While shopping at Walgreens today, I felt an intense sense of happiness over all of the Easter candy. Actually, any holiday-themed candy gets me giddy. I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, but I always love the tree, heart, and egg shape more. I guess it is my inner child.

Right when I laid eyes on the Prada Raso Pietre Clutch in Turchese my mind immediately thought candy (the jelly bean or Cadbury Mini Eggs variety). Do you see that too?


Clearly my mind is on candy, I have a major sweet tooth. But if I focus on this bag and try not to think about candy, I can see a very interesting stone and crystal embellishment all over the outside of this turquoise satin bag.

The embellishments are interesting to say the least. I do like a clutch that will garner much attention and this Prada bag does so without being overly obnoxious. Dimensions are not that spacious, only 3″H x 7″W x 1″D. Buy via Neiman Marcus for $2,100.

What do you think of this clutch?

    It’s cute, I really like the color of the adornments against the gold. However, I would not invest $2100 for it.

  • ninjaninja

    Fruity pebbles anyone?

  • dj

    I agree with dalex. It’s cute, but not gotta-have-it gorgeous. Also, I don’t know anyone who pays thousands of dollars for a bag. Usually if people I know are really splurging, they will pay a few hundred for a bag they can’t resist.

    lovely! i love cyrstals and purses!!! it’s very classy! <3

  • Krista

    Love the jewels, but no so much on the bag. They would look great on a necklace or bracelet.

  • Lulugurl

    Cute, but not for everyone… :)

  • Blaine

    I would have loved this, but I’m still recovering from Joan Rivers’ comment about Cate Blanchett’s oscar dress be-stoning as “pimples” and “skin disease.”

  • Pam

    I agree with Krista. The jewels would be better on a necklace or bracelet.

  • Cathy Fitz

    Pretty, but it would have been nicer if the stones were just a center cartouche – with a matching necklace or bracelet!

  • mia

    it’s very pretty. i am in love with the colors.

  • 19yearslater

    I like it better when I’m thinking about it being Easter candy. Without the connection it’s kinda blah for the price.

  • Ruhee

    It looks like a pre schooler’s art project!!

  • Stacy

    I love Prada. Its always the first design house I look at when I’m ready to splurge on a new bag…but I would have to pass this one up. Loving the color but that’s all. :(

  • Bir

    I like it very Aztec with European hints

  • jingga18

    Love the color combo – turquoise and gold. But overall it’s a bit OTT.

  • Kellyx

    Looks cheAp

  • gacats

    It looks like it weighs 5 lbs.
    Again, put down the crafting gun before THIS happens.

    Interesting, I have a YSL vintage clutch that is identical shape and embellished the same way, but canvas and raw turquoise in various shades – greener and bluer

    I posted photo in my YSL album on tPF:

    and yes gacats, it is very heavy :))) but I LOVE my YSL clutch, it suits my style of jewlery (I do not wear jewlery, only rings with raw stones, and this clutch is my signature), but Prada’s candy is just a direct imitation, and it does not come close to YSL classy look
