I’m a sucker for structured bag, so when mom took me to the Prada store back in Vienna, I drooled over the Saffiano bag. I have been eyeing this particular Prada bag since forever, but the actual purchase was a spur of the moment. At first, I wanted the smaller one, but the smaller won’t fit much when travelling. So we decided to take the medium one in black.
This classic bag is made of calfskin leather, making it easy to clean and not prone to scratching. It has one detachable sling and 2 top handles, 2 zipped pockets and one in the middle with snap closure. The zipped pockets don’t fit much (it certainly doesn’t fit a Kelly wallet!), but you can put your pack of tissue and wallet it the middle pocket, and save your make-up for the zipped one.
It is sized at 12.9 inches long, 9.2 inches high, and 5.5 inches wide. The Prada e-store has it sold in 14 different colours. My favourites are peony pink, caramel, chalk white, and black. What do you think? Do you prefer this classic Saffiano Lux tote or the newer Saffiano Cuir leather tote?
