Making of the Prada Double Bag

Newly launched on February 12, the Prada Double Bag caught my eye while I was browsing bags in Selfridges with a friend last week. The Double Bag is aptly named, as it is a bag within a bag. The internal divider with a flap pocket can be removed and used as a clutch. (Similar to Mulberry’s Willow Bag although designed differently.) (UPDATE: The internal divider sadly isn’t removable.) The Double Bag that I saw was a basic black which I thought, would make a good workhorse tote. The red interior lining adds a subtle dash of color for those who prefer neutrals without being overpowering. As a practical person, the weight of a bag is a high priority for me, and this Prada Double Bag is almost feather light despite the interior leather lining. The saffiano leather is also durable and wears well over time. Should you be interested, it comes in two sizes. There is however, a drawback as the handle strap won’t go over my shoulder when wearing a coat.

Like the bag-obsessed person that I am, I couldn’t help but look up more details upon reaching home. Here’s some pretty pictures that I came across on the making of the Double Bag. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. (Bag nerd, much?)

The Double Bag comes in a rainbow of colors and you can view all the iterations here. Can I just add that I’d totally be counting pennies to purchase this bag if I was in the market for a basic durable black work tote? Alas…
