Prada Fall 2014 Handbags 6

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.

    Wow that has got to be THE UGLIEST Prada bag line I have seen so far. They look like bogus knock-off Chanel reissue bags.

  • Aly

    Ugly & Uglier! ICK!

  • kindled

    they should be sold with an alternative leather strap.

  • suparnashah

    a turn lock? wow. looks like lanvin.

  • Tiffany

    Unfortunately I think they missed the mark on these ones…these are neither practical nor pretty…*two thumbs down* :(

  • Ruby

    Yikes! I can’t imagine a chain strap in our northern climate. I love a lot of Prada bags, but no.

  • abbi

    I agree looks like Lanvin and Chanel locks…however im reserving judgement because this shape i feel has potential

  • alice

    What happened to the famous Prada bag, a model of style? What are these ugly bags? Oh my God…

  • Sam

    I think these are awesome – whats with the hate?

    • Sam

      Why is everyone assuming that anything with a turn lock and a chain strap is a reissue? I don’t think these bags are even remotely similar.

  • lulu

    Ugly…nuf said.

    Prada, true to form fuses her aesthetic of ugly-chic with the wandering so over the fashion landscape. Sadly, these lack the sense of “Prada-ness” that we have come to love and revere.

    It is a “no, thanks” for me. Gucci all the way -especially with their fringe bag, and my still-favourite bamboo tote.

    Sorry, Miuccia: not stoked over these new releases.

  • Emmy

    Awful !

  • Will

    I would definitely into these bags because they’re my type, very edgy.

  • Sharon

    The part where the chain is attached to the bag is dragged in all different places. Nay nay nay. Fail.

  • MelinSf

    Love, Love, Love! If the chains are long enough for cross-body then I’m buying one of these bags. Finally something different and edgy from Prada.
