The New Prada Black and White Stripes

With the furious din of bold trends that have swept through fashion in the past few seasons – brights! neons! pastels! exotics! colorblocking! fur! embellishments of all kinds! – it feels positively refreshing to see the clean-lined neutrals that are coming forth for Pre-Fall and Fall 2013. I’m not sure about any of you, but I need a palate cleanser something fierce, and a black-and-white bag seems like just the way to get it. In our latest edition of Look for Less, bothPrada and 3.1 Phillip Lim provide sharp-looking options.
Both these bags feature the same boxy shape and sparecenter-stripe patternbut the less-expensive Lim bag provides a bit of slouch and a more modernist feel with its soft leather andblack hardwareThe higher-priced Prada option gives you what will likely be a more long-termdurable bagwhat with the stiffrugged saffiano leather and black leather covering the wear-prone cornersWith gold hardwarethe look is also a bit more classic and will likely appeal to awider swath of consumersWhich do you prefer ?
