Think of Prada and you will typically picture bags that come their signature nylon or Saffiano leather, but the Italian luxury brand has pushed the boundaries for Spring-Summer 2020, introducing a mini collection of calf leather (smooth, not grained) bags that feature a large woven motif. The selection is pretty diverse to boot, ranging from the simple Clutch to the bigger Woven Leather Bucket Bag, which was covered back in January 2020, along with three other designs that include the Woven Leather Shoulder Bag, which is also the subject of today’s post.
You can call it a messenger bag if you like, built for ladies (or men) who love an easy to carry bag which can be slung across the body or worn casually over the shoulder. Measuring 24 cm wide and 16 cm high, it’s more than sufficient for a day’s worth of essentials, opening via two magnetic snap closures to a single compartment that will fit everything nicely within. Function aside, the woven motif is particularly eye-catching, coming in a nice textured-effect that you can have fun playing around with. The workmanship is pretty remarkable as well, considering the fact that interwoven leather can be difficult to construct, and you can appreciate the amount of work that goes into each and every piece when you view the bags up close at a Prada boutique near you.
Can’t decide on just one colour? Prada has created the Woven Leather Shoulder Bag in five different options like Black, Brown, Orange, Pink and White, so you can always get two, just because. In Singapore, the bag is priced at SGD3450 each, and you can find it over at ION Orchard, Marina Bay Sands and Paragon Shopping Centre today.
