It’s easy to fall into buying the same types of bags, I’ve done it myself. You find a style you like, decide it is ‘so you‘, and then you keep buying the same type of bag. Sure, you end up with a different shapes but overall your bag collection starts to look the same. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing that you know your personal aesthetic, but there’s something to be said about changing things up as well. I’m always looking for something different and right when I saw the Prada Plex Ribbon Geometric Bag, I knew it was just the type of bag that my collection can use.

I love a good shoulder bag, especially one that offers a long shoulder strap. In this case the strap is optional, so you can carry this bag as a clutch as well and I actually think I prefer it that way. The focal point of the bag is the geometric plexi tab closure which gives the bag a very modern finish. Through the plexi tab closure, two leather tabs can be looped to both open and close the bag. I liked playing with the leather straps to sometimes show just one or both (in the colors that I had, the second leather strap was black), though on the runway both straps always showed. The interior of this bag offers just the right amount of space along with one slip pocket.

Overall, this is a really cool bag that I find myself really drawn to. I love the color combos Prada paired together in each (both the blue and pink are the most perfect hues of their respective colors, then again I think Prada makes some of the most gorgeous blue and pink hues). I felt a very South Beach vibe with this bag and the colors I was sent to check out. But mostly, I found this to be the Prada that I know and love: classic with a modern twist. Buy via Prada or black and white version are available at Neiman Marcus for $2,280.

    I love the pink and blue! You’re right, Megs, Prada does gorgeous pinks.

    • I love love love the pinks Prada does! They get the hue right every time!

  • Sparky

    gorgeous but the tab will be banged up the first time I take it out.

    • The plex closure or the leather tab you think?

      • Sparky

        leather tab: dog-eared quickly.

        I see it happening already to the yellow one in the first pic

  • FashionableLena

    My favorite colors are light pink and baby blue do that combo is calling my name. I checked out the Prada and Newman Marcus sites, and I really like bicolored strap.
    I guess that I’m at an age now that I don’t want to drop $2300 on a bag that I don’t consider an everyday bag. I don’t think that I would get my money’s worth out of it.

    • I honestly think it’s much more usable as an everyday bag than it appears. If you don’t have to carry a lot, you can fit the necessities inside and the style is great!

  • TheModMazza

    Wow…. that bag is adorable! I especially love the blue one.

  • psny15

    how festive and young, its perfect for younger girls – more a miu miu style than prada in my opinion

  • CoCo

    Is the shoulder strap adjustable? If so, I might be taking a trip to the Prada store!

    • I don’t remember specifically – will check with Prada and get back to you on this!

    • You can’t adjust the strap – but the strap felt good on my shoulder I can say. I just didn’t show a photo that way because I loved it as a clutch!

  • Kate

    I’m conflicted about this one. Might be in the “cute bag but just not my style” category. I would probably admire it if I saw someone else carrying it.

  • So cute bag and every woman choose best quality and design.

    what’s the dimensions?
