Prada-Double-Shopping-Bag

Prada is known for its bag artistry and craftmanship, something that has catapulted this Italian signature luxury brand to its well-deserved pedestal. For those on a hunt for their next Prada splurge, take a look at this Double Shopping Bag that looks extra posh and stylish.

This bag kind of reminds us of the iconic Prada Saffinano Luxury Tote but this one is quite refined with a longer body that makes it ideal for extra storage. Crafted from strong and soft calf leather, which guarantees quality and longevity. Just be careful not to put leathers under the sun and everything will take a good care of itself.

This double shopping bag comes in three lady-like colors that you can choose from: Baltic blue, Forest green and Cherry (and obvious there are more colors available in the boutique). You can also wear it across your body, over your shoulders or let it dangle from your hands as it has adjustable leather shoulder straps.

But what about the interior? You can find one large compartment for everything you need to store and there are three inside pockets, including two with zipper closures to structure your essentials.

And of course, it comes with the triangular metal lettering logo that Prada is known for. It is priced at $1600 USD or €1200 euro via Prada boutique.

Chanel 2.55 Double Flap: Caviar vs Lambskin

Categories:Other Brands

The Chanel 2.55 purse commonly comes in two types of leathers: caviar and lambskin. The retail cost for either is about the same. Here we’ll go over the differences between black lambskin vs. black caviar leather: how they age, maintenance, and look. We’ve taken two iconic Chanel bags and put them side to side.

The lambskin on the left is from 1995. The caviar on the right is from 2004.

In general, the caviar leather is much more sturdy than its lambskin counterpart. Although a few years ago, lambskin was more expensive than caviar due to its very smooth and soft finish. Which look do we prefer? Depending on who you ask, you’ll get a different answer!

The lambskin rates higher for being very luxurious looking. The gleam from the black lambskin is quite dramatic and striking. But, trust us when we say either purses are dangerously beautiful!

For a day to day purse, the caviar rates higher due to its amazing ability to withstand abuse. Black lambskin is not fragile and is relatively easy to maintain due to its dark color.

To store a 2.55 Chanel, one must keep some tissue paper or other soft clean material in the body of the purse and set it on its bottom in a dry place out of the sunlight. For lambskin, the chain should not rest too heavily on the bag, and a soft sheet of fabric should be placed between the flaps. All materials used for storage should not have color rub off.

The caviar bag’s leather does not need to be conditioned. Contrary to popular belief, lambskin does not require conditioning either. This information was given to us by a Chanel specialist at the Chanel boutique! The shiny patina that you see on many older Chanel, both lambskin and caviar, is actually produced by wearing the bag over time!

These bags age magnificently. The striking lambskin is 17 years old! With age, the puffy quilting on lambskin will most likely flatten somewhat, and some wrinkling may show when the bag is not filled. Although, the lambskin is more prone to scratches and scuffs, you can see that none of it is very significant given moderate care.

Caviar will maintain its puffy quilting throughout time if stored correctly. It’s also harder to scratch and scuff. This makes it more ideal for an everyday purse.

If needed, either bag may be sent to a Chanel store for a full restoration for less than $300. Please keep in mind, neither bags in the photos have had to be repaired. This speaks to the impeccable quality of Chanel!

The Chanel 2.55′s interior is just as well made as the outside. This means superb strong structure on either bag.
