Style on Trial: Prada Pizzo S Satchel

Prada_handbag

We’ve spoken a lot about ruffles on dresses lately and, well, let’s just say that hasn’t been our favourite look of recent years. But what about ruffles on handbags, we ask ourselves? What do we think of them?

Well, if the ruffles in question are on Prada’s Pizzi S Satchel, we’re just not sure. We think it may be the lace that’s giving us pause, here. Now, lace is going to be a big look this winter. This news didn’t go down at all well here at Fashion Police HQ, because we don’t have a whole lotta love for lace. It always looks scratchy and uncomfortable to us, but hey, this is an accessory, not a dress, so that’s not really an issue. And yet still we go back and forth between love and hate with this bag, leading us to finally throw our hands up in despair and put it up On Trial, asking you, the jury: what do you think of it?

    I just can’t see it as looking expensive. The execution is a little sloppy, from what I can see in the picture, and the line isn’t artistic, it’s messy. I like the material, I just think they could have used it better. And for THAT price? Shame on them.

    Not sure why, but as soon as I saw this it seemed like the kind of handbag I would expect to see elderly women carry. Elderly women without fashion sense.

    Arielle, I thought the same thing. It’s just not…Hip? Trendy? Stylish? Take your pick. I just can’t see anyone young and stylish toting this bag.

    Ew. I’m okay with the idea of a lace handbag, I probably wouldn’t buy it but it wouldn’t be too bad, but that weird moldy-looking mohawk of lace is driving me insane.

    Great. Lace in fashion spells more carry-over from the 80s. And the bag would look like you’re carrying one of those black shaggy dogs whose fur is long and rope-like.

    BESIDES ITS UGLINESS, WE MUST CONSIDER THAT IT IS IMPRACTICAL. HOW DO YOU OPEN IT?

    Does it remind anyone else of Mary Poppin’s carpet-bag?

    It looks like the kind of crap you see at a carboot sale. I’m ok with impracticle but that’s just damn ugly.
