Prada’s triangle bag reaches It-Bag status thanks to Kendall Jenner
The latest trend in designer handbags is geometric and it’s courtesy of Prada. The fashion house debuted its triangle bag on the Spring/Summer 2022 menswear show, quickly branching out into womenswear – and from there, into the arms of virtually every celebrity and influencer.
Kendall Jenner is the latest to embrace the unique shape, posting a series of photos with her olive green Prada Symbol bag. The shoulder bag fits perfectly under her arm, a gold chain and leather strap keep it secure – and undeniably stylish.
The triangular silhouette is reflected on the geometric pattern, both inspired by the famous Prada heritage logo. The bag itself is available in many colors, materials, and sizes, including a shoulder bag, wristlet-sized clutch, mini, and keychain. Styles range from $4,400 for the sheepskin design to $625 for the mini clutch that doubles as a coin purse.
Beyond Jenner, celebrities like Storm Reid, Rita Ora and Valentina Ferragni have worn the luxury accessory, along with several K-pop idols, like Younghoon from The Boyz, Seventeen’s Mingyu and Sana from Twice. With such star power, the style could replace Gucci’s Attaché or Diesel’s 1DR as the handbag of the season.
The triangle handbag is slowly making its way to it-bag status, and as a fan of geometric silhouettes, I’m not mad at it.
