Prada Brown Alligator Embossed Silver Hoop Bag, 2000


According to Vogue, Prada is a designer brand that delivers through unexpected reinventions. From dresses, to jewelry, to handbags, Prada alters the staples of fashion into items with completely different essences. From the Spring/Summer 2003 collection, this rich, mocha brown alligator hand bag is a futuristic take on the classic purse.

Outfitted with a dramatic steel D-shaped hoop for a handle, this hand bag dons two twin pouches. There is an excellence in the balance of color here that mimics the balance of forms. It is a post-modern questioning of the purse and is equally curious and dramatic. As such, it is nothing short of a collector’s piece. This purse and variations can be seen on the 2003 runway.


Handle drop: 8 inches

Width of each compartment: 5.5 inches

Height of each compartment: 5 inches

Both of the  pouches have two silver snaps to fasten the flaps. The hoop handle has the Prada logo engraved, and is accented in the brown leather as a grip. In excellent condition, high-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
