GALLERIA BAG – $2,230

This bag is immediately recognizable as Prada, and although some people confuse it with the Prada Double Bag, it has been around far longer. The Galleria shape is clean and sleek, typically using Saffiano leather, which is hot pressed to achieve the crosshatch texture you see and feel. Because of the longevity of Saffiano leather, Prada has used this water-repellant, scratch-resistant material for decades, and the finish style is often associated with Prada because the brand’s artisans perfected it. While the bags we photographed (as well as many of the Galleria bags on the market) are made of Saffiano leather, there is also City Calf version, which is luscious and slightly softer, which gives this bag a more laid-back vibe.
Prada Mini Galleria Bag

PRADA MINI GALLERIA – $1,920

PRADA MINI GALLERIA – $1,920

The Galleria bag holds its shape nicely and is ideal daily use, including in the office. The shape quickly turned into a brand essential for Prada, and many flock to it because of its highly functional interior structure: one large opening, flanked by two zipper-closed pockets at the front and back, all of which run the full length of the bag. The main interior compartment features three inside pockets, one with a zipper, and the body of the bag can be snapped on either side to pinch the top of the bag together to further secure the interior.

PRADA MINI GALLERIA – $1,920, PRADA BLUE SAFFIANO STRAP WITH CRYSTAL FLOWERS – $1170

Every season, Prada reintroduces this bag in a variety of colors and styles based on that season’s theme. This allows countless options and reinterpretations, which makes this bag a classic, iconic wardrobe staple.

Prada Double Bag

Prada Double Bags

PRADA DOUBLE BAGS – $2,980

Introduced in 2013, the Prada Double Bag quickly became a favorite. Much like the Galleria Bag, the Double is reinterpreted every season in colors and fabrications based on the style of the season. While the Galleria Bag offers a bit more structure, especially because of the full body pockets on the front and back of the bag, the Double is more minimal and lightweight. The Saffiano leather on the exterior is paired with smooth Nappa leather inside, and Prada has made the potential color combinations one of the most fun aspects of the design. While many Double Bags do offer tone-on-tone leathers on the exterior and interior, there are plenty of contrasting combinations that blend the inside and out in an unexpected way. It’s one of my favorite aspects of this bag, and I love seeing what Prada comes up with to make each design stand out a bit more than the last.
Prada Double Bag

PRADA DOUBLE BAG – $2,980, PRADA BLACK STRAP WITH PINK PLEX FLOWERS – $1095

The Double Bag offers an internal divider with a flap pocket, which allows for easier organization and helps separate the bag into two main interior compartments. I love this design; the divider peeks out when you’re carrying the bag, and if you have a contrasting interior color, you can see it pop.

While the Galleria and Double Bags have their similarities that make them both unmistakably Prada, there are differences that could easily make one or the other better for your life. If you’re trying to decide between the two, I’m happy to help point you in the right direction in the comments below!

Prada Blue Saffiano Strap with crystal flowers

PRADA BLUE & BLACK SAFFIANO STRAP WITH CRYSTAL FLOWERS – $1170

I’m really excited we get to be among the first to break the news of the new Prada Shoulder Straps. Though both of the above bags offer optional shoulder straps in matching Saffiano leather, the brand now offers a way to customize your bag and show your personality with a shoulder strap that speaks to you and stands apart from the rest of the bag.
Prada Black Strap, white/yellow flowers - $800 | Prada White Strap, pink/white flowers - $925

PRADA BLACK STRAP, WHITE/YELLOW FLOWERS – $800 | PRADA WHITE STRAP, PINK/WHITE FLOWERS – $925

I’ve seen many add-on shoulder straps over the past few years and I can tell you that these Prada straps are some of the most beautiful in appearance and quality I’ve seen. I loved dressing up each bag differently with a strap, and each one transformed the bag. While a strap with oversized leather floral appliqués feels playful, the strap with Swarovski crystal embellishments makes an eye-catching statement. The new collection of shoulder straps allows you to instantly add a personal touch to your bag. The straps are sold separately and come in Calfskin, Saffiano, and Nastro leather with all featuring floral patterns with a 3D effect designed from crystals, plexiglass, resin or leather. The straps are now exclusively available at the Prada Broadway and Prada 5th Avenue boutiques in New York and will be available online by the end of the month.
Flash back to the early aughts when the allure of the It bag was at its strongest. Mary-Kate Olsen was rarely pictured without her Balenciaga City bag, while Chloé’s Paddington was slung over the arms of some of fashion’s early street stylers. These days, there’s no single, standout bag making headlines; it’s more about finding a bag that represents your personal style and making it your own. Designers have taken note, offering up pins, key fobs, and patches to accessorize and embellish their haute totes. The latest development might just be the most fun yet—and easiest to switch up: full ranges of interchangeable straps for fashion’s most luxe bags. Brands from Prada to Louis Vuitton have debuted collections of shoulder straps that give new life to their top-handle and crossbreed bags. Some are eye-catching (see Fendi’s multicolor studded strap), others are more subdued (all things considered, eyelets are low-key for Alexander Wang), but all have a certain eclectic spirit that’s right on trend with fashion’s current mood. We say, wear one over your shoulder and let the other dangle. In this instance, more really is more.

Prada: Cruise 2017 Campaign, Jessica Chastain & The Bibliothèque Bag

Categories:Other Brands

IMAGE: PRADA

Yes, the post title is a mouthful, but this post covers exactly what the title suggests, that of the new Cruise 2017 Womens Prada Ad Campaign that has two stars in my opinion, the first being acclaimed actress Jessica Chastain who fronts the campaign alongside the other ‘star’, Prada’s icon-in-the-making, the Bibliothèque.

No stranger to this blog (the Bibliothèque, not Ms Chastain), the bag has been covered here before, but since it is in this new ad campaign, I thought a quick refresher would be apt. Shot by celebrated fashion photographer Willy Vanderperre in Milan, you see Chastain carrying various sizes of the bags, which I still believe is the perfect corporate work tote.

IMAGE: PRADA

Available in 3 different sizes, the Bibliothèque sports gusseted edges on the side of the bag reminiscent of a book, which brings to mind its French name. Translated, it means bookcase or library, and is totally apt. Besides the gusseted sides, the landscape-oriented tote comes with a pair of short top handles, along with an additional sling that would allow you to carry it over your shoulder. Composed of both Prada’s iconic Saffiano leather and smooth calfskin, they are priced at SGD3650, SGD4300 andSGD4700 for sizes Small (22 cm by 17.5 cm), Medium (26 cm by 20 cm) and Large (30 cm by 22.5 cm).

And if it’s a work bag you’re looking for, definitely consider the ones inMedium or Large, while the Small is perfect for those looking for a fun weekend sling bag that can be dressed up with scarves twirled around the handles and as many bag charms (preferbably Prada, of course) that it can possibly hold.

IMAGE: PRADA

Before I sign off, here’s another work bag contender you could consider. Yes, my heart is with the Bibliothèque, but I know you guys like options, so here goes. Available in 2 sizes, the Esplanade (you can tell the difference from the additional leather strap detail that comes down the side of the bag), they are priced at SGD3450 and SGD3650 for the Medium (26 cm by 20 cm) and Large (30 cm by 22.5 cm). If you haven’t already noticed, they also retail for a whole lot less than the Bibliothèque, which I put down to the simpler design.

Also sold with an additional shoulder sling, both styles are now available at Prada boutiques at Marina Bay Sands and Paragon in a wide variety of colours, from monochrome hues to brights like Red, and neutrals including the likes of rose pinks, soft tans and light greys. In other words, you just need to decide which one would work with your existing wardrobe best.

There is always room for a multi-functional, easy-to-maintain handbag. And if that bag is made by Prada, then it’s only better and more exciting.

Now let’s talk about the Prada Canapa Bag. The exterior is crafted from Hemp Fabric, which is considered an environmental super-fiber and comes from the herbaceous plant.

This Hemp Fabric is also great for hot weather; it has always been a cool choice for the summer as it breathes well. The UV resistant quality will protect anything inside from the sun.

Though the material is ideal for the summer, the style is perfect for all-seasons. Featuring the iconic Prada Milano signature print in the front and with its curvy shape, match it with the right outfit and you’re good to go.

Prada hasn’t even left out the sides, take a look it and you will find their famous triangle logo stitched on it.

Here are more ideas; this bag is ideal as a beach bag as well, because you can wipe the sand of very easily. The material is very strong for carry large and mid-heavy essentials. It can also be used an extra bag, when you already carry a medium size bag but needs something larger to carry more.

Introducing the Prada Corsaire Bag, a New Versatile Must-Have

Categories:Other Brands

It’s easy to build strong associations between a designer and her most popular pieces when they’re so iconic to her brand. When many shoppers think of Prada, they think of Saffiano leather and the Prada Double Bag or Prada Galleria. But Prada’s accessories world extends far beyond those bags, and its newly released Prada Corsaire Bag deserves the attention of all handbag lovers, not just Prada lovers.

The Prada aesthetic has changed over the years, just as all brands tend to, but Miuccia Prada always ensures “the modern woman” is always taken into account. The new Prada Corsaire Bag is edgy but clearly fits into that idea of modernity. There’s something very raw and alluring about this bag, and now that I have seen it in person, I can assure you it’s the type of bag your fall collection needs and my collection wants. There’s nothing better than adding a bag that stands out but doesn’t feel too trendy, and the Corsaire bag fits the bill. It will amplify your fall and winter wardrobe, and its classic enough that you’ll be able to use it for years to come.

PRADA CORSAIRE BAG IN TERRACOTTA+BLACK

The Corsaire Bag (which means “pirate” in English) was first spotted on the Fall 2016 runway. When you open the buckle-fastened front flap, you’ll see the gold ring-embellished fringing which peeks through when the bag is fully closed. This is such an edgy touch, but if it’s too much for you for daily use, you can pare back the look by removing the gold-ring fringing, which is attached to a leather strap. The interior has a magnetic snap pouch that sits under the fringe and fits an iPhone 6+, and that’s where I’d put my phone. From there, you’ll find the two main compartments, which are thoughtfully organized with a pocket in each.

prada-corsaire-10
prada-corsaire-11

PRADA CORSAIRE BAG IN BLACK

The long shoulder strap allows the bag to be carried cross-body as well as on the shoulder. While the dimensions sound compact, the bag is well-designed to allow for plenty of internal storage. The back of the bag offers a zipper pocket as well, so even for the modest dimensions, there is a spot for everything you need to be separated and easily accessible.

Often I find myself thinking bag designs are predictable, but this bag is anything but. I love the idea of fall coats in hues of camel and red and green pairing with one of the many colors and material combinations of this bag. I adore the saddle bag shape because it always gives a bit more of an everyday-wearable feel to a designer piece. The calf leather that makes up the majority of the bag is supple yet durable, and the top flap is made of the covetable Saffiano leather. Buy via Prada for $2,440.

PRADA TRICK AGENDA IN CARAMEL+CHALK, IN BEGONIA PINK+BLACK, AND IN ASTRAL+BLACK

Of course, you can always amplify this already stand-out bag with one of the cool Prada Tricks of the season. I found myself drawn to the Prada Notebook Tricks that were seen as accessories to the bags on the runway. Not only do the Tricks look like notebooks, but they have a small notepad inside that you can use if you’re in a bind and need some paper to write on. Of course you won’t be able to use it for longer thoughts and lists, unless you have the tiniest and most skilled writing ever, but you can use the pages to jot things down, and that feels like a hidden gem to me. Buy the Astral blue via Prada for $595 and theBegonia pink and Caramel via Prada for $480.

prada-corsaire-6

PRADA TRICK IN BRONZE+PALLADIUM & PRADA TRICK AMBER BIRD

Another accessory of the season is these cool Prada Key Tricks, which you can add to your bag or your clothing. The runway showed the Tricks paired with coats and bags alike, but I’m not sure I’m cool enough to pull off the trick on my clothes. I am down with carrying it on my bag, though, and I love the little bird and mouse. Buy via Prada for $310.

While I still love the Galleria and Double Bag as much as the next girl, it’s time to realize that Prada offers so much more, and the Corsaire is a perfect example. This bag is a standout, an attention-grabber, and the next bag I want to add to my wardrobe that differs from the usual suspects; isn’t that what a well-rounded handbag collection needs?
