Prada Raso Jeweled Clutch, $2100 via Neiman Marcus

With Prada, resort collections are always a good indication of what’s coming when spring debuts, and the cutesy appliques on some of Prada’s Resort 2012 bags certainly belie the flames and cars we saw on the Prada spring runway. Among those very style-specific bags, though, are a few that will likely have a much broader audience.

My favorite of the group is the Prada Raso Jeweled Clutch above, which follows in the footsteps of previous Prada evening bags and covers its entire front flap in shiny, sparkly goodness. We have a sampling of the collection’s other distinctive bags after the jump, plus their price and purchase information. Not all of them have twee appliques, we promise. (Although we kind of like the lip bag? Maybe? A little bit?)

    I like the Madras, and that’s about it.
    What happened to Prada?! I used to lust after those bags. I don’t even look in the store-in-a-store boutiques anymore.

  • Bernice Boyer

    I agree, it looks like they are made for pre-teens. They don’t look classy at all. Not my bag.

  • Shirley J

    the Prada Madras Shoulder Bag is sexi

  • Alice

    I’m not sure if it is just me but none of these are tempting. I tried to pick one but they all either look very plasticky or just childish. Shame because Prada usually does pretty good work on their larger bags.
