Since we started our #BagsintheWild series on the site and our social channels, I have picked up on trends. I see the bags people are carrying, I can see styles people love most, and many times just like all of you, seeing a bag in the wild helps me further form my opinion on it. We all see influencers and celebrities with products. While they are, of course, real people who have perfected their craft in dressing and styling themselves, I find that it often feels a bit unrealistic to those of us who don’t dress in a more editorial manner. So when I see a bag on someone dressed a bit more like my typical style, I give it one more look.
One bag I’ve seen around Miami a lot recently is the Prada Re-Edition 2000 Mini-Bag. While this bag isn’t new to us, we’ve all seen it; I’ve really come to appreciate the bag and feel reminiscent whenever I see it on anyone. This bag feels like a happy piece of my past when I was getting into the designer bag realm and starting the site, so it brings back some of the best memories for me.
Last week, I saw a girl carrying this bag in Miami’s Design District, and I thought it was a light grey hue, but when the sun hit it, I realized it was the most glorious muted purple shade. Prada calls this wisteria, and it’s a color that allows you to wear purple without it being overly vibrant a color, and sometimes that is exactly what I want.
About the Prada Re-Edition 2000 Bag
The Re-Edition 2000 Mini Bag is crafted from Re-Nylon, one of Prada’s signature materials, which allows it not only to be light but also easy to keep clean. You’ll find the iconic Prada enameled metal triangle logo on the center of the bag, and there’s the Prada Re-Edition key charm that is removable but gives the bag a nice aesthetic touch. The woven tape handle isn’t adjustable, but this bag is meant to be carried by hand or on your shoulder, and it would sit snugly against your body. The dimensions (8.7″ L x 2.4″ W x 6.7″ H) are just enough to fit your essential items – like a card case, your phone, masks, and lipgloss while not being packed tightly.
I sometimes am surprised on any given day about the bag I find myself wanting, but in this case, it’s a color I adore on a brand I love with a shape that brings me joy, so if you ask me… it’s the perfect trifecta.
