I’m officially smitten with the Prada Perforated Leather Portfolio that’s part of the Spring-Summer 2010 Mens Prada runway collection. The clasp is small and discreet, and if you look closely at it you will see the logo. In fact that’s the only way you’re going to know that it’s Prada. The portfolio itself is A4 in size, roomy with enough bells and whistles on the inside to keep most content. It’s exactly the kind of portfolio I’m looking for, one that’s dressy enough for events to use as a clutch though I probably need to find a way to scrounge up the SGD2100 it costs to bring it home.
I also spotted a gorgeous tote in canvas with the centre strip in exotic ostrich. And though I’m unable to find a decent image of it online I’m sure you’ll be able to visualise it. Picture Prada’s standard open-top tote, in cream canvas with an added strip in the middle that’s all ostrich in grey. Having tried it on, I can tell you how difficult it was for me to tear myself away from it, though the asking price of SGD4040 did help loads in that area.
And if anyone out there is looking for an inexpensive designer tote in canvas, then check out the new Prada Canapa Tote that’s suitably unisex. Priced at SGD840 each, the totes are roomy and rather fun, especially those that come in the brighter colours like Red, Orange, Navy and Cyan (my personal favourite) besides the one in Black (shown above).
Really not too shabby at all. Check them all out at Prada ION Orchard and Paragon.
