Lately, I’ve been totally immersed in the planet of Prada. I owe you all a post on the bag I’ve been carrying due to the fact obtaining Millie (it is Prada nylon and not technically a diaper bag, additional on that to come quickly), and lately I fell for the Prada Plex Ribbon Bag. I just actually really like a great Prada bag, and I’m excited to expand on my current coverage of 1 of these bags to give you additional of a appear into the newest collection from the brand, Prada Ribbon Bags. Like jewels, metal and a bowling bag, right here is a appear at the newest variety of handbags from Prada.
Prada Metal + Jewels Ribbon Bags
All the things about the Prada Ribbon line is oh-so-Prada, with a sturdy, contemporary, eye-catching touches with reminders of Prada’s penchant for Deco-inspired graphic prints. Miuccia Prada mentioned that for her Spring 2017 collection, she wanted to simplify and declutter, which can be noticed in the clean lines of the bags. There’s a thing so satisfying about a tightly created new bag that gives an intriguing element, and that is precisely what the Ribbon bags do.
When Vlad and I saw very first saw these bags, I spent time playing with the extended leather loop, occasionally tucking it in so it wasn’t as bold and other occasions leaving it to hang extended like the consideration-receiving runway styling. Tucking the loop below only performs on the Plex Ribbon bag, as you can slide the loop into the plex closure, even though on other versions, the mechanism to open and close the bag is a bit various.
There are a number of various design and style selections when it comes to the shoulder bag, which includes an ornate, jeweled metal turnlock closure and a contemporary floral print, as properly as clean pairings of colour and basic hardware. Each and every shoulder bag gives an optional shoulder strap–some leather, other individuals chain–which permits every bag also to be carried as a clutch. I really like this version of the bag it is just the correct size and it stands out as a style accessory that simply stands differentiates itself from other individuals on the marketplace. I currently sung my praises for this bag, and immediately after seeing further renditions, I come across myself actually loving the basic metal clasp with the stunning begonia pink and black print.
The interior of these bags offers a lot of space, with two inside pockets, 1 with a zipper closure. I come across most Prada bags to make a lot of sense when it comes to interior storage, and even though these bags are not big, how owners will use the compartments and carry the bags was clearly taken into account. Dimensions of the leather versions with the metal clasp are 11″ x six.2″ x two.3″, which implies the bag is extended but sits close to your physique if you are working with the shoulder strap (or below your arm, if you are carrying it as a clutch). The jeweled version is a bit smaller sized and naturally a tad heavier mainly because of the embellishments. Rates variety from $two,160 to $three,450 at Prada.com.
Prada Bowling Ribbon Bag
The subsequent style in the Ribbon line is the Prada Bowling Ribbon Bag, and I was quite excited to see this 1 in individual immediately after seeing it on the runway. Whilst I really like Prada’s signature textured Saffiano, the brand’s smooth calf leather is some of the most supple and tough out there. In truth, I continuously hear men and women asking me to function other Prada leathers aside from Saffiano, so right here it is. I’ve held this bag, I’ve played with it, I’ve noted the size and usability–it’s just correct. The leather smells so good–it’s that reminder you get when you open up a new bag and let the smell consume you. This bag has that.
The major handles are 1 way you can carry the Bowling Ribbon Bag, or you can use an optional leather shoulder strap as properly. Whilst there’s an all-black solution, I’m drawn to the colorblocking selections additional. The red, maroon and yellow combo is really beautiful, as is the geometric floral print, if you want to make additional of an influence. The interior has just sufficient space for anything you need to have, and mainly because the shape is east/west, you do not have to be concerned as substantially about losing anything inside of the bag. Two inside pockets, which includes 1 with a zipper closure, and general dimensions are 11.4″ x 7.6″ x six.6″. The Ribbon detailing you will come across on this bag hangs from either side, showcasing a various appear on an otherwise basic, clean design and style. Rates are $two,160 for leather and colorblocked leather and $two,400 for floral print.
Prada Ribbon is precisely what I really like about handbags: it is wearable even though providing a trendy touch. I, like numerous of you, personal a lot of simple every day bags, but occasionally all I want–and what my collection needs–is a standout seasonal piece that I can nevertheless go back to for years to come. The Prada Ribbon line gives it in an eye-catching clutch/shoulder bag mixture or luxurious every day satchel.
