Prada Leather Bow Satchel

Normally I can't resist bow detail bags, but I am wondering what is going on with this Prada beige/black bag. These 2 bows look like they are just hanging there. Somehow the long double handles, the 2 bows and the bag just do not look congruent. I think I will like the bag a little bit more with shorter handheld handles. There is just something odd with the design and the placement of these handles. Prada is probable trying to create a functional yet stylish bag but this is a no for me. What do you think, savvy or not so much?
This bag measures 10" x 13" x 5" and retails for $1450.

  2. Hi there-I have to agree, they look like an afterthought, rather than complimenting the bag. Not for me, I'm afraid!

  3. Hi! I like the style of the bag but I think the color of the bow/ties throws it off -- but I think I like it more than I hate it :-) Thanks!

  9. I like the bow idea but it's just not executed very well on this bag. They look quite out of place and like an afterthought.

  10. not so much for me. probably if the bows are of the same color as the bag itself it might have worked.

  11. I think leather is not the best material for the bows. It's too stiff. Nice idea, though. Hopefully someone can do a version that works.

  12. I love the bag...just not sure about the bows.

  13. I think the problem is that the bows are in another colour, and maybe just one would be better.
    Well I'm becoming obssessed with bows....
