Prada Saffiano Double Zip Tote Design
The Prada Saffiano tote design may change slightly from season to season: zippers vs. no zipper rims, open vs. divided interior compartment, leather vs. cloth trimming on internal pockets, etc. However, the boxy rectangular shape of the bag remains the same. The classic shape of the bag is very appropriate for work. With minimal hardware the bag is not loud and in your face even though it is a designer bag. The bag is also very practical; it can be dressed up and down, especially when worn with the shoulder strap.
The bag I purchased is the Prada Saffiano Double Zip tote in the Cammeo color. I got the medium size with a shoulder strap with five holes for the user to adjust the length (bag dimensions: 13 x 9.5 x 5.5 inches). The bag has two zipped compartments and four feet on the bottom of the bag. The center internal compartment is lined with cloth, it has one zipped compartment, three additional smaller pockets and no dividers. I rarely use the two side zip compartments because the zipper is not so smooth and you will see a bulge with a larger wallet.
The sides of the bag have two snap buttons. I snap the buttons close most of the time; it helps to reduce the size of the bag opening and I like the shape more. However, if you have to fill up your bag, you can unbuckle the sides for more room.
Overall, the bag came with a black box, a white dust bag and an authenticity card. You can hold the bag on your hand, at the crock of your arm, over the shoulder or cross body using the shoulder strap. I love the shoulder strap and wear the bag over the shoulder with the strap most of the time!
