Premonition might be the theme for Prada’s Fall 2016 collection showing at Milan Fashion Week today, but you don’t need to be a seer to get your hands on Prada’s latest bag styles. The neutral-toned Pionniere and Cahier bags will be available for purchase at the house’s Milan, Paris, and London stores and on its e-commerce site tomorrow, February 26.
Both silhouettes feature bronze-hued hardware and thick shoulder straps. The Pionniere, a small, rounded flap bag, was introduced at Prada’s Fall 2016 men’s show, carried by hands covered in check gloves and and gilded metal bracelets.
The larger shape, the Cahier, is inspired by the bindings of antique books and features black colour-blocking and accentuated metal trim.
The news that Prada will adopt an accelerated delivery schedule for its bags follows proclamations from other Italian brands as well as French ones against see-now-buy-now runway shows. But if there’s one thing we know for sure about Prada, it’s that the house doesn’t play by anyone else’s rules.
