As we often note, men’s bags tend to be more subdued, more neutral and more cleanly designed than women’s bags; the men’s market just isn’t into as much look as female luxury consumers are. That’s the traditional view, anyway. The menswear industry is in a period of rapid modernization at the moment, and suddenly a much wider variety of aesthetics and ideas are considered within the mainstream. What better major designer to lead the way forward than Prada?

We’ve noted in the past that men’s bags are often adapted from successful women’s designs, but usually that happens with bags that are already well on their way toward unisex appeal. Taking the intricate motifs of the Prada Fall 2012 runway bags and streamlining them into the Prada Spazzolato Briefcase is a bold move, and in my mind, one that pays dividends. Thus, it’s the subject of this week’s Man Bag Monday.



The overlaid motifs on this Prada bag are far less flower-like than they are on their women’s counterpart, and they’re also greyscaled instead of multicolor. Both of those changes are in keeping with how brands generally adapt popular designs for men, but it still means that this bag is a good bit more detailed and flashy than most of those made for the menswear market. It’s for a fashion-forward customer who’s unconcerned with what men, gay or straight, are supposed to wear, but those are the best kind of menswear customers anyway. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $2050.
