The Material Boy #68
Prada Leather Zipped Top Tote
I have been wanting to blog about this bag for a long time now. But seems I have little luck finding a good picture to be featured here. In the end, I have to settle for this picture I found on www.mientus.com. Not the best quality, but it should do to showcase this lovely leather tote from Prada. This bag was featured on the runway together with another version with a top buckle clasp. But seems that was not produced, maybe due to a lack of good response. But fortunately, this zipped top version made it to the stores. Made of very soft and tough polished leather, with straps that run across each side of the bag. The unique buckle design allows you to adjust how much you want to shorten those leather straps and hence creating a ruching effect on the leather bag. Kinda makes it have a bit of a used look or you can leave it ungathered for a more soft briefcase look. This is the beauty of this bag, it works for both an office or casual environment.
What is featured in the picture has black straps, but the Prada store in Paragon has this bag (3 pieces only for Singapore) in brown which I feel looks better with more contrast.
Retail price: SGD $3190. Where to buy: Prada Boutique at Paragon
