We first caught a glimpse of Prada’s knitted leather during the brand’s Fall/Winter 2010 runway show in March, and I’ve been hungrily awaiting their arrival at retail ever since. Well, they’re here! Almost. Prada has close-up pictures of a few styles and colors on its website, and these Prada Knitted Leather Clutches in particular do not disappoint.

Sadly, my favorite color combination isn’t pictured, but if you imagine the one on the right with red instead of tan, you get the idea. The main thing that I’m taking away from this first look, however, is that I’m surprised by how much I like the black version – you don’t lose as much of the sense of texture as I had assumed when the design is rendered in a single, dark color. The clutch will retail for $2600 once it arrives in store. Larger pictures of both, after the jump.

    These are like a luxe version of your favorite sweater. The version with red sounds divine. If they weren’t so expensive I’d seriously consider buying one.

    Absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! Very unique – I never use clutches enough to even own one (much less one at this price point), but if I were to assemble a “clutch wardrobe” for myself, it would include this one for sure (and a BV knot, heh heh).

  • Cate

    While I appreciate the craftsmanship that must have gone into these bags, I have to admit that I am not at all sold on these. Maybe I could get on board with a white one, though? I don’t know.

  • Stacy

    Love it. Especially the black. Although the black/red would be just as lovely.

  • Staci

    I want one in every color! These bags are super cute!

  • eva Schwarz

    I like the bag1 it has a nice hand crafted look to it. the only problem that i have with it is that it seems like the material makes it uncomforable to hold. I went shopping ion the water tower place here in chicago and found a very gorgeous clutch. i was completely out of money that day but i would have definitel bought it if i had the money. Its suppose to be like 100% bamboo material or somthing, but it feel just great magnificent! *sigh* i now have two clutches on my birthday list. and i better get both of them if my boyfriend knows whats best for him! lol

  • naviastella

    I think it could work if the colours were different…

  • louch

    WOW – these are stunning. I would love to see the red. Wish they came with a small strap so you could also wear them over the shoulder – would make a lovely little bag.

  • FabJennie

    I’m sorry but no way would I drop 2000 + dollars on 1. a small bag and 2. a trendy bag. I love trendy bags but this is just too much for me. I love prada (what girl doesn’t) but I’m a little diappointed. No direspct to any one. To each his own :-s

  • Kellyx

    Too expensive !!

  • MAX

    The price is another crazy thing, but plzz I thought it was Bottega T^T the leather is quite similar. for $2600 is kinda costly

  • Mary

    Normally I dislike prada, but these are stunning. I knit so I can imagine the work that went into knitting these from LEATHER

  • belgianyen

    It’s sweet but I already got myself a black Bottega Veneta knot clutch last month. Trust me, one BV knot is forever however, the knitting on this one is just gorgeous! Hubby, are you reading this???? LOL

  • Jan

    Gorgeous…but over the top with the price tag!

  • weaslgrl

    Sorry, but these just look like a home-ec project to me.

  • JenG

    @weaslgrl, so funny! I am shocked by the price, even though I like them. If I had the money I wouldn’t purchase them. Just too expensive!

  • mochababe73

    It wouldn’t matter to me if it were $26. I don’t really like it, and the Prada plate is not necessary on the outside of the bag. I would prefer one in plain leather with a variety of colors from which to choose.

    • JenG

      LOL!

  • amy

    LOVE!!! damn the price.

  • Ana JB

    Love it and I would like in different colors, BUT the price is OUTRAGEOUS!

  • Jane

    beautiful I love the luscious knitted leather.

  • Tiffany Chao

    Those are really adorable clutches although I’m not feeling the prices.

  • PhotoGirl

    Oh dear. Not so much. Reminds me of a tea cozy or those horrid knitted things nana used to hide the toilet paper roll. Not in love with this look, I’m afraid.

  • CoutureCoco

    These just look lumpy. I don’t even want to hold it! Sorry.

  • !!!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE

    but i never use clutches.

    can’t a homie get a tote or something??

  • EL

    I don’t like the price..

  • nell78

    dropped by into the Prada store in Malaysia to enquire and was told that the clutch will not be produced as the leather clutch is too heavy due to the leather used.

    I really don’t like the basketweave look nor do I like anything else about them. (ipad)

    if you like knitted leather, you’ll certainly love “tricot bags” on LUCILLA PACI web-site: http://www.lucillapaci.it

    vibram five fingers speedhave been designed to help ease you through the difficult transition from heel striking into a midfoot strike, which can have benefits for many runners. A 3mm polyurethane insole cushions impacts transmitted through the thin rubber outsole, and this ultra-low profile offers enough protection for round town routes, though stony ground pummels your feet.

    Good post. I study something tougher on different blogs everyday. It’ll all the time be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and apply just a little one thing from their store. I’d favor to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link in your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m in love with Prada too! I think it’s my favorite brand because its classic and fits perfectly. Every time I have a special occasion I buy Prada, is something automatic, it’s like having breakfast during the morning, wearing Prada during the day. Even my husband wears Prada! Last month we did a trip to Barcelona, Spain, and we went to this wonderful store, Santa Eulalia, where you can find brands such as Dior or Prada Barcelona. I’ll leave you the website and if you have the occasion check it out, you will love it! http://www.santaeulalia.com/
