You’ll notice two things about Prada’s Fall 2014 handbags: first, holy chain handles, Batman. Second, they don’t look a lot like Prada handbags as we’ve known them in the recent past. Miuccia Prada sent out a more tightly edited collection of bags than she has on her past several runways, in which every model had a bag in her hands. This time, only 10 or so did, and they were all neutral or metallic flap bags of varying sizes, with relatively minimal turnlock closures.
The bags were less structured that Prada’s recent efforts, in addition to being shoulder bags instead of totes or satchels. My initial concern is that these bags will be super heavy if the chain handles aren’t hollow, and odds are that they’re not – they’d feel cheap, and Prada generally goes for expensive and impractical over cheap and easy. Take a look at the runway bags below and let us know if you’re feeling them in the comments.
