    Hi ladies,
    I got this light blue top handle from farfetch. It matches the photo on the farfetch site. But I looked at the prada site and noticed that the material for the name tag is different. For this particular light blue color, the farfetch one has smooth leather for the name tag and the Prada site used saffiano leather. Although Prada also used smooth leather for other colors of the same bag (black for example). This is a pretty new model, and the quality of the item I got is good, if it's fake then I consider it a superfake. But I still worry about it being a fake because it's not exactly same as the one on the Prada site. The inconsistency is really throwing me off. The bag I got is from an independent boutique in Italy, maybe boutiques get slightly different models? What do you guys think?

  2. I'm not sure how you can tell the difference in leather when the photos on the Prada site are so small - and I can't see how to get them bigger with the same resolution.

    The Italian Prada site let you zoom in at higher resolution for a better look:


  4. Perhaps some of those are newer versions while others are previous season? That would be my guess.

    As I understand, you purchased the light blue one with the name tag being in Saffiano leather and it came from a boutique in Italy. The link you provided to the Italian Prada site shows the same bag but it's currently Out of stock and last sold at €1,550. The bag on the Canadian Prada site shows the bag with the name tag in smooth leather, but it's in stock, retails at $2,229 and it's New Season.

    I would assume it's only the newest versions of this bag that have the name tag in smooth leather.
