Man-Bag: Prada Canvas Messenger
The other day my co-worker Johnathan (who happens to be a fashionista himself) approached me from a distance. I knew he had news to share, as I was able to pick up the excitement glowing all over him. It was that â€œnew handbagâ€ vibe that us bagistaâ€™s give off as we walk out in public carrying our latest acquisition. Upon viewing his new messenger styled man-bag (from a distance), I would have never guessed it was a piece of couture, until I saw the oversized Prada logo engraved right up front. It was a good size but a bit plain, definitely masculine, but not eye-catching. I speak for myself when I say that I hate how many of my non-logoed bags donâ€™t get the attention they deserve, as if they must scream â€œDESIGNERâ€ in order for them to receive a second glimpse. Then again, the community of handbag lovers seems to expand by the day, feeding into the male population as well. Iâ€™ll buy a bag because I love it, with no intentions to please others. Just like my buddy digged the tan jacquard canvas, brown leather straps, and gold-toned hardware found on his new Prada.
Guys, what do you think about this Prada?
