Hi guys I am fairly new with Prada but upon seeing this bag I really fell in love with it. Researching lambskin is not the usual leather prada use, its mostly saffiano. Anyone owns this bag or other variations of lambskin from prada. I wanna hear some love or negative stuff .. TIA

You only see and hear about saffiano these days because that's what the public has been clamoring for, so naturally Prada is cranking out those by the billions!

Lambskin Prada bags have been a staple in their collection for many years. The leather gaufre line is made of lambskin (as well as nylon and a few deerskin styles). I had a bucket style Prada from around 8 years ago that was lambskin inside and out. It was luscious.

Since you said you also welcomed "negative" feedback, the bag you posted is a sinful waste of perfectly good leather! It sends me back almost 30 years to Back to the Future . When I first saw these "bomber bags" on Prada's website, this was what I saw:

Now THESE are what a Prada lambskin bag should look like. A few of the lovelies that have passed through my hands. :smile:

While I don't have strong feelings for or against the bomber tote, these bags are just TDF, PP!!! :love: I think they're all just beautiful, but my favorite might be the last bag (the one in the last 2 pics). I don't think I've seen that bag in real life. Swoon! :tender:

That satchel is from the 2007 collection, if my fried brain is working. For what ever reason, it wasn't that popular. Fashionphile actually has three of the versions that were offered at that time, not the one in the photos, but similar. Yes, they're authentic. ;)

I've been watching the last one (the dark brown satchel) forever, hoping they'd drop the price, but it's still way over my budget!

Ack, I know what you mean about the price! I was hoping to see a much cheaper price tag, but oh well. I think I still prefer yours though - the brown on yours is amazing! One of the bags on Fashionphile looks very similar to yours and is brown too (the third/last link), but the brown on yours is more drool-worthy (to me, anyway). But since I can't have your bag, I'm sorry to say that I'm now also watching the dark brown satchel (added it to my wishlist, and set up an alert for discounts) :graucho: If they bring the price down, I just might get it! Current price is also out of my current budget, sigh.

I was eyeballing a lamb skin bag on Yoogi's, but have never gotten fully serious about it. Part because the price is steep, and part because I'm not sure what to make of the straps. It says it's an 18" drop...I have cross bodies that are an 18" drop. But this doesn't look like you could wear it crossbody...so I was worried the straps may be an awkward length. I love the color and the hardware though, and it looks nice and roomy. I ended up going with a Mulberry Alexa. My first foray into the brand, so I'll see how it goes.

Here's the lamb skin Prada though:

That IS cute :tup: I really like the color. The price, not so much :giggles:

Let me know how the Alexa experience goes. I know someone who also just got one.

The price on that one on Yoogi's actually was even higher when I started watching it, and it's dropped some. It's been on there forever, so I keep hoping that maybe they'll do another more significant reduction.

I fell in love with an Alexa in bluebell (it's a bit lighter blue than that Prada bag) but it disappeared off the Mulberry web site before I got it. I tried everything and finally someone on the Mulberry forum recommended a sales associate at a Mulberry outlet in California. I called and he set it up to ship to me (only $10 shipping too!) It's due to arrive sometime this week, so I'm pretty excited! First purse purchase in almost a year, when I got my Prada Daino tote.

Ooh, exciting! Hope the bag gets to you safely and in great condition.


I'm surprised that the Prada on Yoogi's was actually even more expensive before?! I found the current price already way too steep for stingy little ol' me. :P


Good luck with your Alexa, and do tell how you like it!
