I love when Prada sticks to what it is good at: clean lines, great leather and fabulous color. I have to say, I came across the Prada Saffiano Lux Tote today and let out a sigh of relief.

Actually, I’ve seen this bag before, but I forgot about it. So, when I came across it again, all I can say is BRAVO Prada, BRAVO! Unfortunately, I’ve come across too many Prada bags that have missed the mark lately. In fact, they’ve missed the mark so much that I virtually stopped looking at them. Today folks, today is a different day.


This classy bag comes in both blue and red leather – so take your pick! I am more into the blue, but that is my preference. The tonal topstitching adds a hint of texture but it is the golden hardware that absolutely has me captivated. I love how the hardware runs from the handles onto the top of the bag so gracefully. The hardware isn’t too chunky nor is it too flimsy. More than anything, the bag is classic, it is timeless and it is elegant. Everything about it is luxurious and I would starting looking at Prada handbags more often if they kept up with their strengths. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $1495.

    Actually, it comes in several colours and can be custom made to the owner! They can make it in any colour and leather, including exotics. They can also emboss names inside. Just enquire within a Prada store =)

    That’s right, it does come in multiple colors, but if you are looking to buy it through Bergdorf Goodman online, you have red and blue to choose from. :)

    Love it!!! Great color

  • Handbag Lover

    Love it and I love the one from Fendi as well. To me they both look just alike.

  • sfitting

    it is classic and would be nice to carry through the years. I prefer the red though.

  • Merve

    ooo i would love my name in it. Not so sure about the bag though.

  • Jane Doe

    Boring. If it didn’t have the prada name no one would go wild for it IMO

  • CarolineLondon

    Love it, but what’s the little slit near the top edge of the bag for?!

    • Gale

      The little slit is for the keychain that’s excluded from this picture. There’s a key ring on a leather lanyard and you can tuck the key ring into the slit. I just got it for my mother yesterday in red.

  • Cheryl

    Pretty color but nothing special about the bag to pay $1,500 for it. I was wondering what the slit near the top left edge of the bag is for also CarolineLondon?

    this bag will never got out of fashion,like it!

  • Graciella

    Love it! Saffiano leather is very, very durable. This classic style will never go out of fashion. I’d buy one if there were a Prada store nearby to have my name put inside it. Oh and the slit pocket in the corner is for keys I guess – the ones that come with the bag (I assume it has a lock on one of the sides? I’ve seen the slit pocket on Prada bags used for that purpose before).

  • hec

    love the color on my personal side i feel its abit like an intent to make a birkin style prada its a bag i would consider buying because its big and has small handles i love this effect im not a shoulder person but i dont love the exact styling they have had better bags!!!!

  • lainer

    totally agree that they’ve come back with something stunning. this is on my ‘to buy’ list!

  • thehautepursuit

    I totally agree with you here! I first saw this bag in Soho in September but then stopped myself from purchasing it because I had already spent too much money. Now in Vancouver it’s completely sold out!! Prada does great structured, simple leather totes.

    Got this bag in black last summer in Toronto. I saw it in NYC, resisted and then gave in! Fantastic bag that is classic and will last years! The slit is for keys, there’s actually a little lanyard type thing with a key ring attached to one of the handle’s hardware hoops.

  • cp

    i like it — something to keep for years. would appreciate if someone could comment on the weight — is it light or on the heavy side? thanks!

    • Cindy

      I just got it last weekend and trust me, you won’t regret it~The color I got was Ametista, kinda light purple, I think it’s in the middle of red and black which fits me perfectly. The weight you were asking, this bag is really light..

  • chero belle

    I would love to have this elegant bag of prada. This style of bag vibe my classic personality. There’s no denying the fact that it’s adorable and for sure it will bring a perfect touch to any outfit. ‘(fb)’

    this bag is stunning! i owned red colour one..its light n easy to carry either hand or shoulder..

  • Meri

    I just saw this bag at Neiman Marcus. They had black, brown, orange and a mustard color. I like the brown. It reminds me of the birkin. Very classy and very rich looking!! I want one but just got the Louis Vuitton Brea which is another elegant and classy bag. This will be my next purchase.

  • Farah

    anyone know what can be done if this bag gets scratched? some lady scratched my brand new blue tote with the wheels of her suitcase at the airport the other day (yes I know, first mistake was travelling with it in the first place), and the white scratches on the beautiful blue leather are an absolute eyesore. I’m so upset I could cry and Prada said there is nothing they can do :( Help!!!
