Prada Spring 2010 Print Roll Bags

Prada’s Spring 2008 Handbags caught worldwide attention when the Prada Fairy Bag was placed in the spotlight. The Fairy bag was whimsical, a departure from the norm, and highly coveted. In fact it was one of the first Prada bags in the past few years that garnered so much attention people were putting themselves on waitlists to try to get it. Since the Fairy Bag, Prada has not released another bag that created even a tenth of the buzz the Fairy bag did.

When I saw the new Prada Print Roll Bags it was evident that Prada is trying to find another hit. The question is do these print roll bags evoke the same response the Fairy Bag did?


Prada Spring 2010 Print Roll Bags

The answer for me is no. First off, I am not a huge fan of the roll bag shape. The shape has a sporty vibe, but I can’t help but look at it and feel like it is best suited for a 12 year old. The prints on the bags I like, moreso the Saffiano print, which is an allover tulip print. The color scheme for this bag is very whimsical, light, and airy. Then there is the Foulard-Print, a more colorful blue, red, and yellow print.

I am yearning for a different shape. Not this Roll Bag shape, rather how about a bowler style similar to that of the Fairy bag? I truly think that would be a more sophisticated design that would have me giving this bag a different look. Prada may be trying to come up with a sequel to the Fairy Bag, but they are not there yet. Buy the Prada Saffiano Print Roll Bag for $1,550 and the Prada Foulard Print Roll Bag for $1,195 via Saks.

    Exactly my thoughts before I made the jump! Pretty prints, awful shape…

  • Beth

    The shape is juvenile. I think the last time I had a roll bag was when I was 12. Great then, not now. Love a print though, Not enough prints in bags.

  • Shellie Simpson

    Totally on the same page. The fairy bag is hard to top and I still wish I had one. However, Prada is getting closer with these fabulous prints!

  • Kailyn C

    I’ll skip out on the saggy sausage rolls.
    Not my cup of tea.

  • Stacy

    Are they going to the gym or attending a sleep-over? To me, that is what this bag evokes (images of a gym). Better luck in the future. I do like the Saffiano print…it’s better on a scarf, not a bag.

  • Joan G

    Love the print, but the soft saggy shape does nothing for me. Sorry…. it’s a don’t!

  • QueenMAB

    Sorry, Hermes has much better scarf print bags, and scarfs. For a lower price range & fantastic prints go with Pucci. Too Bad Prada as the Fairy bags were wonderful (except for running in the rain.)

    I so loved the fairy bag, I own it too. I totally agree with the “Roll” shape, considering I did sport a roll shape bag when I was in 8th Grade… and now I am well past that period !!!!

    I love Prada, I adore the brand. I loved the Fairy bag. It was amazing and beautiful and different. These bags look like cheap, 10 cents, bags. I pre-ordered some of the others from the Spring line, but these are a mess. The brand really needs to re-evaluate itself and make some tough decisions.

  • 19yearslater

    These are not nice-looking bags. Whimsy and looks like another HL bag are not the same. This doesn’t come close to the fairy bags.

  • Jane

    Boring, the shape is juvenile and sporty. I like the prints, but it should be more sophisticated like the bowler shape. The price is insane for silk scarfs rolled into sausages.

  • Kimberly Marney

    The bag is too casual for the price tag. I do love the fabrics and would like to see them is scarves, blouses, sarongs and so forth. Great for the beach…but not these bags!

  • mochababe73

    I own a Marc Jacobs in this shape and love it. However, I am not liking this print in the roll shape. The prints are all beautiful and would benefit from another shape like the speedy.

  • otter

    Bag on lower right-hand corner looks like it was inspired by Ed Hardy — GROSS

  • Fuji

    No to the print and a bigger no to the shape of the bag. The big ones remind me of hotdog pillows.
    I so love Prada but not these.

  • Michael St. James

    Have you seen the Tote version? It’s gorgeous! Here’s the link…

    The tote version is beautiful!! It comes in 3 different colors and also comes in a smaller tote style with a middle zipper and a bowler. They are hand painted on the more sturdy saffiano leather.

  • sweetvenom

    very ugly!!

  • neli

    Yick. No thanks.

  • Merve

    well its a step up from the bejewelled horrors of last year. I think the prints are lovely and look even better on the tote version.

  • Kittykatbag

    Love the print but not sure about it on that style of bag. Not into the sausage role look!

  • Tikamina

    I love them both but the one on the left is much better then the one on the right!!!!!!!!!!!! (:

  • Somaye

  • Kathryn
