Those already looking forward to shopping the autumn/winter 2016 collections will be pleased to hear that Prada’s latest handbags will be available to buy from Friday 26 February.
First shown during the Prada men’s and women’s autumn/winter 2016 catwalk shows, the two new styles from the Italian brand are sure to be among the season’s latest ‘It’ bags. The Pionnière bag, which displays Prada’s sophisticated artisanal workmanship, has a soft, rounded shape similar to a hunter’s game bag. Its original brass detailing pays homage to the military and the large shoulder strap is also a nod to army uniforms. While the Pionnière bag hints at the outdoors and an adventurous muse, the Cahier bag has a bookish aesthetic. Slightly larger than the Pionnière, the Cahier was inspired by the bindings of antique books and features bronze metal elements.
The news that Prada’s autumn/winter bags will be available immediately follows similar reports from others brands who are also adopting see-now buy-now catwalk shows.
