Prada has a handful of highly recognizable bags, including its Double Bag (here are the beautiful colors to expect for Fall) and the Lux Tote. There are, of course, plenty of other bags from the brand that are released seasonally, but the Prada Inside Bag, new for Fall 2015, has inspired anticipation that we haven’t seen for Prada in a while.

The Prada Inside Bag can easily be called one of the biggest bags for Fall 2015, if not the biggest. The best part is the bag is so beautiful that it moves me when I see it. The Inside Bag features a design twist: a carefully concealed twin bag sits within the outer-shell and peeks out just enough to give a beautiful look at the two bags.

The bag is playful yet graceful and seamlessly combines classic Prada touches with a dose of originality. The Prada Inside Bag is unlike others out there, and while it stands out, it doesn’t go over the top in it’s design; it’s subtle enough to be a classic. Prada offers beautiful colors, materials and combinations for the Inside, including crocodile, ostrich and calf on the exterior, which is paired with soft nappa leather on the interior to make each bag stand out.

This bag-within-a-bag shows off Prada’s skilled artisanal work and is sure to make waves once it lands in stores in the next few months. I am having a hard time deciding on my favorite, but the offset colors and luxury skins are simply divine. The bag is available in three sizes, and all come with a shoulder strap. The Inside Bag starts at $2,600 for the small in nappa, $2,800 for the medium and the $3,100 for the large.

the color combinations are beautiful but I can’t stop seeing a cosmetic bag. I’m not sure I like it… yet

I never thought of a makeup bag, but I really like bowler bags so I am biased to the shape!

definite no for me. So the inside bag can’t be concealed?

Wait. Does that bag come out or is it meant to look like a bag inside a bag?

Basically it means that you only get a small amount of usable space to put your wallet, keys, sunglasses, etc. Yet, you are still carrying a large bag? Not for me.

I’m a Prada fan and own several of their bags, but these just don’t do anything for me. Seems like someone is trying too hard. Overall, a miss.

I so agree. I love my Prada bags and was hoping for something beautiful and interesting this season. But these bags are hideous.

There are some beautiful colors and leather choices offered and if they’d done the outer bag alone (with a shoulder strap), I would consider buying it. More staid, admittedly, but it would have been, IMO, a much better bag. The bag could have come with a small, removable dopp-style bag in the contrasting leather as shown in these photos, maybe attached with a small d-ring type chain. Then I would have definitely been interested. But as currently offered, no thanks, it’s both a design fail and impractical.

It doesn’t make sense…

The outter design/silouette is very pretty
I don’t like the inner pouch at all. Could they relaunch sans the plastic makeup bag?

I just do not get the appeal…it just looks like your cosmetic bag is too big for your bag. I do not like it…is there something more appealing about the bag IRL?

haha @ cosmetic bag being too big for your bag. That is such an apt description!

What a silly concept.

I like the slightly undone luxury the open bag represents. And I am sure it was meant to be a bit divisive. The design is in line with Miuccia Prada’s off-kilter aesthetic more so than other Prada bags. According to WSJ, the inside bag is supposed to resemble a man’s dopp kit, and the bag can also be completely closed off. Essentially, the design of the bag gives you three compartments. That as well as different ways of wearing it make it a versatile bag. Also, the basic design and shape of the bag will lend well to lots of iterations in future.

I agree with you. When I first saw the post a day or so ago, I was left with a slightly uncomfortable feeling, but the second time I see the images I feel more at ease with the concept and feel this is almost a new bag segment…the colour combinations give it energy and beautiful contrast with the function being not dual, but triple purpose! May not bcomee a classic, but a brave new entry…very interested.
