Handbag of the Week: Prada’s Striped Nappa Tote

Prada

We were in two minds about this handbag. We were going to put it up On Trial, and let it face The Fashion Police Jury (that’s you, by the way), but it’s so rare for us to find a multicoloured handbag that we don’t instantly hate that we decided to throw caution to the wind and make it Handbag of the Week instead. Sometimes we come over all generous like that.

So, Prada’s Striped Nappa Tote. If ever Joseph finds himself in need of a Technicolor dream bag, this would be it. Would we spend $2360 on it? Absolutely not. Do we quite like the look of it, in a "we shouldn’t really like this, but we kinda do" way? Why, we think we just might.

    Sorry, but I don’t feel it. Let me ask you one question: If it wouldn’t be a Prada number, so without the prestigious name and the $2360 price tag, but a… say: $10 price tag and a no-name tag, would you still love it? I wouldn’t, that’s why I say: not a lovely handbag, but the remnant of a circus tent.

    Umm I must say I don’t think the bag is THAT bad… I mean just imagine, a short black dress and some colourful tights in the colour of one of the stripes, some pumps and then this bag. Summertime, going ot, not too formal not too casual…

    I totally agree with Sarah, Bill Cosby would love it! Personally it does nothing for me. Give me a Anya Hindmarch Copper leather tote any day….

    I love this bag. These colors are so in right now. I just got an amazing pair of jeans from HOUSE de LUX that have gold detailing and would go great with this bag! They are so comfortable and fit like a glove!
