I like those messenger bags. I wouldn't buy them though because you could easily just attach a keychain to a regular messenger.

I like this one. It looks very useful. I love lots of pockets.

Unfortunately, I bet it costs as much as a half year's house-payments.
I totally agree!

I do think the colorful bags are cute, but I could make just as good of a bag at home by making a whimsical applique and creating a keychain with some cheapie toys from the Family Dollar store.

Maybe that is what I will do for my new summer bag...

I think I might be the only who is not a fan It seems that Prada might be trying too hard to appeal to the younger generation... The keychains etc, etc make for a tacky look imo

There are a lot of cute keychains you can get for under $5. Attaching them to a bag is pretty easy. The good thing is, messenger bags are back in style so it will be easier to find nice ones at regular mainstream stores. I tried to get into shoulder bags, but they just don't do it for me. Maybe my shoulders are too big...

I actually like some of them, but I really don't like the keychains. The last one would be adorable without them--I'd buy it and take them off. Actually, I really love that last bag, and I'm not usually a big Prada fan. Too bad I can't afford it... (Oh, bag fairy! *hint hint*)

The others are kind of cute, but they're not worth Prada prices.

They're very cute but certainly not worth the money I know they'll charge for them...

I love the webbing straps on the last bag - but Mulberry were doing that donkey's years ago. All those sorts of bags are descended from cartridge bags used in the two World Wars.

Overall the bags are okay but the quirky accents all strike me as derivative and that's disappointing for Prada.

I think they look cheap. But I'm sure they're not...

You're not alone.

This is such a distinctly un-Prada thing to do, whose bags have always been classic, low-key, and grown-up. Personally I think the keychains would look totally ridiculous and out of place even in a much younger brand like Miu Miu, let alone Prada.

This is a sign of a lost of focus and the beginning of brand schizophrenia. We don't need another Dior.
