Prada presents its newest it-bag

03 November 2016

Some bags seem to have it all. They're trendy enough to match your fall wardrobe, but you can also wear it for years to come. They have a very classical shape, yet it also something very edgy. All the ingredients for a new it-bag and as it seems, the Prada Corsaire has it all. It embodies the modern approach that Miuccia Prada stands for and as far as we're concerned, the bag you should have in your closet for all the seasons to come.

Pirates of the Caribbean
The Prada Corsaire bag was first seen on the catwalk for the Fall 2016/2017 collection, an inspiring collection that also launched the highly popular Prada Pionniere bag. Corsaire is french for pirate and we can see where Prada is coming from with this quirky name. The shape of the bag does resemble saddle bags and the gold-rings peeking out give it a very edgy vibe. Easily something a more chic version of Captain Elizabeth Swann (Pirates of the Caribbean red.) could have worn. But no worries, anyone who might think that the golden rings are a little too much, can remove the embellishment.

Get organised!
Under the golden-ring fringe, a magnetic snap pouch can be found. A very good place to store your phone. Behind, you'll find two main compartments, that are big enough for all your essentials. They even have a pocket each, perfect for organising your bag. The bag also contains a zippered pocket. So you could say that everything is easy accessible. The bag has a long shoulder strap, so the bag can be worn either cross body or on the shoulder. A perfect everyday bag.

Fall hues and fabrics
The colours of the bag are perfect for fall, just as the fabric and patterns. The black makes it a more versatile bag, but if you feel like you need something else, the olive green and the brick red are perfect alternatives. The signature saffiano leather is available in combination with calf leather, but Prada also released the Corsaire in a beautiful quilted suede. You can also add little details to your bag, to make it more personal. Prada introduced their Tricks, small additional embellishments that will make your bag stand out. Imagine cute little notebooks and keys that you can add to your bag. The Prada bag is available for €1850.
