Prada Vernice Gaufrean East West Handbag

The combination of heavily ruched and patent leather can really be a bit much, as Prada so ably proves with its Vernice Gaufrean East West Handbag.

It’s a nice idea - and the result should have been something so unbelievably chic that it would leave fashionistas pining for it - but this attempt isn’t executed very well.

Anyone with an appreciation for high gloss will probably gravitate towards this, but for those who prefer something more relaxed, there’s a slightly similar nylon version (the Tessuto Gaufrean East West) waiting for you.

The patent leather version is $1720 and the nylon is $1300.

Both at Diabro.
