Presenting: Selections from Prada Resort Collection 2009

Here are some of Bagaholic Babe's favourite picks from Prada's Resort 2009 Collection

Some of the key trends such as lace and ruffles from Prada's F/W 2008 collection has been carried over into the Resort 2009 Collection, as you'll notice below.

Cervo Lux Print Bowler - $2350

Lace has spilled over from F/W into Resort 2009. Choose between pink pebbled leather with black lace (shown above) or white pebbled leather with black lace. In Bagaholic Babe's opinion, the pink looks sweeter and less granny-ish. Generally not my style as it looks rather mature.

Tessuto Weave Tote - $1350

This is one of Bagaholic Babe's favourites from this Resort 2009 Collection. From the photo above, it may look woven ala Bottega Veneta, but after looking at it in the store, it is actually pleated to create a weave effect. Very interesting. If you're not a Tessuto (that's nylon, in Prada speak), you might prefer the metallic leather one below. The patent handles give the bag just the right touch of luxe. And if you're wondering where the Prada logo is, it's at the opening of the bag, facing inwards.

Vitello Mordore'A Hobo - $2490

Here's yet another woven bag, but in metallic leather this time.

Vernice One Bowler -$1360

Remember the multicoloured leather stripes from Prada's S/S 2008 collection earlier this year? Yes, those very bags that I commented on their jesterly look. We saw a few striped bags with stripes of different textures like alternating mix of patent and leather in F/W 2008, and now, it makes another appearance in the Resort 2009 Collection. This one fully patent bowler is much more classy, and no longer jesterly, imho.

Ruffled Chain-Strap Tote - $1295

The same ruffled leather look that we saw in this year's Fall/Winter collection has been carried over into next year's Resort collection. I was not a fan of the ruffled leather bowler from F/W but this is quite pleasant to the eye! Love the plastic chain-strap handles, but because of the chain straps, we can expect that it would be quite heavy.

These are only some of the bags from Prada's Resort Collection 2009. To view the entire collection, or ti Pre-Order them, head on over to Neiman Marcus today!
