VMAN NEWS: Prada Triangle Bag
Presenting the men’s “it-bag” of the Spring-Summer 2022
Featured on distressed denim dresses, glitzy re-edition handbags, and emblazoned on top of slinky ready-to-wear, Prada’s triangle logo plaque has become a phenomenon in and of itself. While instantly recognizable monograms and boisterous design codes have been mainstays of other luxury labels, Prada’s trademark angular emblem has always exuded the understated aura of “If you know, you know.” Continuing with that distinct allure, the Italian brand’s Spring/Summer 2022 menswear collection featured its latest exploration of the logo in accessory form—the Prada Triangle bag.
A nod to the brand’s heritage, the lightweight, three-dimensional bag takes the protruding shape of the famed triangular logo. Presented alongside co-creative directors Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada’s hopeful display of utopian-inspired ready-to-wear, the newly released accessory arrives in bold hues and fresh materials—hemp, raffia, and signature Saffiano leather. The bag also features utilitarian touchpoints like a removable pouch and adjustable strap that are made complete by the accessory’s unmistakable silhouette.
Originally developed during the brand’s inception, the triangle logo is reimagined in bag form thanks to an of-the-moment high-frequency embossing technique. Available in bold, tone-on-tone colorways— yellow, black, white, green—the Triangle bag lets its shape and quiet details do the talking. Instead of imprinting a trademark or featuring a sprawling monogram, the accessory, itself, has become the logo.
As always, Prada’s simplistic innovation is on full display, making the Triangle bag the perfect accessory for those in the know.
