Miuccia…Italian royalty…Saffiano briefcase

Miuccia…Italian royalty…Saffiano briefcase
2010/10/22 Maya H.

Before Miuccia Prada revitalized the brand with a black nylon bag, before Rem Koolhaas designed a SoHo wonderland that was more shrine than shop, Prada began as a leather-goods house—one that served as official leather supplier to the Italian royal family.  So it’s no wonder that the Prada briefcase is a study in design precision. It's a single buckle closure and a single gusset (meaning no fancy-pants laptop partition inside)-- the simple briefcase has become a mainstay of the brand’s accessories line.  There are two leathers to choose from: we recommend Saffiano, a pebbled leather whose look will remain unchanged long beyond your days of nine to five.

Saffiano Briefcase, $1,450
