Review: Prada Saffiano Lux Bow Crossbody Bag & Prada Saffiano Bow Continental WalletMay 12, 2016
|Prada Saffiano Bow Continental Wallet // Prada Saffiano Lux Bow Crossbody Bag|
The Chanel WOC is one of my first designer purchases, though in recent years I have become increasingly fond of Prada's bow offerings in saffiano leather.
The two bags are comparable in size and both have twelve credit card slots and three inner compartments (two outer open compartments separated by a center zippered pocket), though the "crossbody bag" (7.5"W X 4.5"H X 2"D) can accommodate a smart phone because of its wider profile, while the "continental wallet" (7½"W X 3½"H X 1"D) is limited to storing cards, bills, and coins.
And while Prada still selectively participates in gift card events, these opportunities have become rarer. Buying these styles on sale is still possible with the right connections (like a friendly SA). It's also worthwhile calling stores directly if you have a style number come sale season, as Prada's individual store inventory is shared company-wide.
