My latest bag purchase is this Prada baltic blue leather holdall bag. I have wanted to add a Prada leather holdall to my Prada bag collection since 2010 (10th piece of Prada luggage). The bag measures approx. 18 x 9 x 9 inches.
This bag is baltic blue, which is a lot brighter than a classic navy, it gives it an extra pop when looking at. As you can see from the images above it has a central stripe on one side in a dark blue and a grey. This has been stitched into the leather. Above this is the metal Prada logo. This is not the classic triangle logo and so is slightly more discreet.
The bag comes complete with a classic Prada lock with a Prada logo on it. This is a great touch and you can use the very hard leather zipper to lock it.
The keys for the lock are stored in their own leather pouch, which is in the same leather as the bag.
The bag comes with a leather address tag which is a excellent touch, these are sold separately by Prada so having one included in matching leather is great.
The zip for the bag is extremely solid and hardwearing. In the image above you can see the metal hook for the bags body strap, the bag has excellent detailing throughout, small Prada logos on all the metal hardware and leather detailing.
The strap is finished with matching leather detailing and Prada logo matching metal hardware as the bag.
A small cloth pouch is included for the body bag strap with has a large Prada logo on both the bag and the strap. The Prada logo on the body strap is a nice touch, it isn’t too loud or discreet.
Inside the bag is a Prada Milano metal plaque with leather detailing around the zip. There are two large zip compartments on each side of the bag, ideal for storing keys and other small items.
The bag is lined in black classic Prada material with the Prada logo embossed throughout.
The handles are fused and stitched together to create extremely strong handles. This bag with proper storage (when not in use) could easily be used over 1-2 decades and still look in great condition. The bag is made of the classic Saffiano leather which is Prada signature leather. Being one of my favourite leather types, I find it extremely hardwearing. This distinctive leather is wonderful when matched with other Saffiano items such as wallets, iPhone cases and other accessories.
This bag is ideal for weekend trips ideally 1-3 nights in duration. Depending on the number of outfit changes you require. Perfect for travel to the coast where not too many heavy outfits are needed. I wouldn’t recommend this bag for the gym however due to the leather possibly being damaged when you place it in and out of lockers. This bag is better for hand luggage on a trip or in the back seat of the car.
