    Default Prada's Prints for the Season




    When I think prints on a designer handbag, the first designer that comes to mind is Emilio Pucci. Of course other parties enjoy throwing their interpretation of luxe prints on their accessories as well, such as Prada has done in their Spring/Summer ’10 collection.

    If it wasn’t for the signature triangular logo found hidden within the prints, I would have never guessed these pieces were in fact by Prada. The Saffiano Print bag pictured to the left consists of tulip prints throughout its leather body. I actually took a couple of seconds to analyze the tulip outlines and came to a conclusion that Prada could have done better job on the artistic detailing. Think Prada’s Fairy bags a couple of seasons back; I’d say those feminine detailing were indeed much nicer.

    The Foulard Print is the one I’m a bit ‘iffy’ towards. I like the use of bright prints and complicated pattering on a silk background, but at the same time, it’s a bit busy and doesn’t appeal to my likings. Note both pieces are referred to as roll bags as they both arrive in the cylindrical style you either like or aren’t too fond of.

    The neutral Saffiano version retails for $1,550 while its silk cousin runs for $1,195.

    The prints are nice, but I wouldn't consider it a bag that's one to stay in my closet for years. Which is why I like the leather Saffiano version much more than the prints.


    The tote, leather Saffiano version

    I think the design and prints are too seasonal. This is not one of those bags that will remain stylish forever.
    It looks pretty, but not at that price...
