When you see a petite quilted flap bag with a chain strap that is intertwined with the same material as the bag itself, it’s difficult not to think only of Chanel. The Prada Printed Chain Shoulder Bag didn’t immediately cause that association in my head, though. Rather, my first thought was, “Ooh, nice print.”
Whether or not you like this bag probably hinges largely on whether or not you like Prada’s famous patterns, which are always sharp and interesting, as opposed to girly or traditionally pretty. I love them, no matter how difficult they may make it to fit a bag like this into a wardrobe. During warmer months, I think I could make it happen, though.
Pattern appreciation varies quite widely based on personal taste, so it’s just as likely that you’ll disagree with me on the relative merits of what we see above. And that’s fine, because the more people don’t like it, the larger the chance that it will go on sale eventually, and I need it to go on sale so that I can buy it. Enjoy this bag as I might, I’m not paying almost a thousand dollars for something that isn’t leather, no matter how much it might spruce up my spring whites. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $980.
