Prada Paradigme Bag

Categories:Other Brands

I’ve always been a Prada girl; in fact, my first premiere designer bag was a nylon Prada messenger bag that I used for college. Did it fit everything I needed? No. But I loved that bag, and I made it work. Now, I’m a major fangirl for Prada’s more structured offerings. The brand does Saffiano so well, and some of its classics, like the Prada Double and Prada Galleria bag, are among the most sought-after bags out there.

Enter the Prada Paradigme Bag. I love this bag. I simply love it. The Saffiano and calf leather combo is oh-so-lovely, and the interior of the bag is made for ease of use, with two accessible zippered pockets and two interior pockets, including one with a zipper closure. The bag has offset color embellishments on the shoulder strap and inside, which gives just the right touch of playfulness without going overboard.

This bag is made to be easy to carry, with double leather handles and a detachable and adjustable leather shoulder strap. And like many other Prada bags, there are ample colorways, so you can find one that meets your fancy. All I can say is this bag is what my Prada dreams are made of and I love the black with pink combo. Overall dimensions are 12.2″ x 9.2″ x 5.9″. $2,710 via Prada.

Prada Safiano (Lux) Leather
One of Prada’s most popular and historic leathers is none other than Prada Safiano Leather. This gorgeous leather is made specifically of Calf leather with a uniquely designed diagonal pattern. In fact, this diagonal design is so unique and specially made it has been patented by Prada. Made with heat-stamped synthetic grain, Prada Safiano Leather is incredibly durable and resistant to almost anything- including water- making it the go-to choice for everyday bags. Women love the elegant style of this particular leather, but they love its resistance even more. Simply stated, Prada Safiano Leather gets a 10 out of 10 and you should definitely consider it for you bag.



Prada Tessuto/Vela Leather
Created by Miuccia Prada herself, Prada Tessuto/Vela Leather is a very common, trendy, and ever-popular leather. It has been noted as “one of the thickest” and “most durable” leathers on the market. Ladies love this gorgeous leather and we can see why. Prada Tessuto/Vela Leather has a subtle shimmer that glistens in the sunlight, making for one very glorious and snazzy bag. It can withstand almost anything, including water damage and rough use. It won’t scratch easily and the best part it this particular leather can be cleaned with ease. If marks or scuffs do show up, simply wipe the bag down with a washcloth and it will dazzle like new. Another grand leather from Prada that also receives a 10 out of 10!



Prada Vitello (Lux) Leather
To put it plainly, Prada Vitello/Vitello Lux Leather is a gorgeous looking leather that oozes high class. It’s a smooth, dazzling leather that is slick and fair. Many women are drawn to its elegant appearance and love the design of the Calfskin. It’s a great choice for all handbags as it is fairly durable and strong, and will hold up well even after months of use. Its durability allows the Prada Vitello/Vitello Lux Leather handbags to hold their shape and not get scuffed too easily. As with any Prada bag, you should try to be as careful as possible as some larger scratches may need professional care.



Prada Vitello Daino Leather
Do you see the interesting texture and design of this leather? It’s not deerskin, as you might imagine. It’s actually calfskin that has been treated to give the leather the same feel and look as ever-popular deerskin. That being said, PRada Vitello Daino Leather isn’t as soft or easily broken as deerskin. It is certainly “tough as nails” and can withstand any weather mother nature may throw at it (so yes, heat and water won’t have much effect on this leather). It is incredibly strong and will maintain structure of any handbag it’s thrown on. Prada Vitello Daino Leather is simply a fascinating leather that is as strong as it is trendy and beautiful.



Prada Cervo Leather
Buttery smooth with a highly sophisticated appearance, Prada Cervo Leather is a wonderful choice for handbags. It has a sensationally soft texture that many are drawn to, while the beautifully textured exterior is swank and stylish. However, before you place this leather on your bag, there’s a few things you should know. Yes, Prada Cervo Leather is fairly durable, but it will require some babying. It shouldn’t be handled roughly and should be kept out of danger, as scratches and scuffs can easily show up on a Prada Cervo Leather bag. But if you don’t mind the extra care, this leather is a very lovely and voguish choice.



Prada Nappa Gaufre Leather 
Prada Nappa Gaufre Leather is undoubtedly one of the most sought after leathers in the industry. It is incredibly thin and soft to touch with a classy and luxurious appearance that looks fabulous on literally any bag. Ladies love the immense detail and texture of this leather and fall in love with its polished design. And while you may think this leather is overly delicate due to its thinness, it is rather durable and can hold up well- although you should try to keep it away from harms way as much as possible. Prada Nappa Gaufre Leather is a definitely favorite and many believe it looks best in darker colors.



Prada Canapa/Canvas
Canvas has had a reputation as being delicate and easily destroyed. Stains stick to canvas like white on rice! However, when it comes to Prada Canapa/Canvas, we can certainly say that this isn’t entirely true. Prada certainly went out of their way to make sure their canvas could withstand the test of time by making it sturdy, luxurious, and durable. While Prada Canapa/Canvas is still more risky than other leathers, it is still much easier to clean than other canvas in the industry. If you’re opting for this texture, just try to take care of it as best you can and don’t treat it roughly!


Prada-cavallino-ponyhair-2Prada Cavallino Leather 
If you want to switch it up a bit and have a leather that’s different than the rest, Prada Cavallino Leather may be the choice for you. This stunning and sophisticated leather includes the beautiful and soft Calfskin hair, making it as appealing to the eye as it is interesting to touch. It makes any bag go from dull and boring to refined and polished in the blink of an eye. However, Prada Cavallino Leather can easily be stained, so you must handle this leather with care. However, if stains or scuffs do occur they may be easily removed by a professional.


Prada Tessuto Bomber 
The Prada Tessuto Bomber is an exquisite piece that is very appealing to look at. Its versailite exterior oozes elegance and is the perfect accessory for high end events or strolls around town. Ladies love the thick and pleated look of the exterior, giving it plenty of funk and chic attitude. The bag is made of the favored Prada Gaufre Nylon with a sensational rich leather trim for a sturdy and durable duo that can withstand almost anything. The Prada Tessuto Bomber is fairly easy to clean, and if any scratch or scuff dares penetrate this glorious bag, it can be cleaned professionally with ease. All in all, this is a wonderful accessory that can (and should) be taken everywhere.



Prada Tessuto Gauffré Leather
Prada Tessuto Gauffre Leather is heavenly. And don’t take it from me, take it from the thousands of fashionistas around the world that rave over this sensational leather. It comes with an elegant and delicate pleating, giving it that extra spark of trend and class to separate it from the rest. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but this refined leather is incredibly durable and can last for months on end. Its sturdiness is a key feature, which means your bag won’t slouch or sag, while also being able to withstand the elements with ease. This classic and dignified leather is certainly a favorite for any bag and can easily be worn season to season. Basque in the comfort and class that is Prada Tessuto Gauffre Leather and you’ll have no worries.

Prada is known for its bag artistry and craftmanship, something that has catapulted this Italian signature luxury brand to its well-deserved pedestal. For those on a hunt for their next Prada splurge, take a look at this Double Shopping Bag that looks extra posh and stylish.

This bag kind of reminds us of the iconic Prada Saffinano Luxury Tote but this one is quite refined with a longer body that makes it ideal for extra storage. Crafted from strong and soft calf leather, which guarantees quality and longevity. Just be careful not to put leathers under the sun and everything will take a good care of itself.

This double shopping bag comes in three lady-like colors that you can choose from: Baltic blue, Forest green and Cherry (and obvious there are more colors available in the boutique). You can also wear it across your body, over your shoulders or let it dangle from your hands as it has adjustable leather shoulder straps.

But what about the interior? You can find one large compartment for everything you need to store and there are three inside pockets, including two with zipper closures to structure your essentials.

And of course, it comes with the triangular metal lettering logo that Prada is known for. It is priced at $1600 USD or €1200 euro via Prada boutique.

This bag is not an unexceptional – beautiful but not uncommon. We’ve spotted some similar type in other designer brands; do you remember the Gucci XL Tote Bag?

The Prada Intarsia Handle Tote Bag – the fashion house created two kinds of handles – one double leather handle to carry on your shoulder or hands. And an intarsia handle in the center, refined with steel hardware. I find the second option a bit uncomfortable.

Besides one large compartment in the interior, it also comes with a clutch bag with zipper closure. The clutch can be removed and used separately, so its quite flexible and I love it.

However, I missing something. It would be better if they add a shoulder strap instead of the double leather handles. I like this option, do you?

Crafted from soft calf leather, measuring 34 x 28.5 x 15 cm, priced at €1400 euro via Prada boutique.

Prada Saffiano Leather Double Black and Red Bag Review

Categories:Other Brands

We are all accustomed with Prada’s surprising ability of designing very stylish and versatile handbags with a timeless appeal. But its newest collection introduces models that awake our imagination. One of my favorite ones is the Prada Saffiano Leather Double Bag in Black and Red. This purse comes at a shocking price of $4,240, but it also brings a welcomed doze of class, sophistication and color. It is the ultimate city bag that has the incredible ability of seamlessly transiting from workweek to weekend. Plus, it is perfect for any season.

prada saffiano double bag black and red

Crafted from rich Saffiano calf leather and constructed with a spacious and practical interior, this apparently classic looking purse is everything you need for a stylish look throughout the day. Speaking of Saffiano leather, I was planning for a while now to tell you more about this particular type of material. What is Saffiano leather and what makes it so special?

Prada manufactures this leather exclusively using a distinctive stamping method. As you can see from the pictures of most Prada Saffiano bags, this is a uniquely textured leather. To obtain it, the high quality calf hide leather used by Prada for its bags has been treated first and afterwards the special texture has been pressed on it by using a machinery. The result it a leather that has a cross-hatch finish on its surface, a recognizable diagonal pattern. The final step is to apply a wax treatment that gives it a classy, but subtle shine.

The Saffiano leather feels delicate when you touch it, but has the necessary firmness and sturdiness to stand tall by its own and endure daily use without showing even the slightest tear and wear mark. Its classic shape is what makes it so iconic. It is the type of bag that will always be in competition with famous designs such as the Chanel 2.55, Hemes Birkin, LV Speedy or Lady Dior. Besides its extremely appealing aesthetics, the Prada Saffiano Leather Double Bag Black and red is extremely wallet friendly and it is more suitable for younger fashionistas that need a stylish purse that can be worn both at work and at special events.

The black rectangular body of the Prada Saffiano Leather Double bag is manufactured entirely from Saffiano leather. The bold contrast is given by the extravagant double red crocodile leather handles that have an elegant prolonged arched shape. The top part doesn’t have a zipper closure. It is opened. There are only snap closures on the sides. To protect things like your wallet or other private belonging, at the center of its interior there is one inside flap pocket that has the top part from the same rich red crocodile leather and is marked with the PRADA name in gold metallic lettering.

The front of its exterior features the iconic yellow gold lettering logo on a black leather triangle which is located on the top part. There is also a key holder attached to one of the handles. This is made from the sophisticated red crocodile leather and featured stunning yellow gold details.To keep the two handles together the Prada Saffiano Leather Double Bag Black and Red comes with a small and discrete leather ring that has a snap closure.

This Prada purse in black and red  Saffiano is available with gold plated hardware that has been flawlessly crafted and polished. The model measures 11.8 inches in length, 8.8 inches heights and 5.5 inches width. At the inside, the bag features superior quality Nappa leather lining that has a very refined and chic look.

The black and red Saffiano bag is not just a very spacious and stylish handbag, it is also a very comfortable and versatile purse. Due to its attachable black Saffiano leather shoulder strap you can also use it as a cross body purse or as a shoulder bag.

There are some handbags that instantly catch your attention and their brand is recognizable at first glance. Extremely loved by fashionable women across the globe, the Prada Saffiano is one of the most iconic classic purses. This model comes in a variety of colors and materials, but one of the most stylish one is the black and red version. This design is everything you adore on a designer purse- it has a unique personality, it is elegant and effortlessly versatile.
