Who needs hearts and kisses when you can go around town with one of the shiniest bags this year, thanks to Prada’s latest #Qixi2021 collection? This time around, the Italian luxury house has chosen to embellish their new icon, the Cleo, entirely with crystal appliqués, giving you a super sparkly treat that’s perfect for lovers of a statement-making handbag.
Zoom in and you will realise that the crystals all come in different shapes and sizes, all of which are artfully arranged around the front, sides and back. The smart choice of having satin as the base material ensures that it balances out the weight of the luminescent pieces, allowing you to carry it without worrying about its weight at all.
The versatile leather strap remains a key element as well, coming in an adjustable format that will allow you to sling it casually under the arm or wear it long across the body. Of course, no Prada bag is complete without their enamelled metal triangle logo, which you will still find nestled in the middle of the shiny crystals.
Measuring 22 cm wide and 18.5 cm high, the special edition Cleo will come in colours like Metal (essentially black) and Wisteria (light purple), both priced at SGD4700 each. And if you want to check out the entire special collection, the pieces are now available at Prada boutiques across the island, or you can head online to Prada Singapore’s e-commerce site to take a first look.
