A few weeks back I told Dania I was interested in covering the new plaid Prada bag. Cough. That was before I realized it wasn't actually plaid. I'd caught a glimpse of it in a Pre-Fall '10 preview and felt a tinge of excitement to see what I thought was a red plaid bag making its way down the runway...
It's actually a Prada textile that has more of a mid-century feel to it. Up close you can discern that it's been printed on the same nylon fabric that originally lifted her label into stardom a couple of decades ago. So if you can get past what is bound to be an exorbitant price for a nylon bag, it appears to be sturdy. Nylon bags can bear a lot of wear and tear and the red leather croc pressed handles add a nice touch. I'm also liking the shape with generous roomy side compartments--very practical. It's potentially a fun every day bag that also carries the clout of Prada. I'm telling you, this bag could be rationalized.
For those who prefer a more sophisticated palette, it also comes in a mustard/teal version of the same print.
So tell me, like or no-like?
