SAY SAFFIANO

It's been awhile since Prada had their moment of 'it' bags. After the Kelly, Birkin, and Alexa satchel storm in Indonesia, it is nice to know that a new breed of it bag is introduced. The Prada Saffiano may not be very new, but it's gaining (...alot actually) popularity. I saw MI:4 a couple weeks ago and bam.. that was the moment I realized that this Saffiano Lea Seydoux wore during the diamond exchange scene was going to be a huge hit (tried googling a movie still but I failed).

onto streetstyle shots.. the second one was from NYFW Fall 2012.. I love how small bags give bulky outfits more structure.

blogsphere's very own Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) with her camel Saffiano. The bag may look like it was meant for work attire but with the right styling (see Kate Bosworth below), it works well for casual dresscodes.

Miranda Kerr's in Red. There's one in a really pretty coral-ish version at Neiman.

The bags price start at about $1520 for the small ones (available at Neiman Marcus), not a bad price for a functional and classic bag I'd say. They're light-weight and they're multi pocketed which makes it perfect for a travel bag too. Last weekend I went to the mall, and I spotted at least 10 ladies wearing the Pradas. Predicting that these will be the next Balenciagas..

PS. Do check out these white versions with gold hardware at Saks Fifth. Everybody has them in Black or Beige, thus the whites are a real standout.
