Every once in a while, luxury brands will go the extra mile to make something extra special, and you can consider this Prada’s exceptional take on its ubiquitous screen-printed logo canvas tote. In place of the tonal canvas straps, the Italian luxury brand has added a pair of wooden handles, transforming an otherwise simple-looking bag into one that’s a definite conversation-starter.
Take a closer look and you will realise that the wooden handles are stitched onto the bag (no, not glued), making it another unique piece collectors of Prada will love. There’s something particularly vintage about the wooden elements that give it a lovely contrast against the canvas body, with the handles featuring oval cut-outs that are perfect for sliding your hand through.
The roomy tote has been a go-to favourite for those who are on the hunt for a spacious everyday piece, and you will find that the 30 cm by 23.5 cm bag is more than enough for all your daily needs or even a weekend stay-cay with your loved ones. The added bonus would have to be the adjustable shoulder strap (up to 110 cm in length), one that’s also detachable so you can use it along with your other bags for a different look.
You can find it in black or white at the boutique in ION Orchard, as well as over on Prada Singapore’s online store. Yes, it might be priced slightly higher at SGD2090 (the standard cotton canvas tote starts from SGD1620), but you can take pride in knowing that this is a unique one-off that’s also collectible-worthy.
