Prada bags have fairly classic styling. It’s not difficult to identify them when you catch a glimpse of one of their bags. That’s not the case with their Spring offerings. A marriage of materials with a touch of whimsy are eye-catching and just the right transition into resort.
The Lino Twist Frame Shoulder Bags offer a blend of linen, lambskin, python or croc accents in a way that just happens to work. These are smaller bags in the 10″ x 7 ” X 3″ or 11″ x 6″ x 4″ range. Perfect for luncheons or that evening yacht club party. Personally, I think you could pull it off with some sophisticated dark denim and darling tops suitable for cocktails.
The turquoise and lime green accents are going to be two of the major colors of the season. Prada is right on trend with that selection. For those who love exotic bags but can’t afford the whole bag at $3 – $5K a pop, these are a great option by utilizing it as an accent. I’m loving how the python pops in turquoise and the croc clasp accent is simply darling. Such a beautiful detail! Lime green suede is somehow the perfect accent with the natural colored python.
The interior is beautifully finished with lambskin as a contrast to the linen exterior. Beautifully woven handles are evocative of friendship bracelets and provide a little more whimsical vibe. The turquoise – my personal fave – has a detachable 9″ chain strap. It allows the woven handle to become a decorative element.
Sure, you will not carry a linen bag every day and it is certainly not a catchall option. This bag is for those who can afford fun bags to enhance their collection. $1895 – $2250
