Prada Velluto Wristlet Pouch

My opinion on these new little wristlets from Prada is yet to be determined. Part of me looks at them and merely sees a stage prop perfectly suited for Shakespeare in the park. The other part of me thinks the colors are drab, materials are not feasible, and price is outlandish. Both of the Prada Velluto Wristlet Pouch are designed with velvet which is a material little known to the modern handbag market.

One is made with mustard velvet and the other with a gold velvet design on top of a blue satin body. That is just it, the mustard, is a color which at times can look beautiful on leather but looks like a baby’s diaper in velvet. Both have a drawstring cinch at the top and a wrist strap. The more I think and talk about it the more this piece has shown me it is fit as a prop and not much else. Dimensions are 6″W X 8″H X 5″D. Buy the designed version for $450 via Saks and the mustard version for $395 via Saks.

    I actually kind of like the blue satin one! The mustard one is ridiculous though.

    Definetely not worth the money, but the blue one is cute.

    Reminds me of a gorgeous $15 red velvet bag from Target that I like to carry around Christmas – total no-name bag that gets non-stop compliments. These are cute in the same vein, but so very overpriced considering the material and construction. These could be made with $10 in materials and a sewing machine in a basic sewing class.

    Nice for Lady Macbeth, not so much for real people.
