Prada re-designed their Saffiano Leather Tote as a Christmas Gift Guide to help you decide the perfect present for your loved ones. What is a better gift than a handbag that everyone loves and craves for?
This is a limited edition and the only saffiano tote that is made with contrasting trim on the edges. Its minimalistic design is ideal as an everyday bag and can marry anything you’ve in your wardrobe. The trim on the edges adds a flavor to its chicness.
Made with double leather handles, it also comes with a detachable or adjustable leather shoulder strap to carry cross body. It’s refined with steel hardware for the best look. With metal lettering logo on the leather triangle, snap closure on sides. The interior is large enough to store more than your essentials – three inside pockets including one with zipper closure.
Measuring 28 x 19.5 x 12 (L x H x W) cm, priced at $1990 USD and €1400 euro’s, via Prada e-store.
I also wish to explain from the movie that when I stated soap, I supposed I was told to use soap with a little water on a cloth or paper towel to clean stains, making sure to wash the area dry afterwards. I have never had to use soap though, as usually just a little water onto a napkin eliminates whatever surface stain or mark I have made on these bags.In my opinion the Prada Saffiano bag is one of the very classic bags together with the Hermes Birkin, Chanel 2.55, Lady Dior and LV Speedy only to name a couple. However, the Prada Saffiano is much more wallet-friendly than the Chanel 2.55, better fitted for the younger person than the Hermes Birkin, more work suitable than the Lady Dior and more practical compared to LV Speedy. That is why I bought the Prada Saffiano Double Zip tote after my first year of job. It has almost been 2.5 years since I got the Prada Saffiano along with my remarks on the bag might be beneficial if you are also eyeing the bag (especially the high quality and wear and tear of the bag).The costs for these two bags were rather similar, I think the price for your double zip bag was about $100 more than the lux tote. Ultimately I bought the double zip bag for many reasons:I liked the more ordered and shaper silhouette of the double zip tote over the lux available tote.I believed the zipped compartments would be useful especially for pockets and other valuables.I enjoyed the open internal design of the dual zip bag vs. the lux open tote which formerly had a divider in the middle.Two and a half years later, I still liked the structured silhouette but it is not worth the trouble with all the sealants problems on the double zip tote (more details later). I seldom use the zipped compartments (see explanations afterwards) and I like the open internal design but afterwards Prada came out with lux open bags with no inner dividers. Overall, I wished I’d bought the lux tote over the dual zip tote (reference Wear & Tear section for more details).
