Prada: Pradasphere Hong Kong Collection

Categories:Other Brands

prada_pradasphere1Ahead of Prada’s grand opening of its Pradasphere exhibition which kicks off in Hong Kong next week, here’s your quick first look at some of the exclusives that will be available at selected Prada boutiques during the period of the exhibition.

Besides being able to pre-order Spring-Summer 2015 RTW pieces from both womens and mens collections (along with a special handmade MTO knitwear service exclusive to Prada Alexandra House, you’ll also find specially-created editions of everything from bags and shoes to accessories like SLGs to complement most everything Miuccia Prada has done that relates to the universe of Prada. And while it will be too exhaustive to feature everything here at one go (I say get an air ticket to Hong Kong, experience the exhibition for yourself and then hit the stores running to check out all the exclusives), here are some of my picks.

prada_pradasphere4Shoes. It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love Prada’s shoes, especially with the immense variety of styles they come in for both men and women. And with the gamut of prints and re-issues from S/S1997 and F/W2000, just to name a few, as part of Pradasphere’s MTO Shoe Project, there really isn’t a reason why you shouldn’t indulge, especially when you missed out the first time.

prada_pradasphere3Then there are these, the Saffiano leather carry-ons that come in 6 different colours and accompanying motifs that are limited to 1 exclusive piece per combination. In other words, really rare and special, and I suspect, might cost me more than just an arm and a leg.

prada_pradasphere6Last but not least, here are some bags for the ladies (and a clutch or two for the metrosexual men) that feature the same prints from Holliday & Brown as the gorgeous carry-ons. All in all you’ll find 3 styles, the Galleria, the Twin Turn-Lock and a clutch with a push lock closure in the most crazily vivid of prints that are guaranteed to put that extra spring in your step. Priced between HKD10,500 and HKD34,100, you’ll find these pieces at 3 Prada boutiques, namely Alexandra House, Peninsula and IFC.

Prada Made-To-Order Décolleté Collection

Categories:Designer Shoes

prada_mto-decollete-collection1

Earlier this month I covered Prada’s MTO Micro Sole Shoes service that’s running till the end of the month at Prada ION Orchard. Today we’ll take a look at another limited MTO service that kicks off in Singapore for around two weeks next month. More specifically, it will run from 6 November to 16 November at Prada ION Orchard, so if you’re keen to customise yourself a pair of pumps, don’t forget to note the dates down.

prada_mto-decollete-collection3So what makes up the Made-To-Order Décolleté collection, you ask? A total of 8 styles are available, from pumps to peep-toes and even sandals, with or without platforms if you so decide. As far as heel heights are concerned, there are 6 available, from the safe 45 mm to ‘teetering with death’ at 135 mm.

And then there are 9 materials to choose from, from precious croc to luscious satin and just about everything else in-between, from ostrich to suede and calf leathers in various finishes. The number of colours to choose from after you’ve picked a style, heel and leather is mind-blowing; we are looking at a total of 89 (YES, 89!) colour options in all.

prada_mto-decollete-collection2Priced from SGD1160 to SGD3870 depending on the final combination you pick, expect to wait around 2 and a half months for your pair to be crafted, and if you’re sick of not finding that perfect pair from what’s available in the market today, this is your chance to embrace your inner Carrie Bradshaw. With the added option of even adding your initials on the sole, of course.

Prada Micro Soles Shoe Collection

Categories:Designer Shoes

prada_micro-soles-shoe-collection3If you’re one of those who believes that good things come to those who wait, then you’ll totally get the Prada Micro Soles Shoe collection that takes at least 60 days to arrive after you’ve placed an order. A new made-to-order service that’s now available in Singapore for a limited period of time (1 to 15 October, Prada Paragon, 16 to 31 October, Prada ION Orchard), this MTO collection celebrates the stacked rubber-soled brogues that were instant fashion darlings the moment they walked the runway back in 2011.

prada_micro-soles-shoe-collection1And for those who missed out then (and subsequently just couldn’t find the combination of shoe and sole they wanted), I promise you’ll be spoiled for choice this time round with 32 different colour combinations (chose from polished calf to pastels and even metallic hues) ripe for the picking, from solid hues to two-tone combinations, with exotics like python and crocodile thrown in for those who want to make their pair a tad more special. As for those soles, there are 5 different stacked rubber ones to choose from, each one more colourful than the last.

prada_micro-soles-shoe-collection2Available in sizes all the way till 45, do note that this collection is made primarily for the ladies, so unless you have narrow feet, it might not be suitable for you boys. Priced from SGD1790 for the calf leather options (SGD3250 and SGD3980 respectively for the ones in python and crocodile), the hardest part of this exercise is perhaps not behaving like a kid in a candy store, which will be hard once you start picking out the combination you love the most.

Good Prada Or Nada! How To Spot Bad Replica Prada Saffiano Bags From A Distance

Categories:Other Brands

Replica Prada Saffiano bags are extremely popular, which means there are also a lot of bad replicas out there. Since you’re interested in these bags, I thought this “How to spot a fake Prada bag” guide was quite necessary.

These photos of authentic and replica Prada purses will make it easier for you to tell bad replica Prada Saffiano bags from the good ones. My purpose is to help you get the best Prada replica handbags and stay away from the cheap-looking fake Prada bags but also to make it easier for you to learn how to tell a real Prada purse from a fake one.

The Saffiano leather has a very specific cross-hatch finish to it, which is a unique diagonal pattern. This type of leather is also known for its durability and resistance to scratches and also a water repellent. But since some replica sellers don’t even know what they are actually selling, it is possible to find replica Prada bags that are presented as Saffiano, while their leather is actually smooth and doesn’t have the pattern I told you about. It shouldn’t surprise you that there are knock off Prada bags on eBay or other sites that seem trustworthy, so learn how to check every detail.

Checking the logo is the simplest way to learn how to spot a fake Prada bag. The “R” in Prada should have a gap in between the curve and the leg. If this distinctive curve is missing, then you’ve come across a bad replica Prada Saffiano. This is a common mistake when it comes to knockoff Prada handbags no matter how good they are, therefore one of the first things you should check before buying a replica Prada handbag. Also, the spaces between the letters R, A, D are slightly closer than the spaces between P and R and D and A. You can trust me one this one, cheap Prada purses never have a perfect logo.

The hardware is also extremely important when it comes to Prada knockoffs. First, you should check the color and the shine. It should have a luxurious sheen to it and have a bright gold tone. If it’s too shiny then it will certainly look cheap. The hardware of bad Prada fake bags is usually made of cheap metals that will rust or lose its shine in time and also breaks easily. Also, make sure that the tone of the zipper pulls and that of the zipper itself match. You see, learning how to spot a fake Prada bag is all about checking even the smallest details!

If you want to know how to tell if a Prada bag is real or not, you should always check the engravings. All hardware including zipper pulls, bottom studs, belt buckle closures and snap buttons should be engraved with “Prada”. The protective studs and the snap buttons should be engraved twice. Check out to see if the letters are clean and clear. It’s things like these that make the difference between really good replica Prada handbags and the mediocre ones in most of the cases.

The lining of replica Prada Saffiano bags should be the Prada signature fabric with the word “Prada” repeating every other row and a symbol that looks like a sideway “S”. The lining should either match the color of the bag or be black. Don’t worry, just because the lining doesn’t have the same color as the exterior of the bag, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad fake! The background of the metal plate should match the color of the bag.

The stitching is also extremely important. No sloppy, inconsistent or uneven stitching allowed in high quality Prada replica handbags! Still, if there is some thread showing through, at least make sure it’s not in a visible place.

Maybe you didn’t know this, but in 2005 Prada has moved the production of its handbags to China to save manufacturing costs. So just because it says it’s made in China, it doesn’t mean it’s a fake! Prada is not the only high end fashion brand to do so but I know it’s confusing since replica Prada handbags are made in China too. What do you know, China makes cheap Prada purses and extremely expensive ones too!
