Prada has gone all out for this year’s Qixi (also known as Chinese Valentine’s Day, which is just round the corner on 7 August), with a plethora of bags, accessories and SLGs specially created to celebrate the occasion. From signature silhouettes decked out with romantic floral and heart-shaped appliqués to all-new designs introduced for the season, there’s bound to be something for everyone.
Now, it’s not often that you see brands redesigning iconic shapes for one-off capsules, but Prada has successfully done it with this version, managing to retain the very essence of the Odette, a sturdy Saffiano leather bag with dual zip compartments and a top handle. Only this time, it comes in a heart-shaped silhouette that’s perfect for those of you on the lookout for something fun and romantic all at once. Measuring 19.5 cm at its widest and 16.5 cm high (excluding the top handle), this Odette is furnished with a roomy compartment and three card slots in the interior, along with a second zippered compartment at the back.
You can choose to carry the bag via the top handle, or sling it over the shoulder or across the body, thanks to the additional shoulder strap it comes with. The best part? It comes in at SGD2730, the same price point as the classic Odette, and is available in colours like Black, Pink and Red.
And to match your new bag, you can consider the Saffiano Leather Pouch (SGD760) which comes in a heart shape as well, finished with a detachable metal chain strap that you can wear like a necklace or attach to your bigger bags and let it hang like a bag charm.
