I love my antigona! I have the medium size (the biggest now) and it's awesome. It fits notebooks and an ipad or 11in laptop. It has a lot of structure so it holds its shape. It's different from the 'tote' look which I like!

I have two Prada Zip totes which are similar to the Galleria and I LOVE them. They are very practical / functional and they look smart and professional. So I vote for the Prada!!

One of the sales people who visits our office comes in with a black Prada tote. It looks pretty impressive and presents a "I'm successful" image IMO. I think its their saffiano leather that makes me always notice it as a power bag.

The prada saffiano tote is definitely a good contender for a work bag. I agree with everyone above. It just looks good on someone who works in a professional setting.

Would you say it's a classic bag?

The Prada Double zip lux tote only comes in one size now which I find too small :sad:

I feel like many women carry the Prada bag in a work setting. Also, I would agree, it is actually a little small for my work necessities. In terms of the Antigona, I do agree it is not the 'conventional' work bag that most would think of. However, it is large and very structured. I think it to be somewhat classic because it has been around for sometime. I also like how I can double the bag for outside of work purposes. The Prada tote is very 'business' to me and I wouldn't want to use it without business attire or outside the office.

My workplace is quite casual... Jeans everyday with a smart top and boots.
I'm now also considering a black Mulberry Bayswater. Which would you go for between Antigona and Mulberry? If you were to choose the Antigona then which leather would you choose?

I just got my first prada - galleria double zip in two toned grey and I love it! I dont know if I would want to overload it with a heavy notebook but it would fit.

Would you wear the bag with jeans to work? I carry note pads. Just the essentials.

Thank you. It's just a few others have said it's more for business wear. That's a great deal you got :smile: I need to get my hands on the bigger size but it's been discontinued apparently and they only sell one size now :sad:
