For a bag that just screams spring and summer, Prada has got you covered
I don’t exactly know why, but until this year, I never considered the idea of using or purchasing a wicker or straw bag. While I can’t pinpoint the exact reason behind my anti-wicker attitude, what I can tell you is that my style isn’t overly girly or super feminine, and in the past, most bags in this category turned me off for that reason alone. I just never found a wicker bag that fit my style. Until now—enter The Prada Midollino Tote. I first saw this canvas and wicker tote in black and immediately I fell in love. While it certainly is pretty, it’s not overly girly, which made the trend finally feel relevant to my personal style. The black would seamlessly fit into my current wardrobe and lifestyle, and I’m itching to make it mine! However, if you do steer towards more feminine pieces, then Prada’s got you covered with this pretty, blush-toned version of the Midollino tote.
As you would expect from a wicker bag, this design is super structured, and if I were to give it a name myself, I would call it a top handle bag more than I would call it a tote. It’s fairly mid-sized, and when I think of a tote I think of a larger, less structured style. Even still, the interior of this bag is fairly roomy, and it’s the perfect size for a day bag, which is likely how you would use it, though it could be dressed up for a fun summer night-out look, or dressed down with jeans and sandals. I would even wear this bag with a casual day dress and sneakers. Basically, I just want to carry this and only this for the remainder of the spring and summer months, and if I hadn’t just purchased a brand new bag, I would 100% get this. I absolutely adore it.
This bag is perfect for a summer stroll, a beach vacation, a picnic in the park…shall I go on? This bag is a really great size, and though it’s incredibly structured and doesn’t have any give or room to expand, it fits pretty much everything you might need for a summer day out. It’s made from wicker with a canvas interior and handles and is accented with gold-toned hardware. There’s a leather, raffia and feather tassel that is completely removable, as well as a completely removable and adjustable shoulder strap for your summer days on the go. The top zip is another great plus, especially when you live in a city like NYC. Inside, there is one zippered pocket, as well as an internal slit pocket. Overall dimensions are 7″ L x 10.2″ W x 4.5″ D. The Prada Midollino Tote is available for $1,490 via MATCHESFASHION.com and shop all Prada bags at Prada.com.
