I have been wanting the saffiano in marmo grey for some time. Mostly because of the silver hardware :love:

I went to London last week and began my hunt for this bag. I went to every Prada store and asked if they had the BN1786 in marmo. They only had that bag with the pocket outside or a two toned grey bag in the colour marmo.

I love the marmo.. the silver hardware makes it stands even more.. I saw it in my local btq 3 months ago, I was about to buy it but they didn't have bn2274 or bn1801. So I went home with tamaris. Now I regreted it :sad: Pick the marmo it is very lovely gray! ( I owned a pomice gray once and saw argilla in person too ).

I have not used the bags yet so I don't know if they get denim transfer easy :/ I think marmo is a much darker grey. It's a much cooler grey than argilla which I think is a warmer grey. I don't think marmo is a clay shade. Maybe grey with som blue undertones. But i'm no color expert :lol:

Hi, I'm new here..thank you so much for the pictures! However, I'm so confused...what exactly is "argilla?" I went to Bloomingdale's today and was deciding between Pumice and Marmo (with silver hardware)...in the BN1874 (smaller saffiano tote). Now, on the Prada website, I see only "clay gray" and "light gray." Which is argilla? Is argilla Cameo? I'm so confused, because the colors apparently have Italian names and then English names. Which are the two in the picture--I know they're argilla and marmo, but what is argilla called on the Prada website, and is marmo Clay gray?

I'm torn between marmo with silver hardware and pumice (light gray, gold hardware). I LOVE marmo but I'm afraid it's too much of a fall/winter bag. The sales lady said that pumice is much more all-season. But then I keep hearing about "cameo" online. Is cameo argilla? Why can't Prada come up with a single color naming system! Thanks for any help you can provide!

I really love marmo w/ silver but I'm afraid I'll be too limited to 2 seasons. But pumice (light gray) seems so light, almost plain! And I love the silver hardware. Thanks!

I am liking the marmo :smile: I like the SHW with the color.



I love it, too, but do you think it's too limiting, season-wise? It's not really a spring/summer bag (and I like to use mine year-round when possible)...


Very good question! Personally, I think that since it is neutral, it can be for any season. It's not black so it won't be too severe. And, even black can be for any season, I think- since it is neutral again - though this color might prove too severe for some during spring/summer (but I do not find that to be the case for myself). That's actually the beauty of getting a bag in a more neutral color.


Anybody else can chime in with their own views as well. :biggrin:
