We don’t know about you, but we’ve been seeing the Prada raffia tote bag all over our Instagram feeds. The designer handbag launched all the way back in 2020, and has become a wardrobe staple ever since.
It’s the perfect addition to your Summer wardrobe, with a soft, deconstructed design and the embroidered Prada logo complementing any outfit. If you’re a fan of the bag, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s back for 2022, available in a range of fun colourways.
Although we are big fans of the bag, it is definitely more of an investment piece. The tote currently retails at £1,400 on the Prada website, but if you’re planning on using it for years to come, then we think it’s well worth the cost.
Raffia Tote Bag, £1,400 | Prada
