I love this new tartan print from Prada! They’ve nailed the age-old pattern in a way that few brands have managed to do, one that feels fresh, uncommon, and idiosyncratic in the best way possible. The loose strokes of layered and crosshatched lines, some diagonal, give the print a painterly feel, which takes tartan from preppy and old-school to modern and cool.
A pattern that speaks for itself: this is when a really simple flap-front shoulder bag shines because you wouldn’t want any other details or excess hardware conflicting with the main event. The chain-link strap is just the final touch to seal the deal. A statement piece that’s not overly specific, this bag is endlessly versatile. It comes in other colors, like tan and olive, but this high-contrast motif is my favorite. The only downside? Waiting until fall to receive it!
