Though I’m totally in love with the CELINE luggage tote for quite some time now, I am not lured by the Prada Twin Pocket Tote Bag with its expandable-wings. Very attractive, but no, just let me have the saffiano tote please!
But I do not dare to say ‘NO’ to the new PRADA Twin bag, crafted from saffiano Cuir leather. You see, it has the same DNA like the Prada Saffiano Wallet Bag Replica Saffiano Tote; the distinctive shape, the comfortable handles and the chic tag hanging from the right handle. While the Twin Bag has a lot of similarities, the design is more modernized and the leather stronger and shinier.
Why is it called ‘TWIN’, the secret lies in the interior. The bag is built with three compartments, two large pockets and a zip pocket in the center. The ‘twin’ might refer to the large pockets. The centered zip pock is ideal to hold your A4 documents or even your iPad because it cannot be crushed or tumble.
What you will adore the most are the nine wonder colors you can choose. Which one is the most attractive to tote for the spring and summer? The colors are red, papaya, sunflower, cornflower blue, green, pale grey, caramel, hazelnut and black. The size is measured at 38 x 26 x 18 cm (L x H x W) and it’s priced at $2,950 USD/€2.100 EUR. At PRADA e-store.
After almost a year, I think that the state of the bag is excellent. From the start I already made peace with the expectation that there would be a few leather warping, but there’s absolutely none! Along with the opening shows hardly any wear as well, despite constant reaching in and from this bag.Below is a detail shot of some dirt build-up. It only occurs where there’s a lot of hardware movement; I think the gloss on the hardware pushes off onto the leather, which brings dirt. The Prada care card says that Saffiano leather is “calfskin that has been tanned using natural procedures, treated to ensure it is hard wearing and printed to produce a distinctive semi-lustrous impact… Clean with a soft, dry cloth.” Rubbing in circular motions with a soft cloth for a few minutes removed 75% of the dirt; a really lightly dampened cloth removed the rest. Hooray! This tote satisfies all the criteria that I originally picked it for, and no problems have come up in the year I’ve been using it. I believed my Chanel WOC would be my final bag for a long time, but after some time I could not dismiss the reality that there were things left to be desired. I can confidently say that this Prada bag has finally filled the little emptiness within my heart, and that I wander the handbag aisles searching for love. I have found The One For Me and my heart is content. (It still slams its doors, though.) If you’re a designer handbag aficionado, this purse requires very little introduction. The Prade Saffiano bag is among the staples of classic handbag fashion. Something that unites the class of LV Speedy or Chanel 2.55. It really is one of those classics which sort of surprises me as to why I haven’t done a review of the beauty yet. So today, I am rectifying that.
