 More Prints Mania: Prada Fall Winter 2012 Tessuto Stampato Nylon Shopping Tote

Prada's highly functional nylon totes, featuring colourful and interesting prints have became one of my favourite bags to carry around any time any day. I got my blue arabic geometric print version in Spring Summer 2011 and I have been looking for another ever since. I love Spring Summer 2012's 'dancing couple' print and Fall Winter 2011's plaids but they somehow never got me excited enough to want one. I want a pattern that is more unique with the right colour tones that can match up any outfits.

For Fall Winter 2012, Prada's mens collection stresses on the power play of masculine males. The silhouette prints of knights, gentlemen and vikings are perfect to exemplify the concept. These patterns have since been translated into shirts, trousers and even jacket pins. When I saw these prints on my favourite nylon totes, I immediately knew the time to get the 2nd one has arrived. The new season prints of these headshots comes in reverse white in navy or tobacco and black against mustard and brown. I chose the latter. The difference in the recent seasons nylon totes is the saffiano leather handles which adds a new level of sturdiness to the bag.

Looks like my year end holiday day bag is sorted. Available now in Prada Ion Orchard in Singapore and retails for SGD580. (There is also a sabre or pistol print in red and black. I am contemplating the pistol version as well!)
