After checking out the adorable Lanvin’s “120 years” fabric totes that retail for around $1000 CAD, these Prada BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) nylon cuties seem downright affordable at 200 EUR ($250 CAD). That is, of course, if you can ignore the fact that Forever 21 versions would cost you all of two bucks!
These bags come in a variety of patterns and colors, from the bright yellow “Apebarca”, to the abstract “Rome” motif, there’s a BYOB tote for everyone. The one bag in this collection I really can get behind, and which I think will give you the most bang for your buck is the “Mistolino” cotton and linen tote, which also retails for 200 EUR, but has leather handles and comes in four different colors. These totes are a bit more grown up, but perhaps a bit less fun than their nylon counterparts.
But whether you decide to splurge on a Prada eco-friendly tote, or go grocery shopping with a Forever 21 cheapie, please remember – plastic bags are never in style.
