Prada's new collections are always amongst the initial to arrive at online retailers for pre-order. The schedule has turn out to be so consistent that to me, the sight of saffiano leather and lean, structured totes feels similar to seeing that first red-breasted robin of spring, only more expensive. The non-runway bags from Prada Spring 2013 arrived at Neiman Marcus for presale yesterday [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and I think the temperature outside automatically ticked up a few degrees. (That's most likely all in my head.)

The brand new bags are all extremely Prada, of course, but I'm struck by how numerous of them are also very someone else. The Promenade Satchel is better known as being a Louis Vuitton Alma [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], the Cervo Fringe Tote looks similar to some recent Christian Louboutin ventures and also the flared gussets from the Saffiano Bicolor tote are a clear nod to the trend sparked by Celine [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Around the vibrant side, the awesome Parabole Tote, which debuted for Resort 2013, is thankfully nonetheless around (and in several new colors) and the Degrade Sequin Clutch is really a ideal spring wedding option.
