In a fashion landscape so varied and eccentric that the simultaneous embrace of leopard, lace, military-chic and minimalism doesn’t seem all that far-fetched or contradictory in the least, sometimes we forget the charms of a simple, good thing. You know who doesn’t forget that kind of stuff? Miuccia Prada. The Prada Saffiano Lux Tote is exactly the kind of bag I want to turn to when I’m feeling trend-weary.
This design isn’t new, and we’ve probably covered various iterations of this bag in the past. The more I see it, though, the more I think it deserves mentioning. The straight lines and clean edges are basically perfect in their simplicity, and the stiff, tough saffiano leather will hold its shape for years to come. For me, this tote is perhaps the perfect price-effective alternative to a Birkin, particularly if the buckles and flaps of the Hermes classic prove to be a little much for your usual style. I’ll take one of these in every color, and I bet I’d never get sick of carrying them. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $1550.
