There are certain bags that immediately catch your eye and are identifiable as particular designer off the bat. To accomplish that, some brands use a classic monogram, others with signature hardware, and many have shapes that jump out immediately as brand icons; Prada prefers the final option. Two of the most recognizable Prada bags are the Prada Double Cuir Bag and the Prada Galleria Bag. Both are well-loved by shoppers and come in a variety of colors and combinations. Prada recently launched a new rendition of one of them, Prada Galleria Bag in City Calf, and I had to share it with you–it’s really lovely.
The Galleria is a bag I already know and love. While very similar to the Double Bag, the Galleria is different in that the interior features two zip pockets attached to the bag’s front and rear panels, and the overall shape isn’t quite as structured. These pockets are great to store items you don’t need to access frequently, want to separate from the bag’s general contents, or have a hard time finding and always want to more easily locate. The new evolution of this bag features City Calf leather instead of Prada’s legendary saffiano, and the interior is completely lined in suede with contrasting colors.
The Prada Galleria bag is named after the brand’s first-ever store in Milan. It’s a bag that is very Prada: easy to mark as a brand staple and impeccably made. Prada imagines beautiful color combinations, and this bag shows that with a rainbow of exterior colors contrasted with offsetting interiors. The bag is priced at $2,390 via Prada or shop Prada bags at Bergdorf Goodman.
