Debuted at the PRADA F/W 2022 womenswear show by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, the Prada Supernova handbag reflects the heritage of the brand, historical and contemporaneous.
Executed in luxurious, highly-polished Spazzolato leather, the Supernova bag expresses the artisanal expertise in leather craft that has been the hallmark of Prada since its founding in 1913. The trapezoid shape and sensuous curved top handle recalls a timeless lineage of classic accessories – a history of women reflected through fashion – and also Prada’s own archive of innovative modern handbag design spanning almost five decades.
Proposed in a trio of proportions, dexterously moving between different moods, between shifting purposes and attitudes, the Supernova is ever-transforming – angular yet curvilinear, strong and feminine. Its construction emphasises freedom: the external zipper detail falls free, defined with enamelled Prada triangle emblems at each side.
The Spazzolato leather, a signature of Prada, is here approach anew: hand-sprayed with pigment along the perimeter in contrasting colors, like a shadow of itself, it emphasizes line and shape, silhouette and form. Pure Prada.
