Ever dreamed of getting your hands on an exclusive version of Prada’s inimitable Galleria? Well, now’s your chance with a choice of eight limited-edition designs made in collaboration with Venezuelan-American artist Alex Da Corte.
Each bag features a unique colour-block pattern printed on Saffiano leather. These span the likes of horizontal, vertical, oval, V-shape and geometric panelling in a variety of colour combinations. The prolific artist behind them embraces the use of kaleidoscopic hues and bright pops of colour in his creative work.
Da Corte is also responsible for the concept, artwork and direction of the campaign titled ‘The Glass Age’. It not only stars Scarlett Johansson, but in it, she also carries various Galleria formats both classic and special-edition.

Celebrating the icon in every aspect, these exclusive Galleria bags measure 24.5 cm wide and 16.5 cm high. They also come in a purple and orange box, while the classic ones typically come in black. This completes the unique experience, amplifying the artistry of Alex Da Corte.
The actual silhouette and functionality remain pretty much the same. So you can expect the usual details such as dual top handles and double zip closure. It also retains the adjustable leather strap with drop lengths ranging from 55 cm to 120 cm.
Retailing at SGD11,000 (it is, after all, both an artwork and a handbag), the Small Prada Galleria Saffiano Special Edition bag launches in Singapore and worldwide from 19 May 2023.
