Call me crazy, but after months and months of coveting the Celine Leather Luggage Shopper, I actually found one I loved, in-store, no wait-list necessary, and ultimately decided against it. Why? Because as much as I love the design and quality of the bag, the leather was softer than I wanted and I realized I needed something more structured; more sturdy, and with a shoulder strap. So I turned to Prada. For years Prada has been making classic, sturdy, structured nappa leather, calfskin and deerskin bags, in all shapes and sizes, and many with detachable shoulder straps.
Looking ahead to Fall, I began thinking of the changing seasons which usher in bulky coats, umbrellas and lots of layers, so versatility in a bag was key. This Prada Nappa Antique Tote was perfect – in size (a roomy 14″W X 9″H X 5½”D); in shape – a versatile, structured pebbled calfskin tote bag with double top handles and a removable, adjustable shoulder strap; and color – a rich emerald green hue. It also features multiple zip pockets and compartments, plus an open compartment with a snap closure, and is luxuriously lined in leather.
Think I made the right choice?
