As style and fashion begins to become angled towards peoples instagram accounts, the most popular pieces need to combine visual impact and convenience. Tote's have rapidly become the go to bag for everyone, they combine these, and also have the opportunity to be sustainable, making them acceptable for all. Also, being unisex, if you like a design, they can still be rocked regardless of gender.
The consequence of course is that tote's are becoming pricier and pricier. Luxury labels are adding little touches to warrant sky-high prices, or just charging mark-up prices for nothing. These Black canvas tote's from Prada give a few features, bold print, saffiano leather handles, contrast lining, inner pockets, but nothing to mean they are worth the £980 price tag.
Still, if you disagree, they are all available now at Prada.com and in stores.
