Walk into any Prada boutique in Singapore today and you will be greeted with a treasure trove of nylon (as well as #PradaReNylon) and Saffiano leather goodies. They come in all shapes and sizes with plenty of options for both him and her, so if you’re planning your ‘naughty or nice’ list, the Italian luxury house will be a great contender to add into your shopping walkabouts.
But if you need help narrowing down the options before making an actual trip down, this dynamic duo of Saffiano leather minis would be the ones to watch. For the ladies, there’s the Saffiano Leather Cardholder With Shoulder Strap (SGD1310), measuring just 11.5 cm by 8 cm that’s super cute. The snap button closure opens to a central compartment which is great for holding cash, coins and keys, along with two additional slots at the back for your go-to credit cards.
In numerous colours such as Jade Green, Navy and Peach (along with black, of course), all of them are paired with gold-tone hardware. Speaking of gold, the slinky chain (which is pretty solid, by the way) can slide easily up and down, offering long and short (just loop it over twice) options that can be worn over the shoulder, across the body or around the neck.
The men, on the other hand, can go straight for the Saffiano Leather Mini Pouch (SGD945), a more compact design which comes in colours like Black, Chalk White, Chrome and Fiery Red. Measuring 10 cm wide and 6.5 cm high, this version might fit less than the first mini bag, but it edges out slightly due to its versatility. The accompanying woven nylon shoulder strap can be removed completely, allowing you to hook it to your larger bags like a bag charm, or to use it on its own as a compact pouch.
Both ‘bags’ come with the enamelled Prada triangle logo in front and are made from the iconic (and virtually scratch-resistant) Saffiano leather, guaranteed to weather the test of time in terms of style and material. In other words, not only are they cute, they are also built to last, which can only be a good thing.
