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 “new handbag” vibe that us bagista’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 don’t get the attention they deserve, as if they must scream “DESIGNER” 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. I’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?
