Green With Envy: Prada Vitello Shine Satchel
With the Fall season coming, I’m looking for a new color palette. Rich plums, deep blues, subtle grays, and even forest green. This apple-ish green shade is a real surprise, but somehow it works! The fabulous house of Prada never fails to come up with something a little bit different and interesting.
The Prada Vitello Shine Satchel follows the current trend of satchel styles with lots of “pop”. Smaller in size than the working satchel, it’s 10″ x 9″ x 7″ size is simply perfect for day to day useage. The square-ish shape is softened with rounded corners and is a great silhouette that mixes the styling of lady-like doctor’s bags with a bit of edge. Two outside pockets provide design interest and functionality. A long adjustable strap with 14″ to 18″ drop provides a comfortable hands-free option to the lustrous, rolled double-handles.
This bag features a gold-tone hardware which surprises me that it works so well with the green, but I think it’s the better choice over silver in this instance. The leather is subtly distressed for further styling interest. The roomy interior features signature jacquard lining and zippered pocket. Metal feet protect the bottom of this fun little bag.
What I love about this shade is how easily it translates with denim, navy, black, charcoal and other great fall shades this season. Pair it with a great plum sweater and it really shines!
$1395 Saks Fifth Avenue
