What I love about the Cleo is its sleek silhouette and clean, curved lines. Its body is incredibly lightweight, ideal for a bag that sits on the shoulder, and it effortlessly transitions from feminine and flirty to edgy and chic, depending on what you pair with it.
This season, Prada introduced a new version of the Cleo bag, outfitted with what many people deem necessary—an adjustable strap that allows for longer wear. Additionally, Prada has taken the shine up a notch this season, too, swapping its sheeny Spazzolato leather with high-shine Patent.
This isn’t the first time I’ve considered getting a bag I own in a second color/size combo. I mulled over (and we all discussed) the idea of getting a second Bottega Veneta Jodie, which I ultimately decided against since I opted for the small Hop bag.
This time, it was a pretty red Prada that reminded me of a yummy candy apple that stopped me dead in my tracks when I was scrolling through Instagram. It was in the arms of none other than Elsa Hosk, whose closet is the one I would like to steal most, but I digress.
Immediately, I ran, not walked, to Prada.com to see more of the newest little Cleo in the color of the season. This version is the mini size, which, truth be told, is teeny and tiny, but that didn’t stop me from giving it a second (okay, even third) look.
I adore the red paired with a gold Prada Triangle on this iteration (mine is finished with silver), adding an elevated touch to the shiny patent. I’m simply obsessed. *Sigh*
