When it comes to the most iconic bag brands, Prada is easily one of the most recognizable and most widely loved.

Prada Woven Madras-Pattern Shoulder Bag

Prada is hard at work diversifying its handbag selection season after season, proving there’s much more to the brand than Saffiano bags. (Although, if you ask me, those are still some of the best bags out there for long wear and daily use.) We got our hands on the Prada Woven Madras-Pattern Shoulder Bag last week, and I fell for it immediately.

Prada Unboxing

We’ve spent a lot of time in the PurseBlog offices talking about adding videos to the site. I’m not one that really likes to be in front of the camera, it’s just not my personality (hence why I don’t use Snapchat much–sorry), but the time seemed right to give it a shot, so we decided to kick it off with a shopping favorite: an unboxing video.

Prada Galleria Bags

There are certain bags that immediately catch your eye and are identifiable as particular designer off the bat. To accomplish that, some brands use a classic monogram, others with signature hardware, and many have shapes that jump out immediately as brand icons; Prada prefers the final option.

Prada-Fall-2016-Bags-39

Prada is a brand built on thoroughly modern ideas of femininity and it always has been; Miuccia Prada was thinking about “the modern woman” and her functional needs long before the phrase was the descriptor of choice for every designer under the sun.

Prada Bicolor Double Bag

When it comes to bags, the Prada Double Saffiano Cuir Bag is easily one of the most recognizable out there. It’s very elegant, timeless and has been spotted on the arms of celebrities, as well as one of my favorite TV characters, Olivia Pope.

Prada Resort 2016 Bags 6

I found myself in the camp of people who love the Prada Inside Bag, though many of you still weren’t sure this bag would take. Love it or leave it, the Inside Bag continues to be part of each Prada collection including Resort 2016.

Prada Inside Bag 9

From the moment I saw the Prada Inside Bag hit the runway, I was drawn to it. I was excited to share detailed images of the bag with you all as soon as we had them, but it seemed like those of us who loved the bag were in the minority.

Prada-Spring-2016-Handbags-11

Last season’s runway debut of the Prada Inside Bag was the brand’s biggest bag launch in recent memory, and based on the handbags in tow at the brand’s Spring 2016 show, Prada clearly intends to take that momentum into next season.

Celebrities play an important role in any luxury brand’s ecosystem. Advertising can only go so far; shoppers often look to celebrities for style inspiration (whether we like to admit it or not), so it’s always interesting to watch how stars react to an important new design.

Prada Inside Bag Struzzo Tamaris Pesca Detail 02

Prada has a handful of highly recognizable bags, including its Double Bag (here are the beautiful colors to expect for Fall) and the Lux Tote. There are, of course, plenty of other bags from the brand that are released seasonally, but the Prada Inside Bag, new for Fall 2015, has inspired anticipation that we haven’t seen for Prada in a while.

Prada Double Saffiano Cuir Orchidea and Acquamarina

Summer may have just kicked off, but stores are already getting pre-orders for fall bags, and Prada has my heart. One of the most coveted bags from Prada, the Double in Saffiano Cuir, is being released in new color combinations that match ready-to-wear looks from the Prada Fall 2015 show.
