Like nearly every luxury brand as of late, Prada continues to pull inspiration from its archives, expertly melding historical elements of its past with a modern, contemporary appeal. There is much to buzz about at the House of Prada right now. Season after season, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons continue to wow, taking the title of the most beloved fashion duo of the early 2020s, with the success to prove it.
Prada has always been a go-to for the fashion elite, but like any brand, it has had its ebbs and flows. However, the Prada of now is not to missed. It’s one that is both beautiful and pragmatic. Pieces are meant to be part of your daily rotation, and the latest bag from Prada is a true testament to today’s Prada, blending storied elements of Prada’s past with its innovative future.
A Literal Take on the Prada Triangle
The entire Fall 2023 collection was meant to be an open dialogue of Prada’s past and present, and the brand’s newest shoulder bag represents that discourse. Aesthetically, the triangular Brushed Leather Shoulder bag is beautiful; there’s no doubt about that. But upon a further glance, there’s much more to the bag’s story.
Defining a new elegance for the House, the bag perfectly encapsulates the House’s most staple motif, the Prada Triangle, with a unique modern edge. Its lines are sharp and sleek, offering a geometric appeal. It feels retro but modern all at once, a balance that Prada continues to strike season after season, and this bag is one of the most literal representations of the Prada Triangle to date.
Crafted from the House’s brushed leather, which has become a Prada staple, the bag offers a sturdy hand with a nice sheen. Sophisticated and chic, its nods to the past are further defined by the triangle logo hardware, which acts as the bag’s closure. The bag has a Nappa leather lining, and the interior is finished with a slit pocket. The shoulder strap is both removable and adjustable, and the bag’s overall dimensions are 5.5″ L x 11.2″ W x 2.8″D. Purchase via Prada for $3,950.
