Miuccia just gets me, man. I should just sign my entire wardrobe budget over to her, between Prada and Miu Miu. I just bought a pair of Prada shoes earlier this week (after initially going shopping to scout out a pair of Miu Mius), and now I’m scheming to making one of these Prada Mini Bags my next big purchase. There’s something about the simple, traditional lines of these bags, miniaturized for more casual carry, that makes me see stars. But in a good way.

I’ve wanted a Prada Saffiano Lux Tote for a long time, but the bag never seemed like it would be the right fit for my lifestyle, mainly because riding public transportation and hoofing it around in NYC, in my mind, requires at least a very generous shoulder strap, if not a crossbody option. Over the past two years, that’s kept me away from buying a lot of bags that I otherwise love, including several Pradas. Now, with these mini versions (which are a big trend for a lot of brands, we’ll have you know), you don’t have to worry about carrying something bulky from the crook of your elbow. This is yet another trend that Celine started, but I’m very happy its spread to lots of other brands.

    I found Prada bags r hard to match with daily clothes…….

    • peggy

      They have simple and classic in styles, so I don’t see why it’s hard to match them with office and casual clothes.

  • Marina

    Pardon me if I am wrong, but did Celine start the trend? I believe Miu Miu had their mini bow satchels way before Celine’s mini luggage

    • Dylan

      She’s referring to Celine’s Nano bag.

    • Cheddy

      I think you are right. Miu miu had the mini bow way before the nano luggage. Just that it wasn’t popular. Celine made it big and turned it into a major trend though.
