Prada FW16

The Best Bag

tk

I’ve liked this Prada bag (in olive here) since it came down the runway and I predict that it will be the bag of FW16—it’s just so good-looking.

  • Oh my – I just love it, especially the olive green. Hmmm…..

  • The top bag could be a lovely piece to travel with. The lower one reminds me of my Ghurka bags in the 80’s. Well made, very serviceable, handsome, and sporting enough to take to the shooting range or weekends in the field.

  • I have had my eye on this bag! Agree with Kathy – love the olive green. I want to see this in person for functionality purposes.

  • It looks like it would be heavy but it is gorgeous. The red leather is especially stunning.

  • Would be so much better without all those unnecessary dangly gold bits though! I hate unnecessary features on bags – they ruin the nice clean lines of this one. Just my two cents.

  • I agree with Ella. At best the d-rings are a bit distracting from the lines of the purse. At worst, they will clank together to make an annoying noise.

  • Oops–meant O-rings.

  • The olive version is fab

  • Love the green but as others have said, way too much hardware.
