How these brand-new bags bring back memories! The Napa Chevron bags hearken back to the earlier days of Prada – or should I say their glory days? When I first fell in love with the brand, I was in college (Kelly and I bonded over our mutual love of Miuccia’s creations). It was Chanel for the young and hip set, true luxury and truly cool. I’m so happy to see that Prada has gone back to the basic elements for fall 2011: chevron-stitched, quilted lambskin has vintage appeal, and so does the little Prada plaque on such easy styles. Play the part of the glamour girl with the chain-strapped satchel, just right for nights spent out-and-about, in the equally classic Nero ($1,355) and Cammeo (as in black and blush). Or elect soft structure with the leather-strapped shoulder bag, in camel and black ($1,495).
Light or dark, hardware-oriented or more business-ready, you cannot go wrong. I’m stocking up as we speak – bring on the nostalgia!
