As specific colorways and designs are synonymous with different brands, the triangle is integral to the House of Prada. The iconic Prada Triangle Logo can be seen on most items, both understated and recognizable simultaneously.
Prada took it one step further by creating a triangle-shaped bag, aptly named the Prada Triangle Bag, and while some may have felt it was too on the nose, I found this bag to be one of the most exciting releases from Prada this past year.
The Prada Triangle bag was released to much fanfare, and I’ve seen the various different iterations across my discover pages on social media. I found this summer to be the summer of raffia – of course, warm weather calls for raffia accessories – but it was the material du jour this summer. The Prada Raffia Totes reigned supreme, but if you ask me, this Prada Raffia Triangle Bag is a strong contender.
The Prada Triangle Reimagined
The historic symbol of the brand was first introduced on tunks by Mario Prada, and this geometric and modern take on the Houses code translates extremely well in the shape of this bag. From the textures of the raffia itself to the elevated embroidered triangle logo on the front of the bag, this bag is one of those exciting bags you run into.
Prada also has leaned into the multi-pouch bags, so there is a zipped removable pouch that integrates seamlessly with the detachable and adjustable logo-webbed shoulder strap. The strap allows for various carrying methods, you could even just use this bag as a clutch, but I find it a highly cool model off-duty look with the strap on. The iconic enameled-metal triangle logo also sits on the bag’s side, and there is metal hardware to finish the design.
The interior features a logo nylon lining, and the dimensions are 14cm H x 10.5 cm L x 26 cm W. The shape of the bag doesn’t make for the most usable interior space-wise, but the bag fits your phone, and the smaller items like your lipgloss will slide to the bottom, more narrow part of the bag, while your phone still fits fine and kind of sits at the top.
While the leather version is lovely and has no seasonal expiration, this raffia version is the bag I keep returning to. It’s dimensionally interesting and intriguing, plus it makes me think I need another warm weather getaway soon, which isn’t bad.
Complete the Look
Also, while I am at it, I would finish the look with these two items because these shoes continue to follow me around, and as much as I thought I hated bucket hats, Prada made me love them. I will tell you what, it’s a danger doing what I do (for my bank account)!
