More updates from the Prada Gifts 2008 collection. First up, the Prada Fancy Chain Handbag (shown above in Turquoise and below in Antique Gold), which despite having tacky plastic faceted stones mounted onto the body, still looks pretty good. Having seen them for myself just now while browsing at DFS Scottswalk Galliera I can attest to that.
The SA did say the body was made up of strips of whips leather (a species of snake) which would explain the SGD2380 pricetag. The interior is made of nappa leather, soft to the touch and oh so luxurious. Best thing, the sling (which is made of brass) can be removed and used as a choker too.
A less expensive option would be the one made with heavy gabardine fabric which comes in Clover (shown above), Anemone and Black that retails for SGD1710. And if you are eyeing the gorgeous dangling earrings, they are the Prada Tessuto Stones Earrings and retail for SGD590 a pair.
