From the moment I saw the Prada Inside Bag hit the runway, I was drawn to it. I was excited to share detailed images of the bag with you all as soon as we had them, but it seemed like those of us who loved the bag were in the minority. I'm still not sure why, but I'm here to again tell you why the Prada Inside Bag is one of the best bags out there right now.
For starters: the Inside Bag is different! One of the comments I hear most often is that a new bag from Designer X actually just looks like an old bag from Designer Y. The Inside Bag is genuinely a new take on the satchel shape, an that automatically wins points with me. What helps even more is the design is really pretty. Prada fused together different hues for the bag's signature inside compartment to ensure it stood out from the outside, and many of the combinations are stunning.
I needed to see the bags myself to see how the Inside Bag worked, and this is my biggest praise for the bag; this bag is incredibly functional. The inside compartment is best used as your main compartment, both the smaller and larger size fit a continental wallet. There are also three open flat pockets on the interior compartment as well.
There was a lot of debate about the space between the inside compartment and the outside shell. After playing with the bags for a while, I realized I'm obsessed with the design. I have reviewed quite a few of the bags I use most, and one thing they all have in common is multiple separated compartments so I can easily store my items and find them just as easily. This is what the Inside Bag delivers, you can keep your keys and phone in the outer compartment, so think of this bag as having three compartments for storage.
The Inside Bag's outside shell zips over the interior shell, and you can close the interior and leave the outer shell open so it peeks out. I found this bag much more spacious than I first anticipated, and the leather is so smooshy and divine. The inside compartment is not removable, and if you are putting contents in the outer compartments, keep in mind that you might need to zip the outer shell up a bit for more security.
The design has an optional shoulder strap as well, which is always a major plus for me. I like the rolled top handles, and on the larger size of the bag, they slide easily onto my shoulder. If you are on the fence and able to go to a store to check it out, I would highly recommend doing so. The Inside bag comes in both medium and large sizes (some stores call them small and medium), and prices start at $2,720. Shop Prada bags via Saks and Bergdorf Goodman online.
