These days, it seems like every designer offers some version of a camera bag in their lineup, but what separates some from others? For starters, I like a camera bag that keeps it’s shape when it’s not totally full, but also when it is packed up. I hate that overstuffed look you sometimes get when you jam all your things into a small bag. I also love when a camera bag is casual enough to be worn during the day but isn’t too casual that it looks silly when you’re heading out for the night. I found the perfect one in Prada’s Diagramme Leather Crossbody Bag. This little lady is at the top of my wishlist this holiday season. Santa, baby, won’t you please?
I love that this bag keeps its shape no matter how much or how little it’s got hiding inside, and when it gets full it doesn’t puff out or look like it’s going to burst. The quilted leather is beautifully crafted, while the silver hardware and chain strap dress it up a bit, making this the perfect day-to-night day crossbody bag. I was able to fit all of the items pictured above when I took this bag out for a spin, and I’m truly obsessed! Everything I needed for the day fit perfectly: sunglasses in a thick pouch, a mini notebook + pen, my iPhone 6S, a small zip-around wallet, a mini hand cream and a lipstick. If I were carrying this out at night, I could toss out the sunglasses and easily make room for more!
This bag features an adjustable/removeable chain strap with a leather insert for comfort near the shoulder. Inside, the bag is lined in Prada’s signature fabric lining and there are two large slit pockets on the back interior with card slots. I love that the hardware isn’t overly large or super shiny. I looked at a different camera bag recently and was surprised at how gaudy the hardware looked in person. It turned me off of a bag I thought I loved, so I was excited to see this little lady in person, and I really fell for her! Overall dimensions of the Prada Diagramme Bag are 4.5 H x 7.0 W x 2.2 D. You can sang this beauty in beautiful blue for $990 via Prada or pre-order other color options via Saks for $1,050.
